Lame as it could be.. Aldous Snow has a commercial failure with his song African Child & he is on a breakdown. Aron an employee at pinnacle records ,being a fan of his, has an idea of helping his career get back which would also help pinaccle records get their reputation back too. The stupid journey begins!
The story was nothing special. You have a washed up popstar who thinks he is a rockstar and his ex-girlfriend has more hits than him :D The story was getting nowhere just madness that never stops! Though i lol'd at some points :D
Don't know what director had in mind. the movie was outrageous and pointless. Nick Stoller didn't give a good comedy or he didn't get what he was looking for.
Acting was pretty much better when you compare it with the rest..though outrageous but still jonah hill, rose bryne and the others managed it. But Russell brand was very good as his performance has always been natural..this was the only thing that took the movie to some level.
summing it up...just another pointless comedy that barely passes your time...you might not like it but still you might have some laughs on the way..if you think this is your type of comedy then go for it.
