    The Descendants with George Clooney

    We rented it and watched it last night. Did you see it, what did you think?

    It was not what I was expecting based on the trailers. That seems to be happening more and more these days, especially with movies that are billed as comedies but really aren't.

    I agree. I love George Clooney but I did not like this movie.

    I loved this movie. I thought it was very well done and thoughtful, and it's always good to see a real actor in a different kind of role for him or her.

    I saw it last week and wasn't really thrilled with it. Let's say I won't bother watching it again.

    I agree, I thought the movie was very thought provoking and worthwhile.

    My DH rented it this weekend & I plan to watch it later tonight. I'll keep you posted. I normally really like George Clooney so I have high hopes for this movie. Last week I watched (& really liked) "The Ides of March".

    After watching every movie I rented, I'm always glad that I didn't pay $10 to see it at the theater.

    I saw the movie when it was at the theatre, and I absolutely loved it. My husband liked it, too. I thought George Clooney played a very real person, with faults and problems like everyone else.

    I loved the movie and so did my husband and he never likes any movie. George Clooney was excellent in this role. Good to see him portraying a "real person". Just my opinion.

    I actually like the movie now more than when I watched it - if that makes any sense. I think I was just surprised at how serious it was, I wasn't expecting that. I do think George Clooney did a great job and I liked this different role for him. However, I was a little disturbed with the relationship between father and oldest child (together they're trying to find 'the other man'.) I just found that inappropriate for a father-teenage daughter relationship.

    I read the book, went and saw the movie in the theater, and then bought the DVD. I really like the story line and all the actors in it. The scenery was beautiful also. I'm not a big fan of George but I really liked his portrayal of this character and like others have said, he was more a "real person" in this film.

    My husband (who is a huge Clooney fan) really liked this but it just didn't do much for me. I preferred "Up In The Air". Just me...

    I was disappointed. I guess I expected much more from George Clooney.
