Corey B (fr) wrote: Zemeckis' first film is a fun, fast paced, manic look at Beatlemania from multiple character perspectives. Some of the stories are better than others, and the movie can come across as shrill sometimes (there's only so many shots of girls screaming one person can take), but Zemeckis keeps everything lively, and he and Bob Gale's script has a lot of fun little touches.

Brendan R (jp) wrote: Some parts were interesting, but the movie never really caught my attention. Had trouble focusing throughout and left with a definite "So what?" feeling.

Kwynn P (br) wrote: ehh.. a depressed doris day is just depressing..and while many may think that means she played her role left, it instead left me as limp as she was lifeless. i also have a problem with ruth etting's blatant and unackowleding theft of jazz, blues and spirituals

Art S (ag) wrote: Lon Chaney is absorbing and creepy as a wronged and humiliated scientist turned masochistic circus clown (yes, you read that correctly) in this early silent film from new studio MGM. Even behind his make-up Chaney burns with an intensity that lifts the movie beyond its revenge/love triangle plot. Swedish director Victor Sjstrm (later the star of Bergman's Wild Strawberries) keeps things moving with deft editing and some odd set-pieces. For example, there is a recurring motif of a clown spinning a globe, no doubt reflecting the fickle vagaries of fate. Although things drag when Chaney is not on-screen and the movie shifts to Norma Shearer and John Gilbert professing their love (even while her father sells her to the wicked Baron, ironically the man who stole Chaney's scientific ideas and slapped him in the first place, in front of the Academy no less), the conclusion is effectively downbeat. If only the weird business of the slaps was foregrounded a bit more, this could have achieved greater cult status.

Andruw F (ru) wrote: This movie is such a mess! I think it could have been better if the writing and directing weren't as bad as they are. Aside from one moment where you think it's going to get good, the whole movie is bad, too long, and boring. The writing is terrible, and the story they have written moves too fast and yet doesn't move very far. The directing is even worse! It rushes the good parts, and slows down the bad parts, and you can REALLY tell how rushed it is when Rory goes from getting a publisher, to being famous, in about a minute. If they hadn't made that cut, the movie could have been great, and actually be about what it's supposed to be about. The actual writer finds Rory way too early in the movie, and it takes up too much of the runtime with a story from the old man that you don't care about, and is annoying because it's just a way too long way of telling Rory that he is the one who wrote the book. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana are fine, but there not in the movie very much, so you don't really get a chance to see them do well. Dennis Quaid's narration is annoying, mainly because it's overused, but also because his voice is not made for narration. But when we see him, he's fine. And the few scenes he has were pretty good, and they were with Olivia Wilde who did an excellent job. Rory tells his wife to early in the movie, and by that time you just don't care about anything anymore. Granted, the little you did care about, you didn't care about enough for it to matter that you're just now waiting for it to end. Also, by the end, Rory is made to look like he didn't realize what he published wasn't his. This movie is almost wasted potential, but it isn't an original enough idea to be, and is essentially a worse version of Limitless with more characters, and a worse way to get a book written, and it's not even his. It's an awful first time directing, and second time writing, for the duo.
