Could have been worse
28 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I read in the comments the right were bought for an American remake? WOW cashing on a pop-star is easy just everywhere.

A few good moments, a few funny moments too and a remarkably good performance from Johnny as acting is not his thing. To set the whole film on the shoulders of someone who is not an actor and who just did a few cameos and guest star appearances is a proof of courage.

Fabrice Luccini is just... himself and for some people pretty annoying, but sort of okay here.

If you can watch it on a plane, OK keep your eyes open for the first half. Don't make the mistake of buying it unless you're a big big fan of Johnny.

For Johnny it shows that he may get further on the silver screen, and without doing what Miss Hilton did.
