This movie is hilarious, and certainly the best use of Russell Brand-Perry I've ever experienced.
And of course, I loved Helen Mirren; she could do anything--even the title role.

You know,this movie is a lot better than I could have possibly expected it to be, with plenty of heart and laughs to accompany its action.
I could have done without the b*llsh*t theology, though.
What's good about it is that it makes me want to read the book; also, Matthew McConaughey has certainly been much worse.
What's not so good is that I was expecting this to be more focused on the fact that the lawyer operates from his car--that aspect was practically irrelevant to this entire movie.
The references to science fiction flicks come at the viewer fast & furious-- and I'm sure I missed half of them.
It's a fanboy comedy, to be certain, but I wouldn't consider it just for the fanboys.
