kidman annoys me when she gets into this breathy delivery. wtf. i'm like shut up, *****. you're not jennifer tilly. i just wanna slap her. tom cruise is just weird although he's okay in most of his roles. that said, the film is kind of unbearable, something that one sees in installments because it just lurches to some pointless anti climax, with pointless anti conflicts and sporadic marital strife which can be kind of interesting, the bedroom scene was okay.
