As it turned out, Juliette and I had very different opinions about this one. Coming out of the film, we gave each other our impressions as we always do. I said that I thought that the first five minutes were kind of boring, and that I thought Renée Zellweger was miscast. She was quite surprised, because she thought this was one of Zellweger's best performances. However, despite our differences on the chemistry between the two leads, we both agreed that it was a good story and that Russell Crowe and Paul Giamatti did excellent work as Jim Braddock and Joe Gould.
