One thing is consistent about this film--a film which I have yet to see.  Every review I've read has emphasized the same thing: it's inconsistencies.  Certain things work really well...and other parts don't work at all.  That's too bad.

Surprisingly, my wife doesn't want to go anywhere near this...and she generally likes to see adaptations of popular modern novels into movies (as long as they're not "blow 'em up" action flicks).

Thanks, Neil. 

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

What's up with your question? What do mean? What are you referring to, specifically?

I disabled my center channel due to a cone tear, and The Lovely Bones sound design forces 99% of the dialog into the center only, which is absent in phantom mode. I thought the movie was made like that, and everyone missed it, lol. I've had no problems with other movies being split between the left and right channels. Ideas?
