So Uncool

By washingtonpost.com

I saw "Be Cool" last night, and I'm sorry to report that it's most decidedly uncool. In the words of Fred Willard in "A Mighty Wind": "Wha' happened?" There are so many fantastic people in this movie: John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Vince Vaughn, Harvey Kietel, Andre 3000 of Outkast. But everyone looks like they're sleepwalking through this lame, supposed satire of the music business.

The only two people who don't totally humiliate themselves: Cedric the Entertainer and The Rock. Yes, I said The Rock. As for the guys from Aerosmith: If you thought they sold out by letting Cadillac use "Dream On" in its commercials, well, you ain't seen nothin' yet. That's Bachman Turner Overdrive, but you get my point.

If you want to see something good at the movies, you might opt for the Martin Scorsese film festival at the AFI Silver instead. He's one of the finest filmmakers in history, even if Oscar didn't think so.

Umm - Aerosmith sold Dream On to move the Buick Crossfire. LedZep are the ones selling Cadillac. Chrysler bought BTO.
