Not a comedy, but has funny moments.
Show is based on absurdities. Probably some truth to it, though, because the US military did carry out ambitious thought experiments, during Cold War.
Movie is a humourous take on PSY-OPS during the Reagan era of the cold war and in this movie during the Iranian conflict. Clooney is a "Jedi Knight" of the PSY OPs program with all kinds of BS about his skills. Kevin Spacey is like the Darth with his jealousy of Clooney's talents.
"More of it is true than you would believe"
This film does not really fall into any standard genre. It may have a message or two but you have to look for them. There are a few sight gages (one includes clouds). The stereotypical hippy is actually fun when you think back on the real thing. The war scenes are more realistic than in the film "Hurt Locker".
Beware the Blu-ray has all those nasty coming attractions that get old quickly. The DVD extras are worth a scan. You will have to look under audio setup to find the commentary with Director Grant Heslov or Author Jon Ronson.
The Men Who Stare at Goats
This movie will make you laugh. But more so, it will make you think. And ultimately, be forever stuck in your head!
Ewan McGregor is Daily Telegram reporter Bob Wilton, whose life suddenly begins to collapses when his wife leaves him for his editor. In his own words he does what most men do when a women break there heart, he goes to war.
A wannabe war corresponded; Bob hopes that in hunting for adventure he can prove to his lost love that he is not weak. In Iraq Bob meets Retired Special Forces operator, Lyn Cassady; played as the ever charming and crafty George Clooney. Cassady refers to himself as a Jedi warrior, a military trained super soldier, fighting with his mind.
As they journey into the desert together, Lyn reveals the story of his training by the New Earth Army; at the height of the cold war the pentagon catches wind of a Soviet psychic soldier program, unwilling to accept a psychological warfare gap, they begin their own program.
Newly Oscar winning Jeff Bridges brilliantly stars as Bill Django commander of the New Earth Army. Bill embraces the hippy movement in his personal quest for a peaceful warrior. He uses mental projection, positive thought, eastern meditation techniques, and yes even the occasional psychotropic drug to create a new form of warrior, a super soldier with the power of mind over matter.
The new age soldier movement attempts, with varying degrees of success, to train men to walk through walls, overcome there enemies with mental projections, and even kill goats with a stare.
An expectantly well rounded and talented cast saturates the film; Kevin spacy plays Larry Hooper the films primary antagonist; a vindictive psychic trainee.Read more ›

One of the worst, most boring, non-funny, poorly written comedies I have ever seen. I don't understand how 4 otherwise great actors accepted their roles in such a bad movie.Published 2 months ago by Tony Auth
