"Water for Elephants" is a lame drama about a troubled circus in the early days of the depression, as told by someone who's been there. Robert Patterson plays a med student who forced to hit the road after his parents were kiulled in a car clash. While there he falls for a horse trainer, plkayed by Reese Witherspoon. The chemistry between thye pair is non-existance, if any. The only bright moment came from Christoph Waltz as the circus ringmaster and Witherspoon's husband. There's very little drama in this movie. Comparing this movie to the 1952 Oscar Winner "The Greatest Show on Earth." That movie has plenty of drama. "Water for Elephant" has less drama. I have yet to see Robert Pattinson do more that take his shirt off. In the trailer for the movie, I heard a music piece that I love. Why didn't they use this piece for this movie? This movie couldn't hold much water.
