Talk about a fiasco of mythic proportions. And I like Cameron Crowe. There are some charming ideas here, the soundtrack’s not too shabby, and every now and then the dialogue twinkles… but holy shit is this movie tedious and neverending. Nothing’s earned, nothing’s believable, and every single scene goes on for way too long. OK, so it’s romantic if Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst have an all-night cell phone call… but did we have to witness it in real time?
