Fully prepared to see a completely sappy Matthew McConaughey movie, we were more than satisfied with our choice. It wasn't mawkish at all. It was a sophisticated story full twists and surprises like The Sting.
When we came out of the theatre, it was storming and raining cats and dogs. I'm not going to spoil my night by going downstairs to see how the basement fared. I'll look in the morning.
