Boring and over-rated maudlin schmaltz. A one-trick pony. Saw it inflight on a NW AMS-IAD run, and justifiably glad I didn't pay to see it in a theater.

And I don't understand why Jennifer Connally won Best supporting Actress. All she did was look pretty.

I know I'm going to get flak for this, but I thought that Moulin Rouge was far more deserving of the Oscar for Best Picture.

I saw it PHL-LAS (I guess I'm not the only one to have seen it in-flight) & while it was a little weird to me, I enjoyed it. It was pretty entertaining. Russell Crowe did a good job. I'd recommend it to you.

I met Dr. Nash when I was visiting Princeton University last spring... Russell Crowe doesn't look anything like him =P

I watched it on my flight from DTW to KIX, it was a good movie. Wasn't Jennifer Connelly Dr. Nash's girlfriend/wife?

An excellent movie! Russell Crowe should've won the Oscar instead of Denzel Washington!

I'm pretty tepid about it. There were some strong acting performances, but the movie traveled along a weak script that panders to its audience.

Has anyone here read the autiobiography of John Nash? To say there are some discrepancies between the movie and book is understating the matter ... how convenient that Nash's affairs with men were edited out to sell a movie. There was other stuff about him travelling to Europe and renouncing his American citizenship that was also omitted.

It's not a *bad* movie ... it just doesn't bear much relation to the facts ...

Yeah friends, It is indeed a great movie.

I was in tears when Proff. Nash received his Nobel price and he gave the speach to his wife.

great great movie.

A Not-so Beautiful Mind

Tue Oct 22, 2002 4:42 am

Whether or not it relates to the facts is irrelevant. It's not like Titanic where they wanted to make a historically accurate film (and, for the record, did a fine job). With ...Beautiful Mind they wanted to make a good movie and base in on reality, not duplicate reality or make a documentary. There's nothing to dislike about it for not following the facts - I mean, who said it was supposed to???

By the way, I don't know who on Earth thought of the name for that movie, but that man hardly had a beautiful mind. If that's beauty, I damn well prefer ugliness. His "way with women" was to be frank and honest, stating the truth plainly, and obviously that kind of harshness worked for the realistic woman. Unfortunately, there's no virtue in it either, and no beauty. Beauty is in those who look for something beyond those, their most basic, desires, and can actually fall in love a little. As far as his intelligence goes... was it there?

I saw it inflight also, BUR-HNL. I could not believe IMHO how boring and dragged-out this movie was, kind of like the movie "Alive". It was just so repetitive and monotone.

It sucked, period. Maudlin, drab, boring movie about a miserable person. It also ranked right up there with "Pearl Harbor" for sanitized, "inoffensive" PC censoring of the facts. (such as his renouncement of citizenship etc etc.)

It reminded me of Enigma a lot, which I preferred actually.

This many posts and no one's mentioned Jennifer Connelly's breasts? Wow, a new record!
Personally, as much as the movie disappointed me, I was more disappointed in seeing that J.C. looked like she had gotten "Them" deflated. It was the saddest part of the whole movie! (only half serious, folks...)
