Water for Elephants

This movie actually succeeded in making me like the book less in retrospect.  It pointed out how corny and unbelievable the central story is, while lacking any of the plot and character development that drew me in.  I will give it credit for being visually pretty but that is about all.  The acting tended toward the wooden, with no real passion coming from most of the characters.  The exception was Christoph Waltz’s villain, who was so over-the-top as to be ridiculous and who had the most bizarre accent; I think it was supposed to be American but the German kept coming through.  Ugh.
