Guess what? The synopsis “weaves together the stories of an array of people from disparate social backgrounds” never gets old. Maybe it’s Babel. Maybe it’s Love, Actually. Hell, maybe it’s One Night at McCool’s.

Either way, the formula works.

That’s what 360 was banking on when it was released in the summer to little fanfare and hoped for critical acclaim. Written by Peter Morgan — who penned Helen Mirren’s The Queen — and directed by Fernando Meirelles — who created the 21st century’s most instantly instant classic, City of God — the film stars Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins (Tony to his friends) and a plethora of others who move between Vienna, Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver, and Phoenix.

Yes, Denver and Phoenix.

Then again, the film has 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. We may have just wasted a little over 100 words on this, but it’s a good bet none of your friends have seen it and you just may be able to play it up a little.

Nope. Nevermind. The Guardian thought it stunk, too. Oh, well. It’s got a great trailer.
