I have to disagree with the previous critic mentioning this look like a chick flick. If anything, it's just sad that they amplified his portrait as a bad father/husband. A part from that, It was a pretty good rendition of the tragic life of this amazing singer. My main problem is the accent that the lead role chose. I heard Gerry on TV a few times and I don't feel that's the way he talked. The accent annoyed me pretty much all through the movie. The singing was highly credible though and I feel they gave tribute to his music better than the movie Dede did for Les colocs . All in all, the movie has more high than lows although it was maybe 20mins too long.
