A well-made Cameron Crowe film - cant crow (sic!) about its brilliant script or intelligent camera work - but being an ex-rock journalist, you can be assured of some good music being swung into the script. For Orlando Bloom's character: its part self-discovery (loses millions of $ in a shoe fiasco and contemplates suicide), part family crisis (father dies, to cremate or not?), part romance (Kirsten Dunst saves him from death?). Bloom does a reasonable job making it a fairly good watch actually.
