This works great as a parody. What is presented here has nothing to do with the real events, most characters are straight out of an American teen movie, every character is completely different from the real life version in everything (looks, behavior) and the story is insultingly false. The book was already bad, the movie is about 100 times worse. No band gave the rights to its music, even bands that had no real involvement in the true events that the movie is trying, and failing spectacularly, to portray. I love the few good reviews and the downvoting of the one negative review that says the truth, the movie will bomb either way. If you want to see an American teen movie with romance, sex, American humor and a bit of fake drama then this is for you. If you want to see a serious drama based on tragic events then avoid it like the plague.
