One of the BEST--BAD movies of all times: Bad acting (except Cooper), bad script and BAD effects. The good news: It's an excellent movie to watch on a rainy afternoon and throw popcorn at the screen. The plot is predictable, but still a fun romp. The film features 2 songs that were unreleased until 1999 -- a nice musical treat. The character of "Vincent" (wonder where they came up with that name) is perfect for Cooper: we almost believe that he could be like this in "real life." Personally, I appreciated Cooper's career choice to stay in music, however, the movie gave him an outlet to stretch his acting creativity beyond Shock-Rock Theater. If Mr. Cooper made another movie, I'd pay 8 bucks to see it. Even if it were as bad as this one.
