My wife and I saw it Saturday night and we LOVED IT ! The scenes with "Toad" in the barber shop and construction trailer were absolutely friggin hilarious.

Great Movie !!!!

Yep...but what a way to go out. With your highest grossing movie ever. 130 million last time I checked. Must be that '72 Gran Torino.

I wonder? After all he is a "fair to middlin" director too. Being his last movie, may not mean he is completely out of the Movie business. The way the story is told, he has a knack for bringing his movies in on time, on budget - with little or no drama from his stars or co-stars.

I doubt if the studios will just let him walk away. There are some folks that are "old" at 40 or 50. People like Clint don't so much get old - they are fully functioning until the day they die ... shot by an angry husband.
