MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Men Who Stare at Goats
is a great psychological comedy. It starts out well and holds its own throughout the movie partially because of the great casting combination of Ewan McGregor and George Clooney. Jeff Bridges is a perfect pick for the revisionist who tries to introduce new ways of fighting (i.e., non-lethal rather than with force and weaponry). The storyline is based on a true story. While rated R, it could have been PG-13.
