'Take This Waltz' Review

Edward G. Robinson played gangsters, John Wayne played cowboys, Michelle Williams plays emotionally peripatetic women who break up with their husbands.
It's impossible not to do a compare and contrast between 'Take This Waltz' and 'Blue Valentine.' They elicit very similar emotions in the viewer and cover much of the same ground. Every spousal separation is unique, however, so rest assured the “getting there” is different enough to merit this new film which, while I can safely say I didn't enjoy, I recognize has some strong components.

I know that at the end of the day all you care about is the bottom line, but, as individuals, you are liberals.  That's just the way it is. But I guess the special red telephones got disconnected because things got out of hand this weekend. There are not one, not two, but three otherwise normal, liberal Hollywood movies from big studios that think nothing of a little homophobic humor. Consider that the release date comes not even a full week after Gay Pride, and I think we can call this a major disconnect.
