Customer Reviews

Kevin Spacey does all of his own singing and Kate Bosworth is fantastic.
DKD-Starks
A clever way to tell a story and although there were a couple too many dance/song numbers, overall it was well done and very well acted.
Ann McArthur
I don't know much about Bobby Darin, but I hope his life wasn't really as boring as this film makes it seem.

Dear Kevin,

Thank you for reviving interest in one of the truly great singers of the 20th century. Bobby Darin was a teen idol during my teen years. Your movie, so lovingly made and beautifully acted, brought back so many wonderful memories that I sat there in the theater and cried with joy. An 8th grade sock hop where everyone was jumping to "Splish Splash," a dj-call in show where my current crush dedicated "Dream Lover" to me, and the reassuring and hopeful lyrics of "Beyond the Sea" that played in my mind during some of high school's darker moments are just some of the many memories your movie brought back. I'm sure anyone of my generation who was tuned in to music would love this movie. But my 21-year old daughter whom I coerced into going with me also loved it and we plan on scouring amazon for all the remastered CD's and DVD's on this great and talented man, Bobby Darin.

Speaking of great and talented, you have outdone yourself on this one. We all knew you were a fine actor, but to see you singing and dancing and obviously loving it and imitating Bobby's style and moves so uncannily well must have brought as much joy to you as it did to all of us fortunate enough to have seen this movie.

Seeing Bobby's love affair with Sandra Dee played out on the screen was great and brought back all those hours my friends and I spent pouring over issues of "Photoplay" to read anything about the super couple.

Even those not blessed with memories of Bobby from his heydey will fall in love with this movie for its songs alone. From the snappy "Mack the Knife" opening to the tearful closing, this movie is great and one I will definitely get on DVD when available.

Thank you, Kevin Spacey. This is your masterpiece.

Not only does Spacey do his own singing in this movie but he's got Darren's moves down as well. Obviously a labor of love, the movie is not without some flaws but Kevin Spacey is such a superb, riveting actor that you're likely to overlook any slight imperfections and be entranced by this movie. I've bought just about every book and video about Darren (including some rare video footage) and I'm awed at the way Spacey captures Darren's essence - his personality, his perfectionisn, the whole package. Clearly aware of the limited time available to him, Darren pushed himself to the brink of exhaustion and probably shortened his life even more - but oh, what he accomplished while he had the time!
Put this on your list of "must-see" holiday films, one that has to be see on the big screen. This one ought to catapalt Spacey's reputation even higher...and deservedly so.

I fell in love all over again not only with Bobby Darin but Kevin Spacey as well. I loved the movie and the music and I've tried to take my parents to see it for weeks now but it isn't showing anywhere! Why did they only open in a couple of Art Theaters? It's a shame the public isn't getting a chance to see this wonderful film about such a great performer. My dad never goes to movies but at age 76 he waits patiently for it to come to a theater near him. I've already requested to be notified when it is available on DVD. This is a must own for me. Thanks for all the love that went into making this movie. Kevin deserves an Oscar for his performance. I'd also like to track down a copy of the movie Captain Newman MD when Bobby Darin was nominated for an Oscar.

Format: DVD
Frankly, I did not appreciate Bobby Darin when he was alive. I was too young and didn't quite get what he was about. I had just started paying attention to him when he died in 1973. It is about time someone told his story. By all accounts, Kevin Spacey is a Bobby Darin devotee and it shows in this wonderful and fascinating movie.

First of all, I loved the way the story is told. It is not a narrative, although it talks about the singer's life. It is all about the music and how it came out of his strange youth and how his illness forced him to focus in on what mattered most to him because he never expected to live all that long. Rheumatic Fever as a child had damaged his heart. Of course, the smoking, drinking, and pills along they way didn't help him and he died at 37 after heart surgery.

The movie points out the structure of his life, his early show business inspiration, the rough beginnings, his successes, meeting, wooing, and marrying Sandra Dee. The movie is able to point out the problems in the marriage without becoming dark or making anyone into the bad guy. Again, the emphasis is on the music and the strains that puts on the human side of being human.

Kevin Spacey is clearly too old to play Bobby Darin, but so what? Who else is going to do it? He sure does a great job singing the songs and pulling off the spirit of the guy. To give you an idea of how the story is told, the opening scene has Darin and some guys walking through the kitchen of a club to the stage. Before he gets there some reporter says to Darin that he is too old to be playing himself. Darin then goes through the curtains as the announcer introduces him. Spacey begins singing a great version of "Mack the Knife".
