“..there's nothing inherently flawed about this nomadic and potentially life-affirming narrative, but Rosenbaum manages to instill every moment on the road with a sense of shrill conventionality..”
by Glenn Heath Jr. [Slant Magazine]
“..presents artistic self-destruction with the solemnity of a movie that has invented a spanking-new genre..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]
1.5 of 5

“..is so shamelessly cliche, so captivated by nostalgia that one can mistake the film's ignorance for well-intentioned earnestness -- a Dewey Cox story without all the humorous self-reflexivity..”
by Sam Kressner [Filmcritic.com]
“..is 10 tracks of cliches, dutifully trading in drugs, daddy issues, attempted suicide, gunfights, hotel trashings, regret, artistic and romantic jealousy, betrayal, ecstasy, and tragedy..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
“..a limp piece of fan fiction about a fictional rock band's heyday and decline..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
