Needs a better director, Indulgent, Slow

See it if Act II has more drama to keep you awake (pouring wine all over yourself, gunshots when hunting, relationship drama & screaming).

Don't see it if But Act I is a huge bore & way too long. A comedy should be directed to have laughs, which aren't present. 2 hrs 35 minutes - needs big cuts

Entertaining

See it if you like plays based on a movie. The 2 1/2 hour play goes along nicely with good acting and an engaging story.

Don't see it if you don't like comedy/dramas about interpersonal relationships.
