    It isn't a really good movie, but there's real talent in it.
  2. The trouble with Undiscovered isn't that it's actively annoying but it's so dramatically listless it seems determined to become Unremembered.
  3. There is a good movie here--Strait actually sings the songs that stand on their own, and he's appealing, despite the rock movie cliches.

    Too inert to be titillating, too generic to be engaging.
  5. Tailored for the readership of Teen People magazine and about as thought-provoking as the average 500-word celebrity profile.

    A PG-13 dramedy set in L.A. about some attractive, way-too-earnest aspiring stars has the potential to be a delectable good-bad favorite, but Undiscovered is nowhere near the guilty pleasure it could have been.

    Indeed, I'd say Undiscovered belongs on the WB, but that would be gravely unfair to the channel, which looks like the BBC in comparison.

    They should have kept their working title "Wannabe" because this movie wannabe something original, but it's definitely not!

    Awful movie! Simpson, you are not an actress! (Or a singer as a matter of fact) Don't try! Just because you are famous (somehow) Awful movie! Simpson, you are not an actress! (Or a singer as a matter of fact) Don't try! Just because you are famous (somehow) doesn't mean you automatically have talent. Leave the acting to Russell Crowe and the music to John Coltrane and Charlie Parker. (real talent) Expand

    If they could somehow morph this movie and the sicko trash movie "Chaos," I might actually watch it.

    The movie was almost as good as Ashley's performance at the halftime show where she was booed by 20,000 people.
