We saw the movie on preview tickets last week. We weren't bored. We've been to Australia and it was great to see the Outback again, even if on screen. Ignore the movie critics review and just enjoy the cinematography with nice story line, with a bit of history mixed in.

She was cast in the leading role initially, but then Nicole Kidman was chosen over her. arti then decided to take a smaller role in the movie, but ended up being hotter than Kidman so it's easy to get distracted by arti's beauty. Thus, she ruins the plot of the movie...

Yeah, Hugh Jackman said he'd probably lose it during the love scenes with Arti so they went with Nicole instead.

Arti's guads were too strong for Luhrman to deal with.

On another note, I had to stop reading that CNN review 1/3 of the way in! It seems to be nothing more than a rant/spoiler!
