This was a good movie. Isn't it partly based on a true story? Some of the characters in the movie were actually real life (ex. Cameron Crowe, Ben Fong-Torres, groupies, etc. ) I don't know if the band was based on an actual seventies group or not. It seemed like a bastardization of a lot of different bands into one.

Well, Mr. Cameron Crowe has said that the character played by Billy Crudup (forgot the character's name), y'know, the guitar player who gets all the attention. Well, anyway, he's based very closely on Glenn Frey of the Eagles. And, yeah, it is kind of a "based on a true story, but not really" kind of thing. Like Primary Colors or 8 Mile. Anywho, great movie that made me want to be a rock journalist, though I'm sure that'll never happen.

Yup-- You know, the character that Philip Seymour Hoffman plays is Lester Bangs, who of course, was a famous seventies rock journalist in real life. The part about him sort-of mentoring William is a fabrication -I'm sure. I doubt Crowe ever knew Lester Bangs or talked to him on the phone back then. ...whateva ...what do you guys think?

I love this movie, is one of my "icon" movies...its great...

Like many others...I would like to be Penny Lane...but the character of Williams sister...Anita Miller is ausumm....because she believes and fights back...its a very good example between Penny Lane that lives the dream...some how away from reality, and Anita, that lives in reality trying to get a little bit closer to her dreams...

Of course Russell Hammond is the best....the "Im a golden god..." scene is outreagous...I would have like the character played by Noah Taylor to have more... I dont know, more story? participation? because he is a very good actor (have seen "flirting", "shine") and he gave his character that tired, practical nice.

"Still water" is a hibrid, of course, has a lot of everything, but the coolest thing is the music written for them..."Fever Dog" is cool, no one could say it was written on 1999....its in the soundtrack, listen to it...very nice.

I love this movie! i think Kate Hudson is excellent in her role and im not easy to please! my favourite scene (probably not everyone's choice) is when Penny Lane overdoses and is havin her stomach pumped and the guy, dammit i cant remember his name.........the little journalist guy, is like in awe of her beauty and in love with her. i just love that part, and of course, the Airplane scene is hilarious!
It had to be such an outrgeous life style, bein in a Rock Band, late 70's. i think it's great that a good movie is out there that portrays this kind of lifestyle and does the era justice!

I LOVE this movie. It's everyone's Rock n Roll fantasy to go on tour with a band and just be a part of it.
Would love to be in Penny Lane's shoes.

Just love it, I never get bored. Can't wait to buy the special edition.
