I liked it. Not the ending, though...

Read that Clint said it's his last movie...

I enjoyed it too, I think it would be Clints last, he's starting to age a bit more than we expected or his make up gy did a heck of a job on him. I already have the DVD, )sssshhhh), this is Philadelphia so you can get what you want, perfect copy of it also.

I didn't like the ending either,won't blow it for the rest. The kid was great in it too, the barber shop scene was hilarious.

Yeah, I agree. I didn't like the ending at first but thought about it, it was perfect. If it would have happened the way everyone expected it to, it ouls have been "just another Clint movie"..
