Despite its exaggerated nature, I really enjoyed this film. As usual Paul Giamatti performs wonderfully, and the other actors are reasonably enjoyable as well. The soundtrack is amazing and really sets an authentic mood for the film. The comedy is very good at times, and I must say I also enjoyed the story. I don't see why this film seems so unliked, because I really like it.
