If you liked the movie you will not be disappointed with this Collector's Edition.
Now the (very) bad: the plotline was terrible. It felt slapdash and poorly thought out. The ending was very meh - boring, preachy, and clichéd. I felt like a strict Mormon parent edited this for appropriate content - essentially killing the positivity and complexity of Aldous Snow.
Characters' personalities and backstories changed with annoying frequency. The rock 'n roll hijinx were predictable, boring, and incredibly amateur. Again, Puritanical editing/writing killed all the fun. Tedious in the manner of a high school sophomore's "Dude I was so *wasted* last night" stories. Heads up screenwriters: vomiting in and of itself does not a good/"crazy rock 'n roll" story make. There was a (much toned down) blatant ripoff of a Pulp Fiction scene - very lazy screenwriting. Very disappointing
This is essentially writer/director Nicholas Stoller's "African Child". (You'll 'get it' when/if you see this movie). Or terrible producer maybe? I dunno but something went wrong.
Bottom line/summary: Aldous Snow deserved bigger, better, and much more clever. It's a pity this film fell so flat. It was a great opportunity for something really clever and hilarious, and I would love to know sometime what happened to make it, well, not.
That said, again - if you're a fan of Brand or Hill, it's worth a watch for them. Despite the script, they're still very funny guys.
Right up there with Superbad, American Pie, the Hangover and Caddyshack.
Only "off" part was the end...look like they were desperate to wrap it up.
Russell Brand should be making more movies -- he's quite a talented guy. (And he does all his own singing, as well.)
