    My whole adulthood life I’ve been told I resemble Nick Cage… Didn’t mean I liked him or all of his movies, very few as a matter of fact. But this one was great! It’s a must watch!
  • Nick F***innnnng OW Whoo Cage!

    Nick Cage is the man. Very entertaining movie. I didn’t want it to end. It definitely could have been longer. Makes me want to search for a Nick Cage documentary.
  • Not good

    Did not make through 1/2 hour. Rotten tomatoes ratings are horrible.
  • Exactly what you need

    I liked the first half more than the second but if you’re a Cage fan, you’re gonna watch it regardless.
  • Nicolas Cage is back!

    By MikeAudiDriver
    What an awesome film. Very entertaining and highly recommend viewing. Rented through Redbox DVD and best $1.99 spent in awhile. Must see!
  • Actors should not play themselves.

    By boilerfan1
    Very tough to get over Cage playing himself in this movie.
  • Mehhh… it was ok.

    The best part was when they took some LSD and drove into town. Everything else was pretty boring and uneventful. Something about CIA and drug lords or something. The plot was nothing we haven’t seen a billion times already. I couldn’t finish it. I bet Nicolas Cage really likes this movie. It’s an homage to his entire life as an actor and how it affects his personal life. But who else really cares?
