NOT the feel-good movie of the year .....

...... Slumdog Millionaire, that is.

I'm not really sure why I thought this was going to be a happy-go-lucky, song-and-dance movie. Maybe all those cute Indian kids at all the premieres.

Don't worry, I'm not going to reveal the ending, because I never made it that far. Actually, I didn't get much past the scene where the guy is being tortured by having a car battery wired to his toes.

Call me a wimp.

Yeah, I thought it was going to be sort of a Bollywood thing. It's so not.

I'm surprised by this description, so I guess I was misled by all those happy Indian kids too. I figured it would be sad at times but ultimately would have a happy ending. Well, I think I'd still like to see it.

Bollywood! That's what I thought it would be, exactly.

And it may have a happy ending, I just couldn't stick it out to wait for it. I guess I've got a low tolerance for torture. Let me know how it ends, kitkat!
