  • 1 star "I would write a review, but this movie doesn't deserve one. It's boring, the story line changes 3 times and we follow multiple hero's through a short lineage. None of which are interesting... The terrible performance of Gosling can sometimes be a little bit funny, but really, the only respectable performance (and actor) in this film is Bradley Cooper. Eva Mendes slept her way into the film, so she gets cut from any form of respect right there. Men don't use their dicks to get into the biz, they use their cunning. Women that use their poontang are as low as a snake oil salesman."
  • 2 stars "Kind of a pointless exercise, although I did like Mendes' performance. Very slow moving...lets hear it for fast-forward"
  • 5 stars "Excellent drama !"
