An entertaining documentary on PED culture in the United States over the past 50 years, particularly in the area of athletics. It gets outside the steroid paranoia caused by the media, and really delves into some issues that aren't very well known.
It has a 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and now I see why.

The Love Guru- 6/10 Lot's of random funny lines. which I like.
If you played the games you would understand. But for the average viewer it is kinda out there.

But I enjoyed it.
They need to try to appeal to the non-video game crowd though if they want to have any success. Personally, I don't think many video game to movie projects can have much success because of how different the stories need to be for each kind of medium. The only video game that I'm interested in seeing how the movie adaptation turns out is Bioshock.
I'm a huge Cohen Bros fan. Love all of their stuff.....except for this one. Clooney was told to just act eccentric and Pitt tries to ham it up waaayyyy too much. Terrible characters and no story to speak of. A few chuckles but not much. Was only an hour and a half and felt much longer. Super disappointed.
