    There's a good film here but it's buried under all the things that I dislike about Baz Luhrmann's style. I don't think this needed to be as maximalist as this was, the editing was weird and felt way too fast paced and all over place while simultaneously it felt like it had gone on for way too long (almost three hours!)

Charlie Sheen pretty much just plays himself. Jason Schwartzman was kind of fun in it at least.
