People here seem to like the movie
I admit I've only read reviews by film critics, and they panned it. Film critics are constantly wrong though.

I'm much more excited for Philip K Dick's A Scanner Darkly
film that's coming out this summer. Man I'm keyed up for that one.
I am looking forward to it too. Although I think Keanu Reeves was a strange choice and I think this will be a very tough book to turn into a movie. Great book though and I'm hoping for the best. I would say that I'm a big Dick fan but I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea.
Also, the movie is in post-production but I was under the impression that it wasn't going to be released until 2006. Have you seen something that said otherwise?
The trailer here at Yahoo:
A Scanner Darkly
says the film is scheduled for a September 16th release this year. Guess I was a little off on the date. Keanu Reeves is an odd choice to play the confused protagonist, but you gotta admit that Linklater animation looks awesome, and the scramble suits look cool as heck too.
I admit I have a fairly serious Philip K Dick obsession, just as my username and location would imply. I've heard all the jokes- "You're a Dick-head, Gee you must love the Dick" and a bunch more as well.
I'd be interested in talking PKD sometime if you wanna Amazinz.
