    "Why Stop Now" 10 Scale Rating: 5.0 (Average) ...

    The Good: A mostly entertaining cast who turned in good performances. I liked what they were trying to do here, even if the execution fell short. The scenes that I found to be amusing were very very amusing.

    The Bad: For starters, Jesse Eisenberg is beginning to be the same guy in every movie and is starting to feel like a one
    dimensional actor. The film itself seemed to struggle with it's identity and flip flopped from comedy to drama and back again repeatedly. It is fine for a screwball comedy to attempt to have some heart, but the delivery for this film was flawed and it felt forced. Scenes and lines felt completely random and confusing as they tried ever so hard to make this more than it was. Expand

    Acquires a little vigor and some fun from Tracy Morgan as a friendly drug dealer who lives with his mom.

    Why Stop Now? feels trapped in the limbo between comedy and drama where many indies gamely venture, but from which few emerge with any resonance.

    This comic drama tries too hard to serve up a slice of manic life, but Eisenberg, along with Tracy Morgan and Isiah Whitlock Jr. as the affable druggies, provides some spark.
