This is hilarious. The movie is meant to be annoying and irritating. These are virtues?

Correct. I laughed through the whole thing!

I really really liked this movie. On the surface it's a sadistic meticulous suspense piece. But underneath there's an interesting commentary on violence and entertainment, so much so that I kind felt like a sick CINICAST!ard for laughing at parts of it.

It's easily one of the best of 2008 for me but I'm sure some people will just watch it on the surface and be repulsed.

And if you hated Funny Games you will loath Cache because it's even slower and vaguer

My friends and I laughed alot throughout, but for all the wrong reasons. The rewind scene was one of the funniest of the year, again for all the wrong reasons. Another hilariously idiotic scene was the HOT COLD COLDER scene. Pure garbage.

But Warm-Cold is a game. You laughed, so it was funny. The film is called Funny Games, what more could you want?

What aided the film was the strong performance from Pitt and Corbet, they were both delightfully twisted and the uneasy feeling they brought to their time on screen was particularly enjoyable and very respectable. I wasn't too hot on Roth though. M.H. accomplished, seemingly, exactly what he set out to do and I think Funny Games is one of the high points of 2008.

So true. But I think that where most of the people I saw it with decided to hate it. Could be wrong...

Just wanted to say that this is a pretty amusing thread.  I've seen the original but you guys have convinced me to watch the remake.

I don't know if it is the worst movie ever made.

Dare someone to do a triple feature of Funny Games, Showgirls, and Gigli and get back to this thread.
