Why the hell did I buy an iPad? Did I fall victim to crass commercialism? Am I any different than my son, who wants whatever sugar-laden cereal happens to be showing in the ad before whatever cartoon he's watching?
If you see The Town, you'll probably think of it as a standard heist flick. Because it's well-directed by Ben Affleck, you may not be able to put your finger on what doesn't work, but you'll know you've seen it all before.
