surprised to love it

Let me say right off that I do not much care for Phillip Seymore Hoffman, tho that may be heresy to some of you. Nevetheless, I absolutely loved this movie and him in it. Truthfully, I laughed, I cried and I cheered and applauded, alone in my living room. That's how much I liked it. The music is GREAT, the acting is wonderful, the humor is both dry and broad, and it makes you feel good at the end. If you love rock and roll, you will love this movie!!
