An earnest tale about a faded rock star who discovers he has a teenaged daughter and takes her on the road, Janie Jones follows a predictable path and despite decent performances it does not catch fire.

A minor, utterly familiar and predictable father-daughter road picture melodrama, though Abigial Breslin is good

You can probably guess what must happen during the course of this road trip. Even less surprising than its story arc, however, are its character details.

Not only reveals that Abigail Breslin as an incredibly talented singer, but an actress who can take a subpar script, breathe life into it and make it somewhat enjoyable, too.

Abigail Breslin is a charismatic screen presence, and quite splendid as the self-contained youngster.

Despite the pic's assets and overall restraint, a whiff of cliched deja vu remains.
