    Awful. Boring. Awfully Boring.

    "Closer" is one of the all-time WORST movies I have ever seen. I do find it ironic that a movie that is all about sex- where all characters do is talk frankly about sex- is miserably BORING. The 4 main characters are so shallow and selfish, they don't even seem human. If these characters had ANY human traits, we might connect with them, care about them, understand them, or (at least) be interested in them, if only to a small degree. I am not a Julia Roberts fan, but she has the one and only interesting scene in "Closer", where her character viciously tells her husband (Clive Owen) about how much better a lover Jude Law's character is compared to him. I thought Natalie Portman gave a poor performance (as usual) and I cannot believe how many award nominations she received for "Closer" -just because Portman cries in every other scene she is in, does not make her a good actress. After watching "Closer", the only thing you will feel is deep regret for wasting and losing 2 hours of your life on such a boring movie.

    JUST AWFUL !!!

    THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DISGUSTING MOVIES I HAVE EVER SEEN. THE LANGUAGE IS ABOMINABLE. I CAN'T BELIEVE JULIA ROBERTS WOULD MAKE SUCH GARBAGE AND THAT NATALIE PORTMAN WOULD BE DESPERATE ENOUGH TO TAKE THIS ROLE. DON'T WASTER YOUR MONEY OR TIME ON THIS FILTH.

    The Worst Movie Ever

    I am a man of action flicks, dumb comedies, and meaningful love stories. On the contary, this was not meaningful. Try worthless drizzle over a DVD. It was so dirty and stupid. The movie had more possibility that most in the genre but it failed miserably.

    Don't waste your time.

    I kept waiting for something redeeming to happen in this film to no avail. It was depressing throughout and left me with an empty feeling. I will say the actors were believable in their roles -- all selfish, obsessive, insensitive individuals. In the end I didn't care about a single one of them. Ugh, that's an hour and 44 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    This movie doesn't deserve a star

    This is the lamest movie I've ever seen Jude Law, Julia Roberts, or Natalie Portman in. I couldn't even get 30 minutes into it without yanking it out of my DVD player. Pointless trash.

    Romantic Comedy It Is Not!!!!!

    With trailers on television I expected this to be a romantic comedy. What a mistake on my part - next time I see an "R" rating, I will not pursue. This movie, although real life, touches the capsule of pain we all carry for loves that have gone wrong. I am not a fan of reliving that pain and although this movie, screenplay, etc. may be brilliant, it hurts too much to watch.

    What was Julia thinking?

    I'm a huge fan of Julia Roberts and she was superb as always in this film. But even Julia’s skills couldn’t save this movie because it had no point, and was filled with selfish characters that couldn’t remain faithful to save their lives. I’m not sure what she was thinking when she agreed to take this role, but it is definitely not the highlight of her career.
