It’s a Fiasco

16 Oct

What a bummer when one of your favorite filmmakers makes a bad movie.

And yet, that’s exactly what Cameron Crowe has done with Elizabethtown. It’s miscast, poorly acted, overly long, and just not good.

If you’ve seen it, say it with me: the film is a fiasco.

Perhaps the only good thing about it is the soundtrack, which includes Elton John’s “My Father’s Gun” and one of my recent favorite songs, I Nine’s “Same in Any Language.”

But even despite that, I give the film a D. That’s D for disappointment.
