It made me want to start doing crosswords! Full of lively, interesting people--an excellent, entertaining documentary.
Hoo new? I never knew there was such a thing as crossword tournament. The movie was interesting and quite entertaining... as was the audience!
Very interesting movie!!!
I do the occassional crosswords while on the subway, but to dedicate 90 minutes to watching others get excited about it was not my ideal way to spend Sunday afternoon.
Great excitement, interesting cast of characters.
An interesting, intelligent movie. It also had an unexpected element of excitement - similar to that of Spellbound.
I really loved this movie !! The dialogue was interesting, I was constantly stimulated.
Loved it! The characters were so engaging. ALmost makes being a nerd a cool thing. It was really quite fascinating to learn what goes into creating a word puzzle. Thouroughly enjoying - it is bascially the crossword version of Spellbound.
I LOVED IT, I`M AN AVID CROSSWORD PUZZLER - NICE TO KNOW THERE ARE OTHERS LIKE ME OUT THERE.
Fresh, intelligent, and original. Love the interviews with celebrities. And the final showdown was breath-taking.
Enjoyable - down to earth - funny
I never was good at crossword puzzles, now I really feel dumb, It was interesting to see how good some people get, but a little scary to see the obsesiveness take over.
So, so, wait to rent this one.
Love the puzzles, liked the movie
It`s amazing how fast some of these crossworders are!
Another obsession one may have. Amazing how good and how fast some of these puzzlers are. Of course the more one does the better one gets.
I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY INTERESTING THANKS FOR A GREAT MOVIE!
i hated this movie movie WOW so boring. when it started. well i didn`t get to see the whole thing because i was too busy sleeping well there u have the most boring film u will ever see. A NOT MUST GO SEE RIGHT AWAY MOVIE. THANKS FOR NOTHING PEOPLE.
I, being obsessed with crossword puzzles, thoroughly enjoyed this documentary. It has given me the motivation to enter next year`s tournament & to take music lessons (the fiddle, imagine for a so called nerd). I will see it again, as I missed parts since I was absorbed in solving the puzzles.
Good for a documentary. To be seen once
It is a very insightful account of Will Shortz and his passion.It is a very good film that incites people to discover their real passion and,why not, along the way, discover true happiness doing what we love to do.
I haven`t seen it yet, but I know it will be great!!! I have been a long time fan of Will Shortz, and GAMES magazine. I appreciate the film likely speaks to a small audience or niche but it is so nice to see this sort of subject matter getting attention!!
An interesting hobby portrayal showing how fanatical some of these people are. Unbelieveable how fast people are at solving crossword puzzles.
