I went with The Kids Are All Right. It was among my 10 best films of the year but it's (barely) my least favourite of the 5 nominees that I've seen.

I also picked The Kids Are All Right, though it's tough because I gave each of the nominated films a B or higher. Behind The Kids Are All Right is The Fighter.

Book another one for The Kids Are Alright because, like those kids, that movie was just alright. It's standard movie of the week stuff except, you know, with lesbians.

This would have been funny if the picture was actually titled The Kids Are Alright!

Well, that's embarrassing. I deserve to be called out for that. I must have been to eager to get my play on words out. Or, I'm just an idiot.

Still, that movie wasn't very good. The sentiment stands. Of course, who respects the opinion of someone who can't get the movie title right? That guy's probably a moron.

Half the forum gets it wrong, myself included. I was actually shocked when I noticed the real spelling some time ago.

I'm a movie title snob. I always correct my wife when she adds a "the" or "a" in front of a title that doesn't warrant one. She thinks this is decidedly unfair because her native language doesn't feature articles. I think she's probably right. Meh.

My vote was for The Fighter--nothing interesting or "Best" about it at all.

I going with The Fighter on this one. It was a solid flick and it featured some Oscar-worthy acting but the movie itself wasn't anything truly special. Most people are casting votes for The Kids Are All Right and I'm not surprised by that but I was personally drawn in by that particular film more than most. I guess I'm just a sucker for a well-made film about families and relationships.
