Probably one of the 2 or 3 best movies I've ever seen—up until the last 15 minutes or so, which aren't bad, but get a little bit Hollywood-predictable. This flick does show that it's possible to combine art and entertainment. God bless writer-director Andrew Stanton.
I continue, like most people, to enjoy everything that Will Smith is in. I do, however think that this screenplay—at least the shooting script—wasn't thought out very well. All of a sudden the back story becomes the main story, and the fun-and-fireworks don't save the day.
