Quotes

Harry Styles: One of the reasons why I don't like the word famous it's because then people use it afterwards. They go, like: He used to be famous but he is not famous anymore. Like I was a guy before. I was the same guy during and I'm the same guy afterwards but people think they can label your life...

Really quite good
24 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

It is difficult to understand why anyone would pan this movie.

I watched this on an 8 foot high-definition screen. The images are razor sharp, the color is wonderful, the editing is in a modern style but not too jumpy. The story flow should keep your attention. On a decent 5.1 surround system the sound quality is very good. If there were technical flaws I was in a good position to find them. I didn't find any.

You get to see the members of the group perform and go about their lives. If you say (like one reviewer) that it was too scripted then you weren't paying attention. The boys revel in being spontaneous and doing what they want to do and wearing what they want to wear, or so it seems. It kept my interest.

All in all it was just fun - and I'm not even a fan.
