Some good stuff, and a lot of bad stuff.

Just Because Judd Apatow produces a movie, which really gives him very little artistic pull in the film's making, doesn't mean it's going to be one of the best comedies of the year, such as his director's credits 40-year old virgin, and knocked up. The writers here clearly had a great time with this, but thats basically where the fun ends. The movie tries to be too funny, with almost non-stop randomness and stupidity, sometimes relating to material from Ray and Walk the Line, which this is supposed to spoof. The music can be pretty funny, being almost of Wierd Al comical status, such as 'Let's Duet'. The cameos are usually pretty funny, with everyone from the entire SNL cast to Apatow friends. But none of that can save this stupid romp from being a decent spoof at best, dragged down by bad writing and lots of cox.
