Three different songs were used for the final sequence at various points. Some advance screenings (including the New York Film Festival version) featured the Beatles' "I'm Looking Through You" (not the "official" version, but rather the alternate version available on the "Anthology 2" CD set), while others used the Beach Boys' "Sloop John B." The final version of the scene is accompanied by 's "Everyone." See more »
Maybe if I was able to sit through the whole movie, it would have gotten better. But, I doubt it. My wife and I sat through about the first 30 minutes and both of us agreed to hit the off button. So many times, I sit through really bad movies and think "It has to get better", but it seldom does. This movie started off so bad that even if it got a lot better, it would still be very bad.
This movie and the reviews here just show how different our tastes are. Either that, or a lot of people think that they see the art in a really bad piece of crap and are such elitists that they have to tell us how brilliant it was. Maybe I should just stick to 6 star movies. Usually they are fun to watch.
