    ★★★★

    We've come a long way from "In & Out"...

    Good: Effortless in both comedy and drama. Heartwarming without being sickly sweet. Best screening I've attended while not being the target audience since Mean Girls. They laughed, cried, hollered and applauded kisses.

Perhaps nitpicky, but there are a lot of blatantly obvious continuity errors through out the movie.

This happens all through the movie.

    I am also intrigued that Michael…

    High octane Cage & suave Connery forming possibly worst haircut-duo ever. Classic unintended Bay-racism & big booms.
