Steve Carell shows us what a great actor he is and that he can do MUCH more than comedy. The character is very sad but understandable after having been nearly killed by a bunch of homophobic thugs. The movie was quite disturbing but, again understandable and, I believe, the point of the theme. Steve C. was really the only good actor in it but he carried it off beautifully.

Disappointing to the point that I couldn't finish watching. I wanted to find something redeemable about the film but found only the idea was good, execution however is fatally flawed.

Not at all what we were expecting. This is about a guy's bizarre coping mechanism of dolls and sets. Not a family film. It felt like we were watching an adult male play with barbies for his personal fetishes. :0

It had ALL the potential in the world to be a hit, and it was wasted.
This is one of those movies that "grows legs" and walks away from the director's control. And surprisingly enough, the director is Robert Zemeckis.
Problems with the writing and general treatment of the themes. Bad, stiff dialogue. At points, even the editing is slow... some pauses that should had been shorten. Too bad.

Great performance by Steve, but his character is extremely creepy. Would not recommend for anyone under 13 because of adult concepts. The description fails to mention that he is attacked for wearing womens clothing items.

A visually creative movie, with great performances and a fascinating story. A surprise like for me since the critics scored this one low.

This is a beautiful movie!
It is sad, violent and heart felt.
Also very disturbing and bloody at times.
The acting is amazing, Steve Carell is an excellent actor!
Once you watch it, you will love it!

Really felt the characters came through in this movie. I got it right off the bat. Truly a sad story about life in the good ol' USofA when someone gets beaten for what they do or think in their private life. I thought the acting was spot on.

This movie is more enjoyable and makes more sense if you read about the true life story of the guy depicted in the film first before watching it.
