from Torn & Frayed's comments.....

The audience here obviously felt the subject matter was still a little risque judging by the oohs and aahs...and giggles as certain scenes were played out....

.I couldn't help thinking what a terrible and tragic relationship was being played out....granted the background it was played out against was spectacular...I'm not a camping sort of a lass...but that film has made me think I should give it another whirl...preferably with some good horses and some guy is handy with pitching tent...if he looks like Heath Ledger...then so much the better...

I actually came out the cinema wiping tears off my cheeks...haven't done that for a while...

I'm seeing this movie tomorrow with a girl friend of mine; I find it *really* hilarious how to of m guy friends have stated how they will absolutely NOT see this movie, not that there is anything wrong with being gay of course.

I was quite against watching the movie myself, but more because I thought I'd fall asleep! But the movie was really good. And we also noted the titters in the crowd during the 'scenes'.

I did fall asleep for a few minutes though.. that's what happens when you go for the 9 PM show of a thinking movie after drinks!
