I wish Naomi Watts or Marion Cotillard would have got Bullock's role as apparently they both were considered as they may have made the lines not feel so clunky. I would also have preferred Robert Downey Jr to George Clooney but I guess he had scheduling conflicts and had to drop out.
I am no fan of Bullock but I dunno if I would blame it on her, the written dialogue near the end just wasnt that great
