To me, this film gave me the same feeling that Ocean's Twelve did, one where I got the feeling Wes Anderson's stable of actors were just going through the motions, and not bringing much to the table to produce interesting (to watch) characters. There are some chuckles here and there, but some of the 2nd half sequences are just so improbable that it does require the audience to accept it as a fish story (i.e. filled with hyperbole and exaggeration), and that just made the film stagnant for me. Go see it if you're curious, but don't have high expectations. I give it 2.5 stars, or a grade of C+.
