This movie was fantastic. Humoruous, well acted, well directed, well choreographed and well everything else. Most enjoyable movie experience I had all year and I recommend it for everyone from 8 to 98. True to the period, it is set in 1929 at the start of the depression and chronicals the fate of a silent star who is dumped in favor of the talkies. Very funny stuff. At the very end of the movie though, is a big surprise (if you're over 50). Watch the last move he makes and listen closely to his voice as he says the only line he has in the entire movie. It's classic.
