Thought the movie was great. I read the book and a lot was left out but I'm sure that was necessary to keep the movie from being too long. The acting by the main characters was excellant except for southern accents. I've yet to see a movie where a northerner was able to fake a believable southern draw. However, that did not detract that much from the movie. The language and possibly the brief nudity would not, in my opinion, make it suitable for younger audiances. The movie also reveals a lot about how politicians can wrangle around to get their pet projects accomplished. In that sense, one could say that the movie was educational as well as very entertaining. And, as always, Overstock's service was very good and I received the DVD a few days after I ordered it.
