I would not say this movie is "bad" but I will say that the director is little retarded in my opinion. He might have thought making a huge star cast list would take the movie to a next level but it ain't happening. I loved the music so much plus the promos and all but 3:30 hrs of goddam boring stories will kill me, seriously!
And, yes I would recommend this movie to my friends just because to let them see/know pretending to be at the top will sink you. Haha.
