Yeah, I've started liking Gyllenhaal a lot more lately, thanks to things like Zodiac, so maybe I'd enjoy the film more now. Foxx isn't a bad actor, but something about him has just always bothered me...and I'm still kind of upset that he won that Oscar.
Paul Newman was great and I really enjoyed seeing Hanks play a role like that. It was just a beautiful looking film as well.
Liked a lot of performances that year better, which isn't to say his was bad, but off the top of my head I liked Deep in Finding Neverland better, Cheadle in Hotel Rwanda, and Dicaprio in Aviator.
