Bill is married to beautiful Elizabeth Banks, who is cheating. Bill is mentoring a kid who tries to get the couple back together again, and is hot for another young woman. So, it's a coming of age film. Nothing new here. In the end, Bill gets his revenge by walking away from Elizabeth rather than reconciling. Thus, marriage is not a good thing - another Hollywood staple. Ho hum.

the DVD is short April 11 2002
By P. Gribling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The DVD is not up to the same standards as the VHS tape. It is shorter and is only pan and scan. Usually movies for rental are P&S. Collectors of movies want widescreen and full length (at least what was seen on the big screen).I liked this movie but I am [not happy] that they would release a less that optimal version on DVD. The VHS version is only P&S but atleast the whole movie is there.

It's hard to beleive that Fox would do Pan and Scan! Nov. 8 2001
By Inspector Gadget - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What a disappointment it is to hear that this, a 2.35:1 film will be released as a pan and scan DVD. And by Fox of all studios. This is a cool Dolph movie that had a great atmosphere to it but you won't feel it in the cropped confines of 1.33:1. Why they would remaster it with a Dolby 5.1 soundtrack and not even bother to present it in it's OAR is beyond me.

Starts Good, Flops At The End Sept. 13 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Meet Bill is the story of Bill (played by Aaron Eckhart), a man who is quickly realizing that his wife, weight, job and life are all out of control. His wife is cheating, his stomach is growing, his job is pointless, and he wants more out of life than what he has.

During a random encounter, Bill meets high school student known only as The Kid (played by Logan Lerman), and it is here that the story takes off.

Meet Bill starts off with a bang. We are instantly pulled into the life of Bill, can sympathize with him, and want the best for him. The movie shows great potential for the first 45 minutes as we meet the other cast of characters in Bill's life. We can sympathize with Bill, and ultimately feel good about cheering him on.

But then, somewhere halfway through this film, it unravels. Scenes start to feel pointless. The story meanders, and feels like the writers knew where it would take off, but not how it should land. The pacing becomes a slow, dull crawl. And at the end of the movie, in the last five minutes,
Bill completely falls out of character and decides to shirk everything the movie has built up to, and become a wandering nomad.

The actors do an amazing job with what they are given to work with, and I cannot fault any of them. Each actor threads the film together with great depth. Unfortunately the script doesn't give them much to hold together.

And ultimately, I felt empty as the credits rolled.

stylish action May 22 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The beginning scene is strange, with Dolph exiting his street-level apartment with his "violin", as if he is about to go amble over to work , in some forgotten, quiet, mill town. The setting is strange..., a huge, modern skyscraper, again, in the middle of an unnaturally quiet city.
Summed up, the movie does not really make sense-yet I still enjoyed the action and sarcastic remarks. Dolph's war weary mercenary character seemed improbable ( why keep working for the "corporation", if you continually refuse to do the dirty work--do they have some unmentioned black mail on him? An explanation would have been nice ).
It is a dark movie and makes no apologies for that, right up to the ambiguous ending.
On an unfortunate note, if you are a fan of the movie ( I am ), then you will be disappointed by the lack of wide screen, and by the missing scenes. We could hope for a director's cut release, but the general lack of popularity of this movie might preclude that.

Really enjoyed it! June 23 2013
By afzwin - Published on Amazon.com
I liked the story line. Everyone can relate to feeling a little shmucky at times... and Aaron Eckhart plays it great. I really enjoyed the story line where he slowly starts regaining control of his life. Really enjoyed it.
