Then when he steps off the stage singing and walking towards Chloe, his voice continues to come from the speakers even though he's wearing no sound equipment. See more »

Quotes

Nick: [looking bored] Look it's five minutes to show; why do we always have to cut this so close?
JC: [putting his arm around Nick's shoulder] Come here, okay? The secret to success... is *relaxation*.
Nick: I'm relaxed.
JC: No. You know there was another guy in my band who couldn't relax either? To be honest with you, he was just as good a singer as me and the other guy.

Easy watch!
9 June 2017 | by melizSee all my reviews

I had not read about this movie when I watched it, but I was pleasantly surprised by the witty comments and references. It had me laughing quite a few times. I feel it is a bit of a "parody" in some ways, but no overkill by any means. It was a fun and easy watch. I think you have to like the genre musical, even if this is not a 100% musical. A bit goofy and silly overall, just as I like it. Cast was OK as well, good mix of known and less known. Movie of the year? No, but worth 1.5 hours in my opinion.
