It's hard to wrap your head around, because why is there a portal dug out of dirt in a high-rise building, it gets better after the first 20 minutes, Cameron's hair is such a fluff ball... Very quirky and quaky you need to have an open mind to watch this (I think they all get covered in brain matter too) Worth watching
strange movie concept ruined by some childish diversions.
Loved it. What a wonderful mind to think this one up.
Brilliant movie - quirky concept exploited with a light touch. Loved it - John Malkovich is awesome.
A very tight and clever movie, different to anything else. Cusak and Diaz never did much for me before but this shows they have real talent, but often wasted on hollywood schmaltz. 12 plus years on it still shows no sign of ageing and I think it will go on to be a cult classic. I prejudged this movie purely on it's title years ago because I thought it was going to be some self indulgent glory grab by Malkovich, how wrong I was.
A masterpiece of modern cinema, examining the role of the artist and puppeteer. Should be filed under cult.
Well your not going to forget this cracker when it goes off
and it does.
I did enjoy the bang.
Critics have always raved about this movie, and I must agree with them on this occasion. One of the most original movies that I have ever seen. It is bizarre, but at the same time you can completely comprehend what is occurring. Excellent movie and not to be missed.
Strange/ Different, this movie should not be placed under 'Comedy'
strange movie, couldn't figure it out and couldn't get in to it.
suprising because i had heard plenty of good reviews about this over the years by different people
Hard to know what to say about this one! Odd, the puppeteer thing was creepy, not my kind of comedy. In saying this John malkovich was great and the story line was very different. Thought provoking, probably wouldn't watch again anytime soon but glad i've seen it
I couldn't stand this movie when it was first released but I loved watching it this time around. So clever and quirky and a refreshing change from the typical narrative.
What a strange ride......just go with I suppose.
Was not funny just stupid
Very interesting movie. I was really intrigued by John M. dancing in the bedroom. He danced just like the puppet at the beginning of the movie, and very well too. Excellent acting by John C. and Cameron D. I found parts of it funny, and thought provoking. John M. was mixed up with Danny Devito as the jewel thief in Romancing the Stone. And could you imagine Charlie Sheen looking like that in his old age? I don't think so but you will have to watch the movie to see what I mean.
Different type of story line Worth a watch
Just watched this again for the first time in years. It hasn't palled at all. Quirky moving, funny, imaginative... pick a complimentary adjective. One of the joys of the film is that Jonze didn't feel the need to explain everything (James Cameron take note). Uniformly great performances - the first time I saw it was the first time I realised Diaz really can act. Worth another look if you haven't seen it since 1999.
I almost understood what was supposed to be going on, but never got a full handle on it: too many people being other people from time to time and place to place. Watch it if you like psychomagic and can handle confusion, but watch something else if you just want entertainment.
A storyline all of its own. At times like watching a living dream with more than a dose of weirdness in both the characters and their surrounds held together with enough emotion to make it dramatic.
A big tick.
An old favourite I'm always glad to revisit. Great dialogue, and a brilliant sense of the absurd. If you haven't been exposed to this one then put it on your list.
I just wonder if you wrote a script like this and the person who its about says no!
I'm so glad that John Malkovich accepted the role... Its an instant classic that has you laughing, confused, bewildered and just outright in shock.
I just couldn't stop laughing when Cameron Diaz wanted to be a lesbian! Just Gold this film!!!
Could not get into this at all I found this boring and Stupid
Tres bizarre but pretty hilarious!!
Inscrutable. Delightful. Funny. Odd.
Not much to say about this offering i felt like a muppet for even watching it, couldn't see why Cusick and Malkovich agreed to do it in the first place.
Stupid. Comedy without laughs.
This was a real suprise. Just a really different movie great imagination to put this story together / a bit wierd but compelling watching. Whole family rated this a classic.
This is one of my favourite films. A movie that you could watch over and over. A strange and wonderful story which both challenges and rewards its audience.
Another one that everyone loved and I loathed. I struggled to actually sit through this one. I have a more enjoyable trips to the dentist. I would definitely give this one a miss.
Watch this then 'Adaption", I wonder if the 7th & a half floor was ripped off idea from harry potter books, this is a cute & slightly odd ball film.
Weird, not for the kiddies!
Something different-thought provoking if you're a thinker, or just go along for the ride and enjoy the unexpected twists and turns and quirky dialogue
Enjoyable, quirky, oddball movie - right up my alley!
Very different but interesting, some great performances from the cast.
It's an interesting concept that has been made with a fairly low budget. Cameron Diaz looks very different. Enjoyable none the less.
This is really a very odd movie. Enjoyable all the same.
One of the strangest movies I've ever seen. Funny, quirky, completely unbelievable but worth watching all the same.
Worth seeing a couple of times to fully understand all the ideas presented in this strange and wonderful movie
This movie asks you to overcome some disbelief in the main topic and if you can do so, you are in for an interesting ride. Solid performances and moments of humour.
