    OK movie. Would have been much better without Oprah. She is not a movie actress. She may act well, but not in the movies.

    @Lisa What in the H does this movie being #1 have to do with your silly message. This system was initiated when BUSH was in office and I am pretty sure that he knows that he can be listened to but if you do not have anything to hide you shouldn’t be worried also if system is catching terrorist it doesn’t bother me, because I live a clean life and I am not doing anything wrong. people need to stop putting all there business out there electronically anyway.

    Sounds like a good movie, and I really like Forest Whitaker. Wish he was in more movies as he is a good actor.
