    Story Falls Short of Expectation

    Much like Bill Murray's character in this movie, director Barry Levinson has seen better days for hits. Murray plays a has-been rock manager who finds himself stranded in Afghanistan, where he discovers a local woman with a beautiful voice. Despite cultural taboos, he sets out to make her a star. This movie is a full-on Murray vehicle and if you're a fan, that's all you need. It's obvious that this is directed by a seasoned filmmaker: it's fully competent, but the script lacks many genuine laffs (and the resolution is left unsatisfactorily unexplained). Lively energy, but falls flat more often than not.

    Great movie; however I purchased disc specifically for the Digital Copy. No digital card enclosed to facilitate download; I have spent over a month trying to resolve with manufacturer. It appears that the disc might have been returned and restocked without the vendor realizing the card was missing. Recommend the movie but will not be buying another disc from BB.

    Murray portrays a self-appointed perfect "ear" of a talent agent and carries on with repeated stories of celebs and great musical finds. When he ends up out of luck in the Middle East after his talent ran away with his present riches and future jobs, he finds talent in a young girl who is forbidden to even exhibit her talent to anyone but herself and her "God".

    I say if you're a Bill Murray fan then you should check out this movie. If you love old Murray -- most notably Stripes -- then I think you'll enjoy this. Its not bad. There are some bizarre characters and scenes that don't feel fleshed out, but it's Murray being Murray. What else could you ask for?

    I love Bill Murray. I'm a fan of many of his movies - Ghostbusters, Zombieland, Stripes, Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, etc. but this movie just wasn't very funny. It starts off pretty good but loses steam quickly. Great cast, but definitely falls short.

    This is classic Bill Murray acting. The cameo actors were great in the movie. I thought the story was well written too. It was a great choice of songs in the movie and the vocals were excellent. irecommend this movie to all of my friends,
