Well, well, well, Jeff Bridges is at it again, with "OSCAR WINNING" actress Kim Basinger (betcha can't say THAT with a straight face -- hehe).  Anyhoo, Jeff Bridges is one of my favorite actors.  This trailer, for some uncanny reason, reminded me of the most random of films -- L.I.E., maybe a smattering of Lantana, Love and Death on Long Island (which I haven't even seen), or I don't know, all those potboiler type thrillers, marginal films that seem promising at the time, but don't do much more than linger in the back of your mind.  I guess it was something about the cinematography, mood, and subject matter, which the trailer was very careful to be vague about, which can only make one think that this movie isn't gonna be near as good as you've been led to believe.  Either way, though, I'm intrigued.  Anyone else?

And, side note, I find it quite odd IMDb calls it Door in the Floor, while if I recall correctly, the trailer I saw had "The" on the front.

I read the book a few years ago, called "Widow for One Year" by John Irving.  The book was very good.  The trailer I saw didn't seemed focused on what the book was mainly about, so we'll see how faithful the movie aims to be.  So far, not very, as they've already decided to rename it.

I'll see it.  Jeff Bridges is in it.

John Irving wrote the novel on which Door in the Floor is based, as well as A Prayer for Owen Meany, so it could be.

It's good to see another John Irving adaptation on the screen. There hasn't been one in a while.

i don't like how the title rhymes.....

the last film w/a rhyming title was the cat in the hat that i remeber..and it sucked so  don't expect much from a movie w/a rhyming title..........un.....less someone can think of one that actually was good......

Now you're talking!  Fucking ace, man.  I've got the first one in the HUGE old-timey oversized VHS box.

i am not a fan of the title, but it was a book so its forgiven. it looks like it could be good, but of course could also be bad.

it seems like the trailer is a bad representation of what could be a very good film
