The Informant

Extremely well done film and Damon is fantastic.

That said, it not a laugh your ass off movie, it is a chuckle movie that quickly becomes painfully uncomfortable. The fact that this is a true story and the guy whose story it is may be the single dumbest human being ever makes you almost wish for an end to the uncomfortable pain of watching.

Worth watching just because of how well the film is done (and it is done VERY well) and the story is worth hearing, but be prepared for some just painfully hard to watch self destruction.

I hear Matt Damon's character had some skeletons in his closet too. I'll see this for sure, but going to see Extract and Jennifer's Body first. Maybe knock 2 of them out friday.

I'm not going to ruin the movie (although it is SHOCKING more people do not know this story), but I'll say that there were many times I just wanted to yell seriously?!?!.

How was Joel McHale in this movie?

I saw him pushing it the last couple of weeks on the Soup and was curious how he was on the Big Screen

He was pretty good.

All of the acting was good to be honest. Well, except for Damon's wife (Rose from Two and a Half Men).
