I saw the feel bad movie of the year last night. Aside from strong performances by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke (and Albert Finney's eyebrows) and a clever shuffled-sequence story-telling method, the movie was kind of pointless. So a corollary of the Eddie & the Cruisers rule (sometimes bad elements add up to a satisfying movie), is that sometimes a great director + great actors + a serviceable idea = dud.
