Loved this. Hilarious. Tons of heart. No cliche downfall of the Star, just a fun ride. The cast is great, Eddie is at his best, but Wesley Snipes stood out the most for me. Highly recommend.

A wholesome, feel-good delight.

It's such a shame this film will be overshadowed by dull, overwrought and award-vehicle bio-pics in the coming months. I hope I'm wrong, as this is the film that shows the genre can be great too.
