    It's fun, and there's a lot of great dialog and moments in the film, but wow it did not hang together for me. I never believed in Melvyn Douglas' character, he seemed like he was playing the Best Friend in a movie where he's supposed to be the charming leading man.

He cites Schindler’s List as an example of a movie about significant enough a subject as to warrant a-3 hour movie. "But Fried Green Tomatoes?"

    Peter Jackson’s Return Of The King clocks in at three hours and twenty minutes and it’s too long. Which is not to say it’s…
