Has anyone seen Gone Girl? *Caution-Spoilers*

I really wanted to see this movie, I thought the book was fantastic. I was curious how well it translated on the big screen.

Saw it yesterday morning. They did a very good job. The book, of course, has much more detail and back story of why she was like she was. They changed some things a bit but overall a good job. 2.5 hours went by really quick.

I just got back from seeing it and loved it. I was afraid that they would change or leave out really key parts of the book, but I think they did a great job.

2,5 hours???? Wow..that's pretty long. I don't know if I can sit still that long I was also thinking about seeing Annabelle. I love me a creepy good horror movie

I saw GG today and really liked it. It's pretty faithful to the book and well acted. Great movie!

I read some reviews and would like to see it. I didn't read the book. How did you guys like the casting?

I thought the book was OK, but for some reason I am completely excited to see the movie. I think the trailers make it look very intriguing. Hopefully I will see it today.

I have not read the book. I know the movie is rated "R". Is that for violence? I can take bad language and adult content, but I hate violence.

I didn't care for the book - at all. I figured out the twist ahead of time and the characters (I think) were just such awful people.

That said - I really enjoyed the movie!

I thought the book was "eh". But, my entire department read it, and so we had a department outing on Friday to see it. I thought the movie was better than the book! Loved Ben and NPH, and the woman who played Go. I did not care for the woman who played Amy, though. Her face bugged me, ha ha!

It was a long movie, but did not feel like it...it moved quickly.

Recommended.

Yes, there is some graphic violence in it. But, in return, you get to see NPH and BA's bootys

We saw the movie last night and loved it. I loved the book too and actually thought it stayed pretty true to it.
As far as the R rating- lots of bad language, pretty graphic love scenes. There is one really graphic violent scene. This stuff doesn't bother me but I just wanted to explain since you asked.
I love Ben as Nick. I think Rosamund did a great job as Amy but there was something that I didn't care for with her. But it was my personal hang up. The voice over reminded me of the desperate Housewives voice over. A little sing songy.

Thanks for letting me know about the graphic violence. I am not a fan.
