Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story

Like a warped fun-house mirror, the song-poem industry has run parallel to the mainstream music business for close to a century; it's estimated that over 200,000 song-poems have been recorded since 1900. The genre's durability can be traced to three of our deepest American desires - to be in show business, to get rich quick, and to share and express our deepest feelings. We meet several of the "songwriters" - from an elderly woman to a young African-American man to a small-town Iowan with big-time dreams - each of whom has been in the "business" for awhile, churning out odd compositions that cover the waterfront of American obsessions, from Jesus to genitalia, from politics to Elvis. We also meet the producers (often known as song-sharks) who hold out the tantalizing promise of fame to their eager customers, and the has-been musicians who sit in studios, day after day and year after year...

Gautham R (au) wrote: I'd say about 25% of this movie made me smile...85% of what worked was Aubrey Plaza...10% was Anna Kendrick....the rest of it was everybody(Kumail was solid as always)

Di C (fr) wrote: This one stayed with me long after the final credits. Less an apocalypic tale, more a man learning too late the priorities of life. And impressive acting by his young life-coach.

Aurlie J (fr) wrote: moi j'ai bien aim les 2nd rles... Luchini en Csar, Dany Boon, Lemercier, Grard Jugnot,... des petits rles, mais ils sont pas mal ;-)

Andrew H (br) wrote: Worst film I've seen in a ages, awful special effects, terrible storyline and little plot.

Ryan B (nl) wrote: I think the entire purpose of making this movie was to see how many parents, desperate to make money off their "child actor", were willing to submit their kids to intense vulgarity.

Wes S (gb) wrote: recommended by mvieaddict

Dominic L (ag) wrote: The CGI is great why did they not make the first two like this they would of been so much better. I did not think this film would be so good but I was proved wrong.

Ken S (ag) wrote: Woody Allen makes a musical! And it is a standard effort with songs. The plot is pretty much like most Allen films, and the songs are sung in the actor's real voices to make it sound less glossy and more real...which would seem neat and original had "Popeye" not already done it. Only Barrymore was so bad she had to be dubbed...and that is with Goldie Hawn being told to sing worse because she sounded to good. It is decent, I enjoyed this enough, it at least had the musical aspect to set it apart from other Allen films, but it's plot is well-worn territory for the Writer-Director.

Deborah W (us) wrote: Watched this movie and was crying to beginning to end!!! I recommend it to every one!

Andrew L (au) wrote: Not as good as first film, but goes in the right direction in terms of villains and portraying Superman in a human light with his wants and desires etc

MF J (fr) wrote: It's more of an exercice of style than an actual film but it's interesting if you are looking at films that do not play the usual straight forward storyline. The soundtrack is excellent.
