Woodstock indoors?
1 February 2003 | by (Naperville IL) – See all my reviews

I love this movie it is so funny. I think that Jim Morrisons stoned surfer dude dialog is worthy of an academy. Jimi's vomit is the stuff of the heavens, and hey at last a good looking Janis who CAN sing. Anyhow if you love bad movies and sitting drunk with your friends and making sarcastic remarks is your idea of fun, this may be your waterloo! The bizarre music may be the highlight, but then I remember the plot. Honestly it's really crazy and you must see it to believe it. I suppose the Hendrix guy was the best, but they sure give him some off the wall lines. Jim of course is made out to be an incoherent wreck. Janis they were nicer too, but somehow I don't think any of three hung out as much as this film would lead you to think. Actually thinking isn't the point of this movie, it's just enjoying the schlock. Ed Wood had he lived may have turned out something just like this.
