Bottom line: I get paid to sit through this kind of rubbish. You don't.

By the time Peter Weller appears to do his William Burroughs routine, you can only assume an angry God has added up all your sins and this movie is your punishment.

Director Meiert Avis is a veteran helmer of music videos, so while it is not entirely surprising that he has no feel for character or structure, it is strange that he doesn't breathe much life into the frequent musical performances and montages either.

I am no fan of Ashlee Simpson, nor of her retarded, buck-toothed sister, but that has nothing to do with my view of this film. It would be just as bad if it were Ashlee-free.

A PG-13 dramedy set in L.A. about some attractive, way-too-earnest aspiring stars has the potential to be a delectable good-bad favorite, but Undiscovered is nowhere near the guilty pleasure it could have been.

Aiming for a bohemian punkster look, Simpson instead comes across as a deglamourized Kristy McNichol, outfitted with... a lower lip that continually does The Wave.

Not one character has the emotional maturity of an English muffin. If we could harness the intellectual energy of everyone involved in this, we could toast one. Lightly.

When Ashlee Simpson is the best thing about a movie then you know you are in trouble.

Undiscovered works a little. That may be enough for romantics needing a break from harsh reality.

The interesting dilemma with this film is wondering whether to be more embarrassed for the actors or the writer.

An Ashlee Simpson vehicle disguised as a 2-hour episode of Fame.

There's a pleasing patina of pure schlock that almost -- and I stress almost -- makes Undiscovered watchable.

Ashlee Simpson only has a supporting role, but she is far and away the best thing about this puerile indie drama.

if ever there was a movie whose title deserved its fate, it is Undiscovered.

Steven Strait has it all -- looks, talent, charisma and a smile to die for. Unfortunately, he can't save 'Undiscovered.'

For some reason, the semitalented folks behind Undiscovered think the world needs to be reminded that showbiz success can be tough on true love.

It's "The Heights: The Movie," and who the blazes remembers "The Heights" (besides Jamie Walters' friends and loved ones, of course)?

Comedy, romance and rock performance are spliced into a curious mediocrity.
