    Sherman's feature turns out to be enamored of the kind of reality that gets left out of movies not because it's provocative or controversial, but because it isn't particularly interesting.

    It's disheartening that a story with roots in autobiography, no matter how tentative, should end up as such an impersonal genre rehash.

    Part of Snoop’s protean quality comes from the fact that his rhymes only cut so far: He can pivot freely because he’s never dug in too deep.

    For a movie that spends so much time extolling the virtues of the imagination to show so little of its own is more than ironic - it's offensive.
