Comments: Okay, if you’ve looked at the cast list, you’ve seen that Ashlee Simpson is in this movie. And yes, she sings… Strike one, strike two. The movie is definitely a teen-angst film about post-teens. Confused? I was mostly confused about how a so-so looking girl landed so many modeling gigs… but I digress…
The movie is about a musician guy who falls for a girl. She rebuffs his advances, but decides to secretly advance his career – he gets mega successful, then loses it all because of his feelings for her. But wait, there’s more...
Kudos to you if you stick around for all of it. Favorite parts of the movie – teen audience members heckling Ashlee anytime she sang… the two guys sitting in front of us that laughed hysterically at every lame joke, then sat at the edge of their seats during the last ten minutes and clapped without a trace of irony at the end. These same guys (one of whom I posted for your viewing pleasure today… see what I’m up against?! A middle-aged, pot-bellied, orange-Hawaiian-shirt-wearing dude!), actually LAUGHED at Greektown and I when we unapologetically clapped and cheered when Brier cut Luke’s hair at the end (OVERDUE). I've never laughed so hard at being laughed at.
I don’t really recommend this movie unless you’re going to see it with the same people we did – they MADE the movie one of the most enjoyable theatre experiences I’ve had of late (and I’ve seen / enjoyed some GREAT films – more reviews this week!). Also, note to Carrie Fisher: lose the eyeliner!
