Worst movie of the year. Too long, characters are unlikeable and it's completely pointless. Maybe people who like comic book movies will like this, because it makes as little sense, but I doubt it.
Best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Great acting and unbelievably well done supporting roles by Tom Waits, Sean Penn and Bradley Cooper. A fun experience. Probably not suited for those who like movies based on comic book characters and special effects.
What a waste of money. I kept waiting for it to get better but it never did. The whole movie made no sense. It was a messed up jumble of nothing.
A waste of money. A very bland movie. I kept waiting for it to get better, but it never did.
This movie is youth. It is hope. It recalls tough political times, not unlike our own, but it is teeming with love and a vigorous belief that the fight is worth it, Things will get better. It embodies the vibe of the 70’s. Brilliant acting by the entire cast. Not one errant line. We are fortunate to have the two new stars,
This film is made of hope. It is original, witty, wry and authentic. The two starring performances by Cooper Hoffman and Alana Haim are refreshingly new and delightful. Why is there no Oscar for most impressive debut? See this film now! This movie could not have come at a better time.
Good movie. Terrible title.
Too slow, you wait and wait for something to grab you and when it comes it's a complete let down. I had to leave because it wasn't worth my time.
These are 2 hours you will not get back. I say 2 because the scenes with Bradley Cooper are worth a watch. The rest of it is wrong on several levels. Perhaps it’s aiming for creative. It’s like giving a toddler several cans of paint and no canvas or brush and leaving the house for three hours. Then, inviting friends to come over and eat hot pockets and smoke weed while silently observing the resulting “art show” complete with food, feces and paint smeared throughout the house. Seriously, what was that?
A mess. All the way through. Completely unbelievable story. Wish I hadn't bothered with this one.
Too many starts when it should have ended halfway through
The reviewers of Showtimes.com can't handle any movie that does not follow a linear path, isn't explained concisely, or has a conclusion that is open-ended. This was a good movie.
Waste of time
There was nothing redeemable about this movie. It started no where and went no where.
this movie was one of the dumbest movies i have ever seen. stupid story line, stupid characters!
I liked the perspective from high school kids and from the 25 year old female star. It was a bit long but I really enjoyed it and I came out feeling better than when I went in.
The girl is super hot.
I don’t get this . I tried to like it, but it made no sense. Good acting, poor story line.
The two young leads were terrific and cameos by Sean Penn and Bradley Cooper(ad Jon Peters) so much fun to watch. Charming story and great cinematography and costumes. A fun evening at the movies. The title is taken from a 70s record store in Los Angeles.
This movie was a total waste of time. Totally stupid
