Invested €50 in it, so glad it snuck into the top ten. Wasn’t the greatest film ever made, but very refreshing slant on global politics (ie the Americans are complete and utter bastards). More of it.

Even when they’re lips werent moving. Mind you, why the hell was I paying attention to how well those girls were lip syncing?
