Men Who Stare at Goats

I actually got a kick out of this flick. Usually I’m suspect whenever there is an overabundance of stars packed into a film, especially such heavyweights as Jeff Bridges, George Clooney, Kevin Spacey and Ewan McGregor. But this, while not outrageously funny or great, was still a very solid flick. I like the way it walked the line between ludicrous and serious. You really wanted to believe in Clooney’s character and McGregor played the willing diciple very well. Certainly not an oscar contender, but I enjoyed it. I almost wish it had delved deeper into the ironies that military intelligence (oxymoron corps) can provide.
