The Men Who Stare at Goats
2009
Journalist Bob Wilton latches onto an unbelievable story in Iraq when he meets Lyn Cassady, a man of mysterious origins who reveals he was a "warrior monk" trained by the U.S. Army to develop psychic powers.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This offbeat comedy sends up military "intelligence" and New Age quackery with uneven success. It has a terrific cast and crack timing, but its weakness is an anticlimactic ending. The whole movie feels like a big buildup to a punchline that never comes.

Amy Austin: Srsly?

How have I never heard of this one?!?!? With a title that already cracks me up. − November 7, 2009 • more by Amy

Erik Bates: My ultra-short summary/review of the film:

1 hour and 40 minutes of Jedi jokes that are only funny because Ewan McGregor is one of the stars of the film. − November 11, 2009 • more by Erik
