Been wanting to see this for awhile. It was not what I expected at all, I was disappointed. I guess its worth a one time watch if you like weird movies.

This movie seemed like it was trying too hard to be deep and poetic; it failed superbly. The story was disjointed and far too slow. One good thing was the acting, brilliant as always from Keven Spacey, I'll never get tired of watching him work. Overall, I'd give this movie a 2/5. Not really worth the time, unless you want to watch to say you watched.

This movie was very strange. I liked the use of colour, lighting, and cinematography. Not my kind of movie per se, but it was ok. 5/10

Great film, it blends funny and dramatic perfectly. The acting was amazing, I was captured by the story from beginning to end. I liked that it had multiple themes with the characters and how everything came together. The title makes sense, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. All the characters went for love no matter how wrong it seemed and I found myself rooting for them.

I'm a 22 year old guy and I went into this thinking it was going to be a chick flick but I was pleasantly surprised. Great movie, very unique and original with a surprise ending. A little funny at times too, which makes it even better. 4/5

It's different but it's good. I really like this one. And Kevin Spacey is such an amazing actor.

It had some really slow moments, and lots of weird moments, but overall it was pretty decent. Well worth a one time watch.

absolutely one of my favorite movies. yes it's odd in the way it plays out but the humor from Spacey is over the top

Worth a watch, could have been more done to the plot. Small attempt to yet failing to be dark humor. 7/10

Comment by moviegeek77 is hidden because it exceeded your tolerance threshold. ( ? ) [ Show/Hide Comment ]

to everyone confused about the film: It is about a man dissatisfied with his life, he decides to change it. He becomes a new person and is happy. It has multiple themes. Beauty is more than just how a person looks. Its all based on perspective. the reason a lot of people didn't like it is because its plot wasnt strong, but it was more of a character study. Each character is deep with multiple levels. The blond girl has the fear of being boring so she creates a persona where she is a slut and bangs every guy she sees even though she is seen as a slut at least she is noticed, and not boring. Ricky is a rebel, while though creepy has a deeper apreciation for true beauty. He sees beauty in the smallest things in life. He is less superficial. it is through him that Lester trys to be less superficial. Rickys father is a closeted homosexual, which is why he takes out all of his anger on other homosexuals because he is afraid that he will become attracted to them and be seen as less of a man because of the way he was raised. I could write a paper on this and eventually I probably will, but yea. Multiple levels. You just have to think about it.

Not boring but very predictable. All the characters are stereotyped and the course of the story is really simple. It's like it's looking for people to be able to identify with at least one of the characters in their own miserable lives. I guess I expected something with an unexpected turn, or at least a little more surprising. 5/10.
