Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is truly the worst movie I've seen in quite some time. It is so bad, in fact, that it makes the other films I thought were bad (Tooth Fairy; Eat, Pray Love) actually look halfway decent. It is silly and simplistic. Mickey Rourke as someone women find attractive is just a ludicrous concept, given that his face looks like it's been previously used by several other people. His character is a complete cliche: the formerly successful musician wrecked by fame, disillusionment and drugs. A sad waste of Bill Murray in another cliched role as the semi-elegant thug with weird taste in housing. Then there's the very limited Megan Fox who gives a striking performance (as once was famously said by Dorothy Parker of Katharine Hepburn) that runs the gamut of emotions from A to B. She's very pretty. Acting ability is not one of her skills. This Grade C film is crowded with A-list actors who have to have been under the impression that they were in a far better movie and probably wept at the premiere or tried to sneak away before anyone saw them. Or maybe they did it for the money. Whatever the reason, it's just terrible. Had I paid to see this in a theatre, I'd have left early on and asked for my money back.

I couldn't agree more Charlotte! This made 'Stop or My Mom Will Shoot' and 'White Men Can't Jump' look good!
I don't know what is up with Bill Murray! The only movies that I can think of that was excellent in were 'Groundhog Day', 'Ghost Busters', and 'What About Bob?'!
That movie that he made in Japan was AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL, and this ran right there with it!
