REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie can't really kill Bono..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
“..dialogue is occasionally sharp, even genuinely funny at times, but not often enough to support the farcical antics of the last act..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
“..the migraine of a story arc needed sharp comedy reflexes..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
