A touching love story -

Garbage. Acting is sub-par. Travolta is embarrassing. Scarlett Johansson, who I think is a great actress couldn't save this poor excuse for a film.

Worth seeing - perhaps seeing twice. Story about "losers" whose humanity makes them all "winners." Story, set in New Orleans, has some surprises. Excellent cast. Great music.

Colorful story and very interesting.

New Orleans looks uniquely beautiful. Very well made.

I will admit, I'm a bit of a movie snob, but I adored this movie. Scarlett Johansen is an excellent actor even before she hit the spotlight, and she captures the role perfectly. John Travolta is amazing as Bobby Long and Gabriel Macht is adorable not to mention a brilliant actor.
The plot is touching, and meaningful, the cinematography and music are captivating, as is New Orleans(where all of the movie is based). I would definetly recommend this movie. :)
