Of all the complaints to have with a movie, "the black woman wasn't fat enough" has to be one of the silliest I've ever heard.

Anyway, I didn't think it was awful (certainly not as bad as the Tomatometer would have you believe), but more ... aggressively mediocre. It has significant pacing issues (the middle act draaaaaaaaaaaags) and Blake Lively was unbearable (which is odd, as she was excellent in The Town), but it's not terrible.

I guess I can sum up my main problem thusly: "Oh, there's another problem I need to deal with? Well, first, I'll need to take off this power ring..."
