Who's in It:
Harry Belafonte, Joy Bryant, Nick Cannon, Emilio Estevez, Laurence Fishburne, Brian Geraghty, Heather Graham, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt, Joshua Jackson, Ashton Kutcher, Shia LeBeouf, Lindsay Lohan, William H. Macy, Svetlana Metkina Demi Moore, Freddy Rodriguez, Martin Sheen, Christian Slater, Sharon Stone, Elijah Wood
The Basics: It's not about the assassination of Robert Kennedy, just in case you were thinking otherwise. I mean, yes, you see him in archival footage and the whole movie hinges around that event, but it's actually about the 75 other people in the movie, a bunch of late '60s "types" and their minor-league problems.
What's the Deal? For me, this whole movie is about the magic of Kutcher as Hippie Drug Dealer who keeps saying, "What are you looking for?" to LeBeouf and Geraghty, two young Democrats who have recently dropped acid for the first time with Ashton's help. And my adoration for the moment is because of his long hippie wig and headband that someone bought at a costume shop. It seriously makes his whole performance.
Mrs. Kutcher, Not to Be Outdone: You think they had some headgear in Marie Antoinette? You ain't seen nothin' yet. Moore comes out wearing what may be the MOST INCREDIBLE HAIR OF ALL TIME IN A MOVIE. If they gave Oscars just for fake hair, this football-stadium no, mountain-sized corporation of black curls that juts out from the back of her head would win three of them simultaneously. I don't remember a single other thing about her performance except that she played a drunk and sings "Louie Louie" like it was "Love to Love You, Baby." I realize I'm making this dopey movie that's about practically nothing at all sound tons more exciting than it is, but this wig is too out-of-control to miss.
Co-Starring the Wife of the Producer: Please welcome the dazzling young ingenue Svetlana Metkina. She plays a Czech journalist who wants to interview Kennedy. She's in the movie because her husband, producer Michel Litvak, financed the whole thing. So as you're watching it, you're thinking, "Star, star, star, star, star, star, star, that chick, star, star, star, star
P.S. This is also the movie that William H. Macy publicly insulted Lindsay Lohan about because she'd show up late and behave, in his words, like a "brat." Hollywood never stops being entertaining.
