This told a better story than the video game. Apart from some really bad eye-rolling moments (some *really* cheesy dialogue, WMDs), I really liked this movie. Jake was not bad, and Ben Kingsley always delivers. The use of political subtext was pretty clever and added a lot of flavor to the story (even with the WMD bit). And the parkour effects were done very well.
Not sure I get all the "Mad About You" love. I watched that show for awhile, but it started grating on me way before any kid was born (because I'm pretty sure I stopped watching way before that happened).
