I found myself laughing when I shouldn't have been.
To put it succinctly, In Bruges was the best film that I saw in 2007. I
loved every minute of it, from the expletives in the opening scene to
the shockingly crazy ending. Colin Farrell plays a hit-man recruited by
Brendan Gleeson to work for Ralph Fiennes. When Farrell botches his
