The Darjeeling Limited trailer (Wes on Wes)

So there's a not so secret frustration of mine: I don't enjoy Wes Anderson's movies very much. I really should. Pretty much everything about them is perfect. The dry humor, the actors involved, their aesthetic, the cinematography. But I don't enjoy them. I'm bored and my funny bone isn't tickled nearly as often as I think it will/should be.

Mr. Anderson has a new one coming out called The Darjeeling Limited. It stars Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman and Angelica Houston and is described as follows. An emotional comedy about three brothers re-forging family bonds. The eldest, played by Wilson, hopes to reconnect with his two younger siblings by taking them on a train trip across the vibrant and sensual landscape of India. [In Theatres: September 29th, 2007]

Once again I love the trailer, but I'm afraid I'll be disappointed by the actual film. It sure does look hilariously awesome for now though.

Dude, I understand exactly what you mean! Everyone of his previous movies has had this buzz that appealed to me and made me expect the 'best movie ever' each and every time. But, as you said, not nearly as funny (or tragic) as I expected based on trailers/hype...
