Aubrey Plaza's worst performance

Actually, i'm a big fan of her but she acts incredibly poor in this movie. May be, it is a casting issue, because you can't cast aubrey plaza into an anne hathaway role. Plaza is chaotic, unpredictable and creepy in a funny way. I don't understand why she accepted an ivy league graduated-daddy issued-coorporate girl part. And she really couldn't act through that boring character with some mediocre dialogues.

Script is boring, movie is really bad. Michael Caine is incredible as always. I really needed some fun but this movie is far from it.

Why all the negative reviews? Another future Classic

I have just finished watching this movie, and anything with Michael Caine in his winter years is worth seeing, his characters played over the decades has appealed to audiences across generations.

I didn't honestly feel this was time lost and enjoyed his latest performance, and all the character actors in the movie didn't disappoint,there have been several publisher movies over the past decades,with different themes,with the American ideal, all about the bucks, this particular work had that varnish sprinkled with pathos and humor.

Should have been so much better

Movie review: Best Sellers

IN A NUTSHELL: In a last-ditch effort to save the boutique publishing house her father has left her after his death, an ambitious young editor goes on a book tour with an aging, bitter, and boozy author who was one of the first writers to put the publishing house on the map. The film is directed by Lina Roessler and written by Anthony Grieco.

THINGS I LIKED: As an author and an author coach, I simply had to watch this movie. I was curious to see what they were going to do with the story and with the legendary Sir Michael Caine. By the way, in order to properly pronounce his name with is own accent, say "My Cocaine." ha ha It sounds just like him, right?

Great opener with the cat and introduction to Sir Michael Caine's crusty character.

The cast also includes Aubrey Plaza, who gives a mature performance, and Ellen Wong as the faithful employee.

Didn't everyone fall in love with Cary Elwes after watching The Princess Bride? Sadly, he's only in one tiny scene in the film.

There are some tender, touching moments.

THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE: Considering the movie is about literature, the writing is surprisingly pedestrian and disappointing.

I hate watching people smoke and drink themselves to death.

There are some bad, shallow acting moments, none by Sir Michael Caine, of course.

Super cheesy music.

Extremely predictable.

Some side storylines completely disappear with no resolution.

TIPS FOR PARENTS: English and British profanity, including F-bombs (spoken and written) A man urinates in public A man flips the bird You see a woman throw up Drunken, selfish, indulgent behavior Lots of alcohol
