I watched this for 2 reasons...I had heard all the talk in the media and well, there was nothing left to take out at the library. I wasn't actually relishing the thought of watching a movie that was about cowboys in love. However, that being noted, I was incredibly surprized by the film. If you have some issues with homosexuality, you don't have to enjoy the story from that perspective...there are many other ways to relate to it. The movie avoids being too political, a great relief. The highlights: musical score, cinematography, acting, casting, and the the script. There were a couple of minor flaws. It was difficult to age the characters over a 20-year period and it may have been better to see a little more on the impact the men's relationship had on their wives.

What's the buzz

This movie was slow, boring and highly overrated, that is why it did not win the Academy Award and Crash did. At the last minute the Hollywood crew must have realized its shortcomings.

This movie was slow, boring and highly overrated, that is why it did not win the Academy Award and Crash did. At the last minute the Hollywood crew must have realized its shortcomings.

Although it dealt with the subject matter very realistically and tenderly, it failed as a movie in many levels. If not for the subject matter it would not have been the hit it was. Put a man and a woman as main characters and everyone would have been "ho hum".

    Brokeback broke it!

    I felt a little let down by this movie. I had never seen it when it was in the theater, but I had wanted it. It was SO long. And it wasn't anything of what I had expected... a bit disappointing. I mean the message is great, but you have to watch the entire movie.. and it is so long, how could you not fall asleep? Something is missing.
