    Didn't see it in the Theatre, will catch it on cable. Probably crap, tbh.

    Never read the book, not interested in the movie.

    For such a well read, classic book though, it deserved a bigger cast and a better treatment. Don't tell me the politics of Hollywood had nothing to do with that.

    I think the miniscule budget had something to do with the bad cast. AKA Capitalism

    You arenít saying that there are no republicans in Hollywood are you?

    There are, but you can probably count the best known ones on one hand:

    Clint Eastwood
    Tom Selleck
    Kelsey Grammar
    Patricia Heaton


    ..... uhhh.... that's it.

    Eastwood and Selleck always get a pass because they are badass. Every big shot producer, though, was pretty much a major donor in the Obama '08 campaign.

    A minuscule budget can be rectified by a producer and a big studio pumping cash into it. Do you think a big studio led by a liberal dem wants to make a movie based on a book that has been coveted by tea partiers as their de facto Bible? I don't.

    Here we go again! Hollywood wants to make money period. You think there will be a big budget occupy Wall Street film coming to a theatre soon? Um no.

    free market no? If there was a large desire for a high budget "Atlas Shrugged" film I would think it would have been made? Unless Liberal Hollywood money is more powerful that conservative corporate money.
