Amazing Actor, Amazing Movie

Black's naturally insane methods are what make this movie a winner, and has really good chemistry with pretty much anybody he works/acts/rocks with. Despite the fact that I'm giving this five stars, I believe there is an exact copy of this movie on iTunes for half the price, so go check it out. I honestly have no idea why there is one for $10 and one for $5; I bought the $5 one and it turned out fine, so I don't know what the deal is with that.

Sort of Pricey

Great movie, but it is pretty old and is priced a litlle high


i bought it on my ipod for a long car ride and ended up just watching it all the time!!! i have watched it a million times and it is still entertainning!!!!! If you were to get tired of the movie...... you can always just wait for the musical parts and listen to those!!!!!
