Sheen and Spall are brilliant, as is Colm Meaney. Throw a well done script and excellent direction and you have an great film, although it does assume you know something about the subject matter.

Selena Gomez's character is the only character with any character sympathy and she is gone half way through, so your left with characters you don't care about heading to a predictable (if unbelievable) ending. Also a study in how not sexy gratuitous nudity can be. Of interest only to pervs looking to see Hudgens naked.

Bad script, written by someone who lacks life experiences (or so it seems). Wasted talent. I also love how Adam (the musician love interest who claims the Ramones were a big influence, yet you can't hear it in his music) only has to play a song to bring her back, but her little brother struggling doesn't. Enough plot holes to think someone shotgun blasted it. Maybe they did.
