The Lakers saw the movie "Lincoln" together Thursday evening, a film that elicited mixed reactions from the players.

Tweeted Pau Gasol: "We've watched "Lincoln"! Very good movie! It describes one of the most important moments in the history of the USA. Highly recommended!"

Jordan Hill was not as impressed.

"I fell asleep 8 times," he tweeted. 

Regardless of whether the movie was a hit, it's positive that the team is doing activities together, a move that will further augment their chemistry on and off the court.

Some team bonding couldn't come at a better time.

The Lakers are in eighth place in the 15-team Western Conference with a disappointing record of 9-10, not quite the spot they were expected to be in after acquiring Steve Nash and Dwight Howard during the offseason.

They play the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, a team that reached the NBA Finals last season and is currently in second place in the Western Conference with a record of 15-4.
