Now, here's a movie that I don't think I "got."

I read the book and I have to say that the characters and the science that Crichton put in there was expertly sucked out for the purposed of the film. It moved like a constant stream of punchlines... one after another... people talking and talking at one another, discovering clues that might have well been tossed in from another movie's plot.

I'm thinking I'll get the thing when it comes out on DVD -- next week -- and add a laugh track to the thing. That should frame the whole picture better.
