In trying to create an air of libertine cool, Proyas succeeds in looking like someone who's trying too hard.

A mainstream endeavor tricked out as an indie, Garage Days gives us plenty to look at but no reason to care.

Absolutely the wussiest rock 'n' roll movie since Rick Springfield's Hard to Hold (1984).

Proyas...has made a film that resembles "Trainspotting" if it were sweet instead of edgy. Unfortunately, his third feature seems more like a first effort

This movie could only work if the jokes were funny, and writers David Warner and Michael Udesky don't deliver the goods.

A small-scale Australian musical with an appealing no-name cast whose charms are obscured by directorial self-indulgence.

A cheery, cheeky, youthful lark that it trips over its Doc Martens in the first few scenes and never gets up.

Director Alex Proyas tries to serve up a good-spirited romp, but by the time this one arrives at its welcome conclusion, you may well have had enough 'lively, eye-popping' filmmaking to last the rest of the year.

A movie of shopworn riffs and borrowed noise, dressed up with considerable surface polish and glam production values.

I wouldn't want to hang out with these cats and I certainly wouldn't want them practicing in my garage, it's bad enough to sit through their movie.

It's a handsome film, and made with verve, but too often the tone wobbles and far, far too many of its jokes hit with a splat.

Fun in a guilty pleasure sort of way, but ultimately easily forgotten.

Strip away the music video-style imagery and eighties-flavored rock soundtrack from Garage Days and you're left with a forced, self-consciously 'wacky' comedy that's more frantic than genuinely funny.

Proyas is relentless in his attempts to infuse the material with visual zip, and in doing so, he only exacerbates its flimsiness.

Despite plenty of drugs and a fair amount of sex, Garage Days asphyxiates from a lethal lack of rock'n roll.

How did it all go so horribly wrong for Alex Proyas in his latest movie, Garage Days?
