Million Dollar Hotel--Thumbs up or down?

Not the soundtrack-----just the movie itself.

I watched the whole thing straight through for the first time today (it's on HBO). I haven't decided yet if I like it or not......

What do you think?

I've never made it to the end. It puts me into a deep sleep by 35 minutes in.

Mel Gibson was right when he said that it was as boring as a dog's arse. The soundtrack is good, but the movie is bad. It's unbelievable and that might be its biggest fault.

I wanted to like it, but just couldn't. The music is good though.

I haven't watched it in years, but I remember it being artsy and weird, so it's probably good.

Weird. I love the fifth Beatle guy though! I might use the movie for a project in social psychology...

I did not like it one bit. I couldn't even sit through the commentary, even with Bono's voice coming out of my TV for two hours. I made it about 10 minutes into the commentary and said, "Nope. Not gonna happen."

It took me three days to watch it the single time I attempted it.

I rather liked it. Then again, I have really odd taste in movies.

It's rather normal compared to any John Waters film, and I have his box set.

It's not super great, but it's not total crap either.
