"This movie is really insufferable, It says it is based on a story by Mark Twain, I picture him vomiting in his grave. The writing is dreadful, the acting is bad, I never thought it would be painful to watch Robert Downey, Jr. but this movie can't even show off his talents. Anthony Michael Hall , with his pineapple jello salad hair, is unbearable,...
You need a one to five turd rating for movies like this. And I'll give it the full compliment of turds. There is no excuse for crap like this."
Is there anything that Anthony Michael Hall *can't* do?!

"I am speechless! Wait no I'm not! I love this movie! It is hysterical! I loved everything about it! AMH is brilliant! You have to love the story and the man can actually sing. If you love some of the songs in the film like "What U Feel" (the song you hear over and over again in the film) and "Crazy World" then look around to find AMH's album, (Oh yes, he has an album out) It's called Hall of Mirrors: Welcome to the Hall of Mirrors, and it features those tracks as well as others that just rock! I love the little things in this film! Like the jail scene! When Julius is in the jail cell with Judd Nelson and the two others, take a look behind them to see what is written on the wall. It says " A.M.H. + BUBBA " I almost fell off my seat when I saw that! It's just the little things tossed into each scene that makes this film a classic for me! Watch the little smirks AMH tosses around, or those blues bug out every once in a while. Robert Downey Jr. gives a very funny performance. You have to love seeing Downey Jr. and AMH back together again. They had such great chemistry in Johnny Be Good, it's great to see them together. They work so well off of each other, ever watch the two on SNL in the 80's?! Okay, I am done rambling! Buy this film! Find AMH's album, kick it to track one, "What U Feel", crank it to maximum volume and shake the neighborhood! If you are looking for a ridiculous film to watch, a movie to just make you laugh..this is the movie for you!"
Just this side of greatness.

"Funny, silly, and creative. This film aspires not to conform to the 'norm' of Hollywood's traditional comedies. AMH does a great job of lending his musical talents to the film. "Love Is" totally blew me away! Robert Downey Jr's performance in the film is truly hilarious. The "Mailboy who would be King"! While this film in no way takes itself seriously, it is seriously silly and a good choice for a light-hearted comedy."
