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 »

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.
Nick: [still looking bored] Justin... Timberlake?

Awesomeness
7 June 2017 | by LaiathSee all my reviews

Well color me happy there's a sofa in here for two! This must be one of the most entertaining movies I've seen in a long time. Such an amazing script (all those hilarious lines, all the pop culture references in every other sentence, the light-hearted self deprecating humor...), and such fantastic delivery, I tried to will it not to end. Excluding the cheesy AF unrealistic ending, I loved every scene. One has to be well-versed in the music and celebrity tidbits of the past three decades to get everything, to say the least, though.

There was also quite a bit of soul-searching for quite a few characters, and amazingly, it was all done smoothly and with just the right amount of depth. That's a tough thing to accomplish in such a short time, but they nailed it!

So yeah, I definitely recommend it. "Treat yo self".
