Really cool movie and definitely worth seeing, but goddamn... I can't help but be amazed by Christian Bale's insanity. The amount of weight he lost for this role was just absurd (especially considering how ripped he was in American Psycho, and now again in Batman Begins).

Just saw it last night. It was the funniest feel-good movie I've seen in years. My toddlers, Tucker and Dakota, giggled with delight at Trevor's wacky antics, and I nearly laughed myself into a hernia when they burst into the musical number..... good times, indeed.

This is a terribly old thread but I just saw the show for the first time a few days ago on HBO or whatever it was so... uh... yea....

I also couldn't believe how skinny Bale was in this movie. Much respect for the dedication and the movie was actually quite good. There were plenty of holes in the messed up story but, hell, I guess you can pretty much do what you want with a insane insomniac. Nearing the end I was wondering where this movie was going to go but I was happy with how it ended. Didn't really see it coming.

Pretty sure he didn't, 'cause he went right back to being ripped as fuck for batman begins. The guy definitely knows commitment.

How sick did you get?

I got pretty sick during that time! [laughs] But I enjoyed getting sick, I didn't mind it at all. So in that short amount of time, I did actually go from 121 right back up to 180, which is way too fast obviously. And that resulted in some doctors visits to get things sorted out

interview on radiofree.com !!!!!!!!

HA! That's not from being too skinny, that's from bulking up too fast.

Well it's hard to bulk up too fast if you're not skinny first.
