The Informant!

Take a look at The Informant!'s (2009) movie poster. Would you take this movie seriously? Or as a joke? Now check out the trailer. Would you take this movie seriously? Or as a joke? I didn't know how to take the movie. But I think either way it would be a serious joke of a movie.
The Informant! is about a man, Mark Whitacre (Matt Damon) who comes across a price fixing problem, and becomes an informant for the government. But then there's a lttle problem, Mark is impartial to telling a few lies...some really big, creative lies.
The reason I couldn't write much about the plot was the fact that I didn't understand...or pay much attention to...this movie. It was insanely boring, and the only thing holding it up was a fat Matt Damon. Who looked like he was living in the 70s instead of the 90s. Honestly, Steven Soderbergh has had more disasters than masterpieces, isn't it time he made something great.
So the critics love it. But I saw at least 10 people today picking up the case, thinking 'hey this looks funny', but then reading further and putting it back. Now I'm wondering whether anyone will ever pay $9 to watch it. It's not all bad, thanks to Damon, but it's definitely not good either.
