2/3 a good movie

I liked the first 2 stories in this movie. Both of which could have been good if flushed out to be their own movies. BUT that last act/movie sucked. One could say all 3 acts/movies were cliche'd but the 3rd was the worst. Oh and when you realize how the movie is dragging on you will wish the 3rd act was gone.

Count me among the ones that loved it

Man, what a ride this was. I liken it to a square. You're going along in a straight line, you think you know what the story is and where it's going, then all the sudden BAM!! 90 degree turn, now we are going down a different road. You start to get a handle on things, you get comfortable again, "ok, two stories in one I get it", still not sure if you like either one all that much, then all the sudden BAM!! 90 degree turn again! Now you are expecting the unexpected, they aren't going to hit you again, but you know you gotta get back to where you started right? BAM! One final turn to take you to the home stretch, suddenly you're not in the theater anymore, your in Schenectady, NY, and you're just looking around, wondering what they'll bring you next. I know it's probably not for everybody, it gets tough to follow at times and you may get mad at it once in a while. At the end of the day though you were very entertained, that's how it was for me at least.......

Beautifully Sad

The movie was perfectly pensive, introspective, and so sad. It shows different perspectives on how our choices shape us, and the next generation. The acting was incredible, especially Brady Cooper's performance. Wow. Not a need-to-see-at-the-theatre movie, but the music at that volume/proximity was moving. Overall a beautifully sad film.

Garbage!!!!

Such a waste of a film in money and talent.. Did not care for the characters to show you how bad this film is. Terrible Directing, Producing and dialogue. I agree 100% with Chicago Sun TImes review. Please read before u see this. Love the actors but they could not save this film..

It was worth seeing. It was a little different side of Ryan Gosling than I've seen in other movies.
