I enjoyed it. The story isn't the most original thing ever made but the performances are really strong. Plus it's got one of the hottest sex scenes of the year.

So this is finally the film where we see Amanda Seyfried naked, yes?

Would explain Ebert's rating, the old horndog. Bet if this one was in 3D he wouldn't complain

Noticed that this is only playing on 306 screens this weekend, so baring the movie exploding at the box office, i doubt its theater count will rise any higher then that

She's naked in Alpha Dog

Besides she looks like a bitch and probably is one.

[pointless gossip] Isn't this the movie Liam was shooting when Natasha had her fatal accident?

I submitted a review at around 7pm today, but I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow.

I know inquiring minds want to know, so I'll let you guys know that Amanda Seyfried gives heaps of side-boob throughout the movie, but you only see one actual nipple, Titanic style.

This was indeed the movie Liam was shooting when Natasha had her tragic accident, but still came back and finished his performance anyway. I don't think his acting was noticeably affected, but I think there might have been more of him in the overall movie had noting happened.

Amber Heard shows some skin in that scene, though, so maybe Idioteque...'s memory of the scene is fuzzy.

Didn't Seyfried show her tits as well? A majority of the actresses in that movie got naked lol.

Might be because it's a remake of Nathalie?

I don't know if we saw the same movie, but the film I saw a couple weeks ago had way more than just "one actual nipple." There is a scene where she walks across the frame topless, and during the Julianne Moore sex scene. I'm sure there were others as well.

I know that. My comment refers to the general plot as it relates to other films. But it's original enough (both the remake and the movie it's based on) to make it a pretty good suspense film.

FWIW.



I am in no hurry to see it. Honestly, Egoyan created one of the greatest films in the history of cinema (that being The Sweet Hereafter) and I have been pretty underwhelmed by everything else he has done that I have seen (which admittedly is hardly everything).

Re: Chloe 3/26/10 ltd D:Egoyan; Moore, Seyfried, Neeson

well i just got back from it. Yes, Amanda does show boob (front and side), and ass. I guess the complaint is that once the so called 'twist' is revealed, i wanted to say 'i saw it coming', it was prob more obvious if you were to see it a second time.

Also in regards to the
Spoiler:
lesbian scene w/Moore and Seyfried, yes it was very hot and quite graphic as well as there was some fingering down there.
Actually, should i really put that in tags, as the trailer does heavily imply what the spoiler mentions

Maybe my print was just dark. But when Moore opens her shirt, I only saw one nipple, and she kept them covered up with her arms and things the rest of the time.

Here's that review: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/42867/chloe/

Orndorf, Jamie S. Rich and Jason Bailey didn't like it either, for basically the same reasons:

Amanda Seyfried is now my favorite actress! When did she turn so hot?

Very good movie!

Spoiler question:
Spoiler:
What was up with Chloe's cough through out the film? I was so sure that she had AIDS and was going to give Julian Moore or her son AIDS as the twist

she always has been (at least since Mean Girls/Veronica Mars

In regards to the spoiler
Spoiler:
Didn't she her the test results.

And to me the big twist is the final shot of Moore's character wearing Chloe's hair piece

Have you seen Exotica? I consider that a close 2nd to The Sweet Hereafter.

It's a very good film, I totally agree, but I think The Sweet Hereafter is a masterpiece and Exotica wouldn't be as close as you think it is.

Yes. I sought it out with great enthusiasm not long after seeing TSH. I honestly didn't care much for it.

I can't believe I'm almost tempted to rent Mamma Mia and Dear John now just to see more of Amanda Seyfried...She certainly was the best thing about Jennifer's Body...

According to her imdb plans, she's just gonna do some more romantic-comedies and some period pieces. What she really needs is her own action movie. She's like a hotter, upgraded version of Scarlett Johansson. Any movie that I think of that has Scarlet Johhanson (Iron Man 2, The Island), I picture Amanda Seyfried doing that same role and better.

She's definitely the hottest American blond actress. When I think of blond American actresses, I just think of skinny-assed, flat-chested ones...
