It actually wasn’t bad, and it was good to see the guy from Sweet Home Alabama finally gave up on that whole sand/lightning/sculpture business and became a doctor. It was also good to see how easily he gave up. And how easily it was for whats-his-face to walk away from a great job in the middle of his contractual obligations.
But what I DIDN’T like was the Taken By Trees cover of Guns n’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” close the movie. It made me was to kick-punch. Not sure why.
It did bring to mind — in a totally opposite way — the excellent cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” that appears in The Social Network soundtrack. That version is by Scala & Kolacny Brothers, a Belgian girls choir.
Which begs a larger question: Why is one cool and one make me do the kick-punch? What are the rules of “the cover”? Hmmm … maybe I should ponder this for later.
Or you could just tell me now below.
