Thumbs up Igby Goes Down

Amazing! Fantastic!

You will either love Igby Goes Down or want your money back. I absolutely loved it!

The acting was amazing. The director did a phenomenal job. Kieran Culkin, Ryan Phillippe and Susan Sarandon were fantastic. Claire Danes is back and in top form. Bill Pullman in a small but integral part gave the most incredible performance! Each and every actor was top notch! Stellar! Stellar! Stellar!

However, this movie is not for everyone. It does have its comedic moments, but I wouldn't have used the word comedy in its billing. I would bill it as a drama with dark comedic moments. That's probably not an acceptable category.<g>

For lack of a better description, "Igby Goes Down" is "The Catcher in the Rye" meets "Rushmore".

I thought this movie was amazing. If you like odd, off-the-wall characters, in odd, off-the-wall situations, then you'll be amazed too.
