Not So Good even for the 70's
30 January 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It should be a crime to promote and a film with the words featuring the music of Van Morrison this film featured half of one Van song (Astral Weeks) and a full Lala from Derek & the Dominoes & a lot of other obscure background music.

Taking in to consideration the period of the 70's the film's plot was okay but fell off after about 30 minutes and ultimately it was about a man who loved his music but hated his boss & the system etc. A man who can't love a woman and keep a job because he thinks he should be "cool" instead.
