i just went to see American Carol. i highly recommend it for two reasons. it sends a message to those that made it and those in hollywood that the american public wants these kinds of films (so go see it THIS weekend.. opening weekends are very important) and its very funny - there are some real laugh out loud moments. a little slapstick, but not enough to put those off who don't care for slapstick (like me) and there were a number of moments that my eyes welled up with patriotic tears.
that is just my amateurish opinion.
