The Informant!

Was never sure exactly what was happening. It is essentially in the form of a documentary, ruled by dialog and Matt Damon’s voice-overs. Matt is a very convincing character actor. Never sure whether to laugh at him or with him. Polite or awkward chuckles much more often than laugh-out-loud moments. Thick irony, someone being so intelligent and so clueless at once. He seems to honestly believe he is a hero in a movie, like Tom Cruise in “The Firm”; playing at being such a character is discordant with real life.

I imagine this will be more funny the second time than the first, if I ever get around to watching it again. But in my opinion, it was a dud as a date movie.
