See Fraser in Gods and Monsters. Played a big dumb hunky guy, but with feeling.

Everyone had reviewed it a few months ago, more or less giving it the thumbs up. I was real interested in seeing it and am surprised, with all the press, that its not playing right now.

Harumph.

It is a good movie. Michael Caine is absolutely perfect for the role, the cynical been-there-done that reporter. Brendan Fraser, after all his stupid mummy films, put his erneastedess (is there such a word?)to good work. I don't know how he got the role, but he deserves it.

A movie to enjoy from beginning to end.

It was one of the movies that was delayed release after Sept. 11th (tho Collateral Damage somehow still made it out that year) ... it had limited release here in November, and was scheduled for expanded release but I don't see that that has happened. Must search more.

Too bad, it got some good reviews.

I've just saw this movie, and someone mentioned that it won't be shown in the USA. Is it true?
