(nl) wrote: Movie was kinda boring. Nothing really happens except for him hallucinating. The whole clown thing was cool, with all the kids laughing at him while he burns. The ending was good. He killed himself because he was locked up in his apartment for so long.

(de) wrote: The life of one of the wildest Rock and Roll stars of the 1950's, Jerry Lee Lewis. Based on the book by his ex-wife Myra Gale Brown, whose marriage to Lewis would be his ultimate downfall as his star was on the rise. It's a by the numbers biopic, with all the same chiches. But, it's lead performance is engaging. It follows Jerry Lee Lewis (Dennis Quaid) from 1956 to 1958, as his star was on the rise, he'd signed up with Sun Records, owned by Sam Phillips (Trey Wilson). He records hit records such as Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin On, and Great Balls of Fire. But, he falls for his cousin Myra Gale (Winona Ryder) who is only 13, and secretly marries her in Mississippi. His career continues to be successful, but when he goes over to England for a tour, the details of his marriage get out, and the British public condemn him as a child molester, and it follows him back home to America where he becomes more unhinged with alcohol and becomes abusive. It's a good story to make into a film, but it hardly shows Lewis in a good light, despite all the good intentions. It has a good cast though, look out for Alec Baldwin as Lewis' other cousin, preacher Jimmy Swaggart and Peter Cook as the British Reporter who uncovers the illegal marriage.

I haven't seen that many humphrey bogart movies yet but I really,really enjoyed this. and i really like him as an actor. to me he is an icon.Lauren becall is also in this and she gave a good performance too. This movie did a very good job at keeping you in suspense. Very likeable characters as well. I was super impressed with this movie. Very good plot acted out supremely well by all the actors. I hope they have this movie in the classics catagory because that is where it belongs.
