Almost Famous review

Review of Almost Famous

"Almost Famous" was almost a really good movie, but the whole thing was a little too fluffy to be fully believable. It seems that the band members - and the tag-alongs - would have been strung out on drugs. But other than that, it was a pretty good flick. It's fairly well known that director Cameron Crowe loosely based the story on his experiences covering a band's tour for Rolling Stone magazine. One thing that I couldn't quite understand is why, when the movie came out, a lot of people told me that the boy reminded them of me. Okay, so he had a different take on everything; that seems like a bit of a stretch. But either way, "Almost Famous" is worth seeing, with fine performances from Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, Jason Lee, and newcomer Patrick Fugit.
