Sweetheart has decided he will stage a massive benefit concert, with the monies going to Sweetheart instead of charity. Sweetheart hires television producer Nina Veronica to help promote the show and sell it as a nation-wide event, while Sweetheart pulls a few strings to arrange for the perfect headliner, Jack Fate.

Dylan's the only thing that keeps this film grounded. While each of the characters do have a strange pretty intense lyrical quality about them, they seem disjointed in the story. There is no cohesiveness to the cast. The film is based in some different time evolution of society, but has the physical markings of present society. The characters, independent of each other, are great. But they never hit me in the solar plexus; they did not make me care if they reached their quest or not. It was almost as if they were as disjointed as the homeless people that were in the beginning of the film. That made it boring to me: waiting for the important "a hah" moment, but Dylan's music kept me watching till the end.

Complete rubbish. How do you take an all star cast and manage to ruin it? Watch this and you will find out.

like Altman's Nashville, a little David Lynch, unique. I avoided this film because I thought it was a vanity piece /excuse for a music legend to wander around on film. (like Elvis) Maybe its the "supporting" cast --the American league all stars--but this is not at all what I expected.one great rif after another--like Jazz solos--the cast is mesmerizing.Also, the writing is really good. sound track also not too shabby.The reunion of the Lebowski team--Bridges and Goodman. One after another-- Kilmer, Rourke, Lange, etc. performance gems.
it's disjointed and has a self-conscious woo-woo mystery, but somehow it doesn't matter.it's like someone else's dream which can be boring except in this case; I guess it depends on whose dream it is.
The only way Dylan is an actor is when he's acting out the character "Bob Dylan" and that is pretty much what he does here. "I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours."
