For people who stare at goats,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Men Who Stare At Goats [DVD]  (DVD)
OK, there's a humourous side to this, but you have to be a bit desperate to want to watch all of this. Jon Ronson's first publication, "Them", was a fascinating collection of insights into odd groups of people or individuals. His follow up book "The Men Who Stare at Goats" makes the mistake of being a whole book about a topic that's interesting only up to a point. Turning this into a 2 hour movie, with some alterations to the story to make it a "proper screenplay" is just abusing people's willingness to look favourably on anything that has big names attached. If you enjoy staring at goats, this is OK. If you need something a little more interesting, avoid this movie.
