I saw it with my girlfriend's dad, we both came out of it thinking different main themes....I forget what his was though.Spoiler:I came out of the movie thinking about how Woody let people take advantage of him. He was far from a upstanding individual, but he was one of those guys that will spare his last dollar if you asked him for it. He end up being surrounded by those that will take your last dollar even if they have loads of it in the bank. That's probably not what Payne was going for, but I just got the impression that Woody led such a meager life because he was never assertive and just let people walk all over him in all aspects of life. In business, he was never able to succeed because people like his old partner will always screw him over. In family life, he let his wife just dictate everything to him and then blame him for all the shortcomings.

I know it came out a while ago, and may have been discussed already, but here's my opinion:Spoiler:i thought overall it was a very good movie, but it was very long. I think the same story could have been told in an hour less. It had a crapload of partying, hookers and cocaine. I get that they were trying to convey the message that they do that everyday/nonstop, but they got that point across quickly, they didn't need an hours worth of it to get that point across.
I'm curious as to if Donnie (Jonah Hill's character) was in with the fed and for how long. He obviously turned over the note about the wire. Thinking back, did he get Brad caught on purpose? Did he call the Swiss guy knowing the house was bugged? Did he help "Rugrat" get caught with the Swiss guy? I just walked away thinking he was a rat the whole time.
