One Sentence: It felt like a bad Coen Brothers movie.
Quarky characters, an odd story, an attempted message and George Clooney. Today when I looked on IMDB I was surprised to see The Men Who Stare At Goats was not directed or written by The Coen Brothers. Everything that happened in this movie felt just like one of their movies, except that most Coen Brothers movies are good, and I really didn't like The Men Who Stares At Goats.
I think this movie was intended to be funny, while delivering a world message to the audience. Instead it was slow, lacking anything interesting, and had a couple of funny jokes involving Star Wars references. You do not care about these guys and their supposed true story about the army's secret psychic program. When you open a movie with how unbelievable the story is it is based on, then you expect the movie to be at least interesting, and instead it was just a boring hour and a half story, that wasn't hard to believe or even slightly interesting.
I am not going to recommend this movie at all, anything that you think looks good in this movie you have already seen in the endless promotion that has been going on all over the tv. I don't even think it is a renter. You can be fine just never seeing it and you can never look back about how you missed a good movie, because it is just not very good.
