    Well ... she's all grown up in the next scene, but it does set the mood of the film.  Good comedy. :)

    I enjoyed it.

    I've never seen this movie.
    Sean Penn usually interests me, though.
    :)

    In these opening credits, is it the visual images? The song? The camera work? All of them? I just wondered if you had a specific reason/s that make/s these credits a favorite for you.
    :)

    You need to see it!!

    It's all of those that contribute to my love of the film, too. And the story and the acting is incredible, too. The character work is really amazing. Vince Vaughn and Hal Holbrook are really great.

    Thanks for answering.
    :)
    You've really got me intrigued. Yes, from the credits I had noticed Vaughn and Holbrook are in it -- I've always 'believed' them in whatever role I've seen them in. I like them.
    Don't share any plot spoilers, though, ha!
    :)
    I have so many I-want-to-see-them movies on my list. Geez.

    I liked the printing in the credits when it was shaped in the same angle as whatever was behind it.

    Put this at the top of your list! I really think you'll love it. And not just because Emile Hirsch is HOT! :)

    P.S. - He's also nude for a few seconds in the film. :)

    I had to look Hirsch up; I don't think I've seen him before -- yeah, he's a handsome guy!
    :)
    Yeah, I assume he'd look good nude, too.

    He reminds me a bit of River Phoenix. I think he's a great young actor. He was in "Milk" with Sean Penn, too. I first saw him in an unusual (but really good) film called 'The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys'.

    I've not seen "Milk" nor the Altar Boys one, either.
    He does sort of look like Phoenix. Unless you meant a similarity in spirit and energy.

    I meant looks, but maybe spirit/energy a bit, too. :)

    They both certainly have good looks.

    Wow, that is exciting!
    :)
    Have you by chance posted this opening scene before? I've not seen this movie but I know I've seen this opening before.
