I read "Water for Elephants" two years ago when my mother had her first knee surgery, so I didn't really have the time or interest to write a review (I'm Terrible at writing reviews anyway). At the time I just wrote (here: http://irenethebean.blogspot.com/2009/09/ride-home-and-week-prior.html) that I didn't like it.
The movie looks pretty horrible to me, too. Can Robert Pattinson or Reese Witherspoon act? Here's one movie I'm glad I'll be missing.
