Funny, the only reason I saw it was for Matt Damon. The fracking plot didn't interest me that much, but I expected it to be more dramatic. It wasn't. It could have been a lot better. Damon helped write the script, so I expected it to be sharper, funnier. The final speech he does in the gym is pretty lame.

I can barely abide watching Rosemarie DeWitt, and when I saw her appear at the bar as the potential love interest, I nearly shut off the movie. Uggh. Couldn't stand her in Mad Men, loathed her in United States of Tara and cringe when I see her accidentally in some movie. I have no idea why she has an acting job. Aaack. We will have to disagree here.

On the other hand, I always enjoy McDormand, and Damon & she had a great connection, as you mention.

It's just an Ok movie, because it could have been SO MUCH better.
