    • 19 Metascore
    • 38 Laine Ewen
    Lacks the heart that might otherwise have breathed life into the pointless shtick.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Laine Ewen
    Clunky and riddled with clichés from start to finish, which is a shame because the cast is able and is led by Oscar-nominated director Mike Figgis.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Laine Ewen
    Earle fans might see this film as a satisfying portrayal of a man they know and love, but those unfamiliar with the man and his music will likely leave the theater without much more interest in him than when the movie began.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 38 Laine Ewen
    It is the overwhelmingly acrid sense of humor that leaves a bad taste in one's mouth at the end of the film.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Laine Ewen
    The premise of the film is serviceable, but the execution is flawed and entirely underwhelming.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Laine Ewen
    Some of the effects are squirm-worthy, if not actually frightening. Amid all the fake profundity, those moments -- you know, when the film is actually entertaining -- are rare.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Laine Ewen
    While the canine is a scene stealer, the movie is a dog.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 0 Laine Ewen
    Uncomfortable, offensive, and boring.
