This movie is GREAT!! Very funny, touching, story of an alcoholic who can't get out of his own way. Joaquin is fantastic in the role, really gets all the nuances of the character spot on. You really believe this happened to him, totally involves you in the story from the very beginning. So much to like about this film. Supporting characters are just as important to the story, and they deliver.
Great, fun movie to watch and eat popcorn to. Awesome shooting locales, Mexico, Los Angeles, great race down Sunset Blvd. Two pretty as pictures leads. Does get a little bogged down towards the end, but a lot of these thrillers have hard times ending their stories. All the actors are very good in their roles. Win win in my book.
If you take all the bad press he has gotten, throw it out. this would be considered a very good Woody Allen movie, period. Fun script, sharp writing, good performances from young Hollywood, what more do you want? Well in keeping with new Hollywood films: there's no transgenders, no multi-race couples, no gay best friend, no kid searching for their sexual identity, no one with a debilitating disease, no drugs, no social justice warriors etc. you get the point. Its a lively film that's fun to watch, fun to listen to, period.
Great acting, great story, not really anything to dislike. Went to the theatre
and really enjoyed my tune spent watching this. So glad I went and
didn't listen to all the neg reviews. Sometimes the critics are right.
