“Saw the movie with very low expectations…but was surprised.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI mean seriously, i thought this movie was going to be completely lame, and i was just waiting for that one u0026quot;stupidu0026quot; moment that defined the movie as a complete Flop,etc. But to my surprise, the movie just seemed to keep getting better! (especially the beginning, with Rain Wilson chasing after his ex-band mates in the van, WOW, i literally almost fell out of my chair! I love unpredictable crazy moments like that…and this movie was full of them…..)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIm a huge fan of Rain Wilson, and I KNOW heu0026#39;s an underdog actor who is not being used to his full potential.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI just LOVE how his character is throughout the movie, heu0026#39;s just got this whole Jack-Black meets Dwight(from the Office) thing going on! He does a very good job of portraying a kind of washed up crazy rock star, yet still very sharp and witty at times….he just seems to be able to switch them on and off during the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall this movie was A lot better than i thought, had a very good rock flow to it, yet positive mood.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you see this movie, go into it NOT expecting much!(just like the trailers make you think) Youu0026#39;ll be most likely surprised by all the witty funny moments that just flare out of nowhere!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e—–u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTHE GOOD – u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e-Rain Wilson is VERY funny -He does a good job acting, u0026quot;The Officeu0026quot; fans will like it -Movie has a decent positive storyline IMO -The costumes were PRICELESS -The faces Rain makes, and his quotes were excellent..(not quite as weird/good as the Office, but definitely good enough.) -Alot of unpredictable little quick moments and quotes!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTHE BAD -u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e-I couldnu0026#39;t stand the borderline EMO sounding songs the band played thru-out the movie sometimes!(although Rain was still his hardcore self and never missed a friggin beat!) -The storyline just suddenly moves REAL FAST…then all of a sudden slows back down to normal speed….like how they suddenly get a record contract,etc….”
