Editorial Reviews

Meet Bill (Aaron Eckhart) - a doormat if ever there was one. A man reduced to a mere accessory to his family by working a dead end job at his father-in law s bank and arguing about his overindulgent love for chocolate with his wife Jess (Elizabeth Banks) who is loathe to explain her friendship with the local news anchorman (Timothy Olyphant). But Bill's fate begins to change when he becomes mentor to a self-assured boy (Logan Lerman) who engineers Bill s recovery with the help of a cute lingerie sales girl named Lucy (Jessica Alba). Together, the trio confronts Bill s hapless life with humor and energy while forcing him to capture his dream of being financially independent and self-confident. MEET BILL is a film about what it means to let go of your inhibitions and find the path you re destined for.

2.0 out of 5 stars the DVD is short April 11, 2002
Format:DVD
The DVD is not up to the same standards as the VHS tape. It is shorter and is only pan and scan. Usually movies for rental are P&S. Collectors of movies want widescreen and full length (at least what was seen on the big screen).I liked this movie but I am [not happy] that they would release a less that optimal version on DVD. The VHS version is only P&S but atleast the whole movie is there.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's hard to beleive that Fox would do Pan and Scan! November 8, 2001
Format:DVD
What a disappointment it is to hear that this, a 2.35:1 film will be released as a pan and scan DVD. And by Fox of all studios. This is a cool Dolph movie that had a great atmosphere to it but you won't feel it in the cropped confines of 1.33:1. Why they would remaster it with a Dolby 5.1 soundtrack and not even bother to present it in it's OAR is beyond me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts Good, Flops At The End September 13, 2008
Format:DVD
Meet Bill is the story of Bill (played by Aaron Eckhart), a man who is quickly realizing that his wife, weight, job and life are all out of control. His wife is cheating, his stomach is growing, his job is pointless, and he wants more out of life than what he has.

During a random encounter, Bill meets high school student known only as The Kid (played by Logan Lerman), and it is here that the story takes off.

Meet Bill starts off with a bang. We are instantly pulled into the life of Bill, can sympathize with him, and want the best for him. The movie shows great potential for the first 45 minutes as we meet the other cast of characters in Bill's life. We can sympathize with Bill, and ultimately feel good about cheering him on.

But then, somewhere halfway through this film, it unravels. Scenes start to feel pointless. The story meanders, and feels like the writers knew where it would take off, but not how it should land. The pacing becomes a slow, dull crawl. And at the end of the movie, in the last five minutes,
Bill completely falls out of character and decides to shirk everything the movie has built up to, and become a wandering nomad.

The actors do an amazing job with what they are given to work with, and I cannot fault any of them. Each actor threads the film together with great depth. Unfortunately the script doesn't give them much to hold together.

And ultimately, I felt empty as the credits rolled.

3.0 out of 5 stars stylish action May 22, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The beginning scene is strange, with Dolph exiting his street-level apartment with his "violin", as if he is about to go amble over to work , in some forgotten, quiet, mill town. The setting is strange..., a huge, modern skyscraper, again, in the middle of an unnaturally quiet city.
Summed up, the movie does not really make sense-yet I still enjoyed the action and sarcastic remarks. Dolph's war weary mercenary character seemed improbable ( why keep working for the "corporation", if you continually refuse to do the dirty work--do they have some unmentioned black mail on him? An explanation would have been nice ).
It is a dark movie and makes no apologies for that, right up to the ambiguous ending.
On an unfortunate note, if you are a fan of the movie ( I am ), then you will be disappointed by the lack of wide screen, and by the missing scenes. We could hope for a director's cut release, but the general lack of popularity of this movie might preclude that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed it! June 23, 2013
By afzwin
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I liked the story line. Everyone can relate to feeling a little shmucky at times... and Aaron Eckhart plays it great. I really enjoyed the story line where he slowly starts regaining control of his life. Really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleeper March 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
When I first saw this movie in the list of comedies I was skeptical but as it got going I really started to get into it. Great follow through with the ending. Hope to see more like it on prime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsung classic Dolph January 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Certainly for the Dolph fans out there, this one is a green light. Dark, moody almost noir like in its style. Haunting soundtrack, good visuals (aside from a fairly dodgy CGI helicopter) and Dolph is in good form. But he does appear to be doing it easily. Personally, it's one of his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dolph movie July 31, 2007
Format:DVD
I started to look out for Dolph Lundgren films after I saw this one. But it is my feeling that none other is better than Silent Trigger. Very stylish, very moody, overacted in a grand way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious
Of course Aaron Eckart can be funny. This was a weird but funny movie. Logan Lerman, the sidekick kid, is a great actor and did great in this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars very fast delivery time.
The acting was good, but the story line is not a popular one. You have to be able to root for the main character and it has to have an overall feel-good flavor.
