(Based on a musical by Chris D’Arienzo)
Long and dull the two worst things a movie can be. Nothing of any value is said in this. The songs sucked then and they suck now. Every celebrity in this can’t sing and is auto-tuned into robots. There is no passion or need for this. And worst of all they cast Will Forte in it and he has about zero lines playing a newscaster. I assume they were cut but why are we casting the amazingly bizarre Forte and then having him do nothing?! A total waste of pretty much everyones talents. Enough with the jukebox musicals. Give me something original! Give me something with passion! Just a lot of going through the motions. Tom Cruise seemed to be the only one trying and even then I wondered was he good in the role or was I just succumbing to their stunt casting?
