    From a female's perspective who had read the book before the movie, I did not enjoy it at all. The beginning is very slow, and didn't catch my attention. Who wants to know about another pathetic PIG of a man, or should i say CHILD? Women get enough of this immaturity from real men, we don't need to hear about someone else. I do have to say that the end helped me understand From a female's perspective who had read the book before the movie, I did not enjoy it at all. The beginning is very slow, and didn't catch my attention. Who wants to know about another pathetic PIG of a man, or should i say CHILD? Women get enough of this immaturity from real men, we don't need to hear about someone else. I do have to say that the end helped me understand men a little better but I still thought it was poor. Maybe it's because the only thing Rob (the narrator) talks about is Music and how it relates to his pathetic life. Expand

    Watching this movie was like a 90 minute glimpse into hell. I hear "You mean you don't have Blonde on Blonde??" twenty times a day at work, I don't feel like hearing it on screen. Even worse is it's coming out of Jack Black's mouth. This movie is for hipster's only. If you have any kind of intelligence or self-respect rent something else.

    Even if it sometimes skips, it's consistently wittier and more idiosyncratic that most studio movies.

    Sad, funny, brilliant.

    Causes us to leave the theater quite unreasonably happy.
