Movie Info

Billie Joe Armstrong leads an all-star cast in the candid and heartwarming comedy, Ordinary World. Perry (Armstrong), a former punk rocker, is ten years into his band's "indefinite hiatus" and is struggling with his adjustment to the real world, which includes working in his family's hardware store. When Perry's hotshot attorney wife (Selma Blair) and precocious young daughter forget his 40th birthday, his brother (Chris Messina) takes pity and gives him the money to throw a huge rockstar blowout in a fancy New York hotel. At the party, Perry's punk past clashes hilariously with his grown-up reality as he encounters crazy former bandmates, including best pal Gary (Fred Armisen), and an old-flame-turned-manager (Judy Greer), who offers him a chance to revive his stalled career, all in one outrageous day!

Ordinary World becomes raggedly enjoyable thanks to the unexpected charms of its leading man

Top Critic

Unless you're trying to recreate some sort of updated, role-swapped kid show - a sitcom without a sensibility, but a guaranteed group-hug at the end - "Ordinary World" is a pretty extraordinary failure.

Newark Star-Ledger
Top Critic

The film turns into a predictable midlife-crisis yarn.

New York Times
Top Critic

The film distinguishes itself by what it lacks: simple, unrealistic answers to Perry's regrets and the hole in his soul.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

Like your average three-chord rock song, Ordinary World is easy enough to get into - even if it doesn't get stuck in your head.

May be unique in the cinematic annals of manchildren in that its protagonist goes from overgrown adolescent to midlife crisis without any intervening adulthood.
