This is really great. I can't wait to see what it draws at the end of the weekend but not just domestically but world wide.

The question is, is it good? I was telling my GF "let go see a movie...oh wait it will be crowded, nevermind"

I've heard nothing but good things about it. I'll be waiting till Monday afternoon to go see it.

Yeah we are going in the middle of the day next week too. If not we will go the week after, its one of the few books we remember reading lol

We're going to the 10am feature on Sunday morning. We figure not many people will be at that one so we'll be safe from the crowds.

Went to see it this morning and it was so good. It was as good if not better than expected. They did a good job making this movie considering that they had to try and keep the PG13 rating.

I'm going to see it again on Tuesday just to see if I missed something.

2012 is rocking the box-office so far.
