Even by its genre's comfort-food standards, this movie feels blandly circumscribed, almost child-proofed, as if any sharper reality or wit might be harmful to the intended audience.
Unfortunately, Merson clutters her sometimes soulful, sensitive story with too many formulaic contrivances to impede Catherine's personal and professional progress.
This is a movie that runs on magical thinking.
Another week, another benign rock and roll romance.
Any film justifies its existence when it gives Katey Sagal a chance to sing.
Jason Ritter's the best thing about the film, genuinely funny as a vapid but well-meaning fool-actor. His hysterically crying, post-sex monologues are hilarious.
Catherine's journey towards acknowledging she's no better than any of the people she silently screams at in frustrated rage becomes a pit of quicksand.
Listless romcom has flat characters, drinking.
Just like its lead character, the film can't decide what it wants to be when it grows up.
The film uses its setting as lazy shorthand: for the nostalgia of lost childhood, the virtues of independence, and the spiritual purity of acoustic rock.
Katey Sagal as a reclusive folk-rock star and the still magical setting aren't enough to recommend this thinner-than-thin musical romance.
The filmmakers play Catherine's disgustingly narcissistic sense of entitlement as endemic to the supposedly girl-next-door charms befitting the film's thoroughly normative gender politics.
