I have never cried so hard or tried so hard to figure out a movie in my life. I rented it happily ignorant of the actual plot, dude, all I can say is I am never going in the ocean ever again and I will be more careful on my cell phone in the car after seeing this movie.
I won't give away the plot because trying to figure out the big secret is the whole reason it is interesting. It's one of those films you see once and then when you see it again everything falls into place and it makes more sense. I call it the "Sixth Sense Syndrome."
This movie is worth seeing but let me tell you bring tissues because if you don't cry at this movie then you are a robot and need to report back to Oz to get a heart, you tin man. Again, great acting from Will Smith, although I miss funny and biting Will Smith such as in Men in Black and Independence Day (ID one of my favorites) this one is a must rent! I just say rent because although it would be nice to go back and watch it again now knowing the plot and all the big "secrets" I just couldn't watch it again without entering a deep state of depression. Come on Will Smith give us some movies that you can make up a rap to and sell all those records before your son gets more popular than you! SNAP! So again, MUST RENT! but only rent.
*** Three stars because I hate movies where you can't even see the screen because you are crying so hard, for you ladies make sure to wear waterproof mascara and for you men, this will not put her in a romantic mood, more than anything she will just be depressed and develop a sudden "headache."
RENT IT NOW at your local movie getting place! bye
