Movie synopsis
Loosely adapted from a nonfiction book by Jon Ronson, Grant Heslov's directorial debut THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS begins as heartbroken reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) heads off to imbed himself with troops as the Iraq War starts, but Wilton can't get himself into the country until he chances upon Lyn Cassady (George Clooney). It turns out Lyn spent decades as part of the New Earth Army -- a platoon of men, led by Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), who lived a new-age lifestyle in an attempt to cultivate extrasensory perception that would allow the U.S. army to win wars nonviolently. Bill now has a secret mission in Iraq, and allows Bob to come along. As the duo gets into a series of misadventures, Lyn shares with Bob the colorful history of the New Earth Army and chronicles the nefarious machinations of Larry Hooper (Kevin Spacey), whose jealousy of Lyn's remarkable skill brought an end to the group.

Editorial reviews

4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hough Ronson's book and Heslov's film are hilarious, they both recognize the power of truth, and that's something to take with us out of the multiplex."
Box Office - Amy Nicholson (09/11/2009)

3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he script by Peter Straughan keeps the gags coming."
Total Film - Mark Salisbury (10/30/2009)

"Clooney's sincere line deliveries and crack screwball timing never fail to amuse." -- Grade: B-
A.V. Club - Noel Murray (11/05/2009)

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "All of the actors play without winks and spins....The movie is funny."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (11/04/2009)

"[A] likable, lightweight, absurdist comedy....Mr. Clooney has shed his cool cat skin to embrace his inner clown."
New York Times - Manohla Dargis (11/06/2009)

"[W]orth watching because it provides a showcase for a group of actors who really appreciate this kind of farcical comedy."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (11/06/2009)

"Based loosely on Jon Ronson's weirdly funny book of the same name, the film has some of the farcical appeal and subversive wit of DR. STRANGELOVE."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (11/05/2009)

"It benefits from the dense but pacey screenplay by Brit playwright Peter Straughan..."
Variety - Derek Elley (11/05/2009)

"Few cinematic pleasures are as sublime as George Clooney in full Clark Gable mode, as he is for much of the comedy THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS."
Washington Post (11/06/2009)

3 stars out of 4 -- "Just go with the comic flow, wrapped in striking light and shadow by wizard cinematographer Robert Elswit."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (11/12/2009)

Movie was not as great as the cast

Review For: The Men Who Stare at Goats (Blu-ray Disc, 2010, 2-Disc Set, Includes Digital Copy)

One would think that with the cast in this film: Ewan McGregor, George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Spacey, and Stephen Lang this film would be funny and very entertaining. However that is not exactly the case. It is somewhat entertaining in that you will watch the entire movie, but it lacks the laughs and enthusiasm that one would expect from the hype it received. I was a bit disappointed by that and by the lack of substance. The plot was very thin.

On their own, Bridges, McGregor, Clooney and Spacey are great actors and I would watch any movie any of them are in.

I would recommend renting this one so you are not out the entire cost of the movie.

Destined to Be a Cult Classic

Even as I watched this movie for the first time, I knew I had to add it to my collection. It is so off the wall, especially considering that some of it is true. George Clooney and Jeff Bridges in particular excel in this film. Steven Lang is hilarious. I wasn't sure that Ewan McGregor was cast well, but the constant Star Wars references made for a lot of good jokes. There isn't a strong plot, but this is true of many great movies. I think this film is much like Catch-22, consisting of a group of interesting people thrown together in weird circumstances. I am also reminded of The Darwin Awards, which throws the characters into increasingly crazy situations to see what happens. The special features contain an interview with the actual creator of the Real Earth Army.

Far out!

This is a movie about remote viewing and how psychic soldiers were first employed by the U.S. military and how the First Earth Battalion began.Highly recommended to those who are interested in the paranormal and how it's been exploited by governments and society.An excellent film that everybody should see!

Clooney & Goat

I'll buy anything Clooney, but I bought this DVD for the whole cast, including "Goat," who is credited as such on the cover. The movie is a clever and ironically nostalgic look back at the weirdest era in American history. Jeff Bridges is phenomenal, and Kevin Spacey ALWAYS delivers. Clooney is adorable in the long hair and silly as can be, more understated (better, to me) than in some of his other comedic roles, where he can get a bit over-the-top with the low brow humor. I'll watch it many times and laugh every time. Enjoy!
