I finally tried to watch it this week. Didn't finish it. There were some chuckles, but I don't get the hype.

I thought it sucked the first time I saw it too. Give it another shot at some point in the futute.

I thought the same thing. I've never tried watching it again.

Pretty much the funniest movie ever.....John Goodman not winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor that year was a total travesty.

I've tried to "get" Lebowski and Napoleon Dynamite. Just can't.

With a record of 109-23 and 6 Big 12 titles in 10 seasons, Stoops has reason to be arrogant. But he is not. He is somewhere between humble and unimpressed.

It's one of those movies you are suppose to say is great even though you actually know it sucks.

It's like eating at Matt's El Rancho, or El Patio.

This thread reminds me of Benson asking Kevin why he should like Arcade Fire after the latter won a Grammy.

I don't know that there's much to "get." Like Kevin, the first time I saw it I didn't think it was the end-all, be-all of comedy, but it just kind of planted itself in my brain and as I would hear people talk about it or quote one of the many, many quotable lines, I would think "maybe that was better than I thought."

Now I've seen it in full about 20 times, and in part upward of 100. It's one of those movies where if it's on, I'm going to watch for at least a few minutes (and it's on HBO at some point almost daily, it seems).

The second half does drag, IMO. But the first 30-45 minutes are nothing short of genius. The dialogue is amazing - Sorkin-esque.
