Ive never been a big fan of the book. Though Leonardo Dicaprio is a pretty awesome actor so it might be good.

I'm glad I am not the only one who didn't care for the book. Dicaprio should make it watchable though.

To me the book was great. I mean the theme to me was probably one of the strongest things I have taken away from any book ever. With Leo in the movie you know its gonna be at least decent dude can act his ass off ahah. Looking forward to it, def will be better than the one that had Paul Rudd in it .

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Leo is criminally underrated even in his youth. People always site the beach or titanic but fail to realize that those were poor scripts

What's eating Gilbert grape was a fantastic performance.

Always love Leo movies. One of the true leading men left.

Baz Luhrman turns a great novel and classic story into a far too hyperactive, over-saturated "big" movie. No thanks.

And Leonardo DiCaprio is incredibly talented. But, because he's good looking people put aside his talent discounting him (and many other men and women like him) simply because of this looks. Double-edged sword in entertainment sometimes.
