We went to see this last night.

I'm amazed at just how quickly two hours can fly. Quick verdict - pure unadulterated entertainment with minimal social comment, very slick and smooth. Whatever plot holes and inconsistencies there may be are lost in the action.

Quite why both Larry 'Oracle' Ellison and Elon 'PayPal' Musk appear is anyone's guess.

Edit: According to Jon Favreau, director of the Iron Man movies, Musk is the inspiration for his and Robert Downey Jr's interpretation of Tony Stark

Nothing to do with the *huge* portions, then :-)

Well, yes, but that's why we don't order more than one dish each.

With your traditional Chinese, you could stuff yourself on lots of dishes, but end up feeling peckish again an hour or two later, which isn't a problem with Michael's cooking.
