The Tourist is rather empty and cosmetic. It's worth seeing if you're a superfan of Jolie or Depp, but don't expect to walk out of the theater with anything more than the stub you came in with.
Hollywood.com rated this film 1 1/2 stars.
That's pretty awful.

Just saw True Grit this afternoon; very good. I read the book years and funny thing was much of the dialogue came right back; the script must have been taken right out of the book. The girl who played Matty was great and Bridges nailed Rooster. I really enjoyed it and hope some of you do also.

I saw True Grit tonight. While a good movie, and I'm sure more true to the book, I was a little disappointed that I didn't get quite the emotional response that the John Wayne version brought out in me. I can't make a judgement as to which version is the "better" film, both are good in a different way. I'd certainly recommend it.

One question on True Grit. Did they add too much cursing, nudity or other socially unacceptable content? Is it 13 year old safe?

How's the swearing? There's extremely little in the book other than an s o b or two such as when Rooster is about to charge Ned Pepper, saying "fill your hand you s o b" and maybe one use of the unmarried parentage term. Any more than the book and I won't be able to show it in class.

Narnia author C.S. Lewis was a famous Christian appologist. His novel "Mere Christianity" is a favourite in Christian bookstores.

In making the original Wayne was very concerned with making the movie family friendly. I've seen No Country For Old Men and am less than confident the Cohen bros will concern themselves in the same way Wayne did. But I did try that simple Google search as suggested and it told me that the actress who played Mattie Ross established a swear job on set to help keep the on-set cursing down -- not really the info I'm looking for.

I'm thinking someone here who saw the movie should be able to make a pretty fair and easy comment on the subject and save me from having to sort through all that unwanted stuff that came up on that simple Google search.

But thanks for your input and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I don't recall any swearing. I think the PG13 is from the knife work with Ned's guys in the cabin; maybe the dead guy in the forest.

It's rated PG-13 for "some intense sequences of western violence including disturbing images".
I didn't notice any swearing except for the famous "fill your hand" line.

If you don't understand "Clockwork Orange" you need to watch Monty Python's "Search for the Holy Grail".

Had a Brit friend explain Clockwork was a satire on the English social system. It all made sense then!
