Goofs

Harry says he was 16 when "Emotional Rescue" was released, but that album was released in June 1980 and Harry's passport birth date is in August 1961, so he was nearly 19 when that album came out. See more »

Dull, dull, dull.
4 July 2016 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The story line dragged on and on. The characters were totally unlikable and it felt like I had company over for a couple hours that were most annoying. If the purpose of this film was to show how shallow creative types and their managers are then I get it. If it is to show how truly boring the rich can be, then I get it and if it is to show how monotonous the directors politics are then I guess this film could have some merit. Do not waste your money on this film. It goes nowhere. The scenery is dried up and obviously so was the writers mind. If you like old drunks dropping in for a couple weeks then you'll possibly like a film like this, but if you have a life and any self respect you'll watch another film. A film should not be drudgery.
