The film grossed an average $758 from 2,333 theaters in its opening weekend. Due to the film's disastrous box office receipts, Warner Bros. canceled the Blu-ray release and instead, released the film on standard DVD. Overall, this was the fourth worst debut for a film with a 2,000+ theater average. It was surpassed later in 2015 by Rock the Kasbah (2015) ($731 average) and Jem and the Holograms (2015) ($570), both of which opened on October 23, 2015. See more »

I feel those expecting some mega existential change your life material out of movies miss out on the finer points.
Sure, there will be plenty of young people thinking this is a 'party' movie, and Zac Ephron followers will flock to the cinema to see him.
Those of us who actually enjoy story telling will be OK with this flick. Sure it wasn't heavy with mystery or intrigue, its a coming of age story of 4 friends trying to live out their dreams. Who doesn't have a story like that. Its about growing past those dreams, building new ones and dealing with the repercussions of the changes in life we make....some times which are thrust upon us.
The music is what I liked about this movie. Its not unlike other music related movies where an epiphany occurs for the lead character which makes all the difference in the world.
For an easy going movie this was worth the cheap night tickets I bought.
