But the weird thing was that I've never been to a film where so many people walked out, of the fifty or so people there, at least fifteen people left. They must have thought Bill Murrey => slapstick comedy or something, or perhaps there weren't enough explosions.
Yeah, well this may be a snobby thing to say, but I think you had to possess a modicum of intelligence to be able to appreciate this movie, and unfortunately many people don't or do but don't want to use it. I saw it in a university auditorium theater with all college kids, who certainly laughed hysterically and yelled things like they thought it was a slapstick comedy. Fortunately I had already seen it, or it would've been semi-ruined. It had a lot of very funny moments, but it didn't make me laugh out loud at all. I found the movie somewhat depressing, but not in a bad way. It also makes me want to go watch Rushmore again.
