The people referring to this as being boring and unwatchable must be the same crowd that tuned into the Sopranos to see who got whacked without the ability to comprehend the shows artistic depth and story.
These ignorant minds should just stick to your 1-star horror flicks and mindless action films to save themselves the disappointment- Stallone has a new gem coming out, go see that. Haha

The major problem with this movie is the fact that the beginning is so choppy in its time line that by the time is starts to get good you are bored and checking your watch. The ending was weird and there were parts that could have been edited out since they didn't add anything to the film itself. Also I couldn't help but be distracted by the amount of smoking that went on. Sad to say but the most interesting character in the whole movie is Grace's sister Joy and she doesn't get enough screen time.

As a series pilot, NFW was pretty good. As a movie, not so much. I expected a lot from this, being a Chase fan and having started a band in 1964 after the Beatles arrived. The acting was so-so, the editing was clumsy and the story moved like a pinball. On the plus side, some of the vignettes were spot on (especially the family scenes) and the warm glow of confusion of trying on a music career was captured accurately.
