BRILLIANTBy a customer from London, England , 11 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]A real gem but a sleeper. It shows L.A. life spot on!
Background music to make you wish you were deaf!By JuiceOfLife (27 reviews) , 28 Jun 2011I really love Albert Brooks. He has a certain 'je ne sais quoi' which mesmerizes me whichever movie he is in.
All the characters were great. The main idea of the movie IS funny and the punchline is great but that's all there is, just one idea repeated over and over gain.
But above all, what turned this movie into a nightmare for me, was the truly awful and nerve grinding background music with its inappropriate furious tempo and style. I had to cut the volume off everytime this 'noise' came on!
Without this i would have rated it a good, pleasant movie to watch,
Good clean fun, humorousBy BKieser (36 reviews) from Brampton , 25 Oct 2009This is one of those predictable, formula Hollywood movies. Script is okay, jokes are okay but not side splitting.
No great twists, acting passable, best scene in movie is a naked Sharon Stone getting into bed.
A few good lines.
You wouldn't regret watching this if you just want a night in with some popcorn, a few laughs and nothing too serious.
Passes the time and provides chucklesBy tunnelweb (188 reviews) from Hamilton , 08 Aug 2008A perfectly watchable light comedy - but that's all you get. It's predictable and has no depth, while the filmmaking is competent, but no aspect is exceptional or inventive. Still, it passes the time and provides chuckles.
News about ther MuseBy hugh37 from Lancs , 29 Nov 2004A movie that's much better than it's rating of 3. It was recommended to me by my brother as a very pleasant movie with lots of laughs.
He also said not to be put off by Sharon Stone and that Jeff Bridges, always excellent, did not have a major part to play. The success of the movie hangs on Albert Brooks' performance as, unbelievably, a Hollywood scriptwriter fallen on difficult times who, in desperation, turns to Stone's Muse for inspiration. Lots of in-jokes and good humour follows. Well worth the effort. Deserves a 5 in my opinion.
Different!By a customer from dorchester dorset , 11 Mar 2004Bit of a confusing film storyline i found was a bit all over the place film in general did hold my interest as i wanted to see how it ended but truthfully wouldn't recommend it basically a cheesey film!
