I enjoyed it, but unless every review has been from someone who at one point lived in Los Angeles, the overwhelmingly glowing response is surprising. It isn't a new story and more often than not feels like the musical numbers were an afterthought. Emma Stone is delightful, as always, but Gosling's character could have been (and with his singing voice, should have been) played by anyone. All in all, if you do or have lived in L.A., it very much feels like a love-letter (over-used expression, I know) to the city and the industry that lured most of us there. Beyond that, it's a lackluster follow up to one of my favorite films of the last five years.
