i saw this film at the premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last night. It was different than I was expecting. I was expecting more of a darker musical/comedy, something along the lines of Almost Famous. I would say it was closer to something along the lines of Mr. Mom. The film was entertaining, but quite formulaic. It really was just another version of the coming of age type film. However, there were some very funny moments and some nice running jokes in the film. The entire cast was great. Billie Joe Armstrong did a great job in his first starring role. He was incredibly likable and <more>
really made you enjoy the character of Perry. I was surprised that the film appears to be geared towards a family film, but it is nice entertainment for everyone and especially any Green Day fans.
Don't have to be a green day fan to enjoy this movie although i am one. But its overall a good movie. It has a great story to it, and it makes you thinks about your life choices and how your life has turned out compared to Perry . Such an underrated movie i would highly recommend it to anyone
