I actually really liked the cut and how focused it was on the main character. It seemed like even with all that was missing from the book the story was very understandable.
That said, I would definitely watch a longer version if it came out on Blu Ray.
Oh, anyone else stay for the credits?
There's no after-credits sequence but the fact that they used a brand-new Flaming Lips song made me very happy.
