The Men Who Stare At Goats

Last weekend Andy and I watched this movie on a lazy Sunday morning after dropping mom off at the airport.  The Men Who Stare At Goats is hysterical, witty, and ridiculous.  The men in it are also quite good looking.  In fact I wouldn’t mind being The Woman Who Stares At The Men Who Stare At Goats.  Okay that was a bad one, but seriously, George Clooney and Ewan McGregor – you can understand.

Ewan McGregor plays a heart-broken reporter, Bob Wilton, from Ann Arbor, Michigan trying to prove his worth to his wife, the world, and himself.  He stumbles upon Lynn Cassidy, a “former” soldier and member of the New Earth Army.  Cassidy takes Wilton under his wing and introduces him to a world of secret psychic militarism and paranormal peace-making.  Jeff Bridges plays the legendary Bill Django, founder of the New Earth Army and flower child.  Kevin Spacey is the good guy/bad guy, Larry Hooper, who will stop at nothing to make a name for himself.

Hilarity ensues on their misadventures, and if you’re not left with stitches in your stomach and philosophical thoughts about life and war, you weren’t watching the right movie. 

Rent it.  Netflix it.  Watch it.  Love it.
