Missed Its Mark

  • Apr 8, 2001
The tone of this movie left so much promise from all the trailers put out upon its release. When I finally rented it last weekend, I was quite dissapointed. The fifteen year old genius seems out of place on the road with the fictitious band Stillwater. This fifteen year old does not even have any passion for rock n roll music. He is just a good writer who happens to be underaged. The only reason he was into music was because his sister left him a handful of records.

The comments about the rock n roll era being on its death bed and that Cameron Crowe arrived just in time for the death rattle is ludicrous. 1973 was the golden age of rock n roll as many styles of music were still considered cool.

The road trip scenes were pretty interesting and the presence of the groupies seemed like they were depicted fairly accurately. However, the pace of the movie just dragged and dragged with little of consequence that was in any degree memorable.

In general, this movie was not an all out disaster. However, it definitely missed its mark.
