This movie seems to be almost universally acclaimed but I didn't like it at all. It was so serious! I think there was one single scene in the movie that ended on a high note. Every other scene was either outright sad, overlaid with hopelessness, or foreshadowing tragedy. Blah. I did like their souped-up car named "Baby", though.
This movie was based on a novel by Erich Maria Remarque, author of All Quiet on the Western Front. The screenplay was at least partially written by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
