Audience Reviews for Johnny Suede

  • May 24, 2012
    Johnny Suede, a young man with a freakishly large pompadour (Brad Pitt), tries to pay the rent, keep a girlfriend, and make it as a musician in the big city. Suede, who's stuck in the 1950s and not entirely sympathetic, is an interesting character but the script doesn't give him much of interest to do. Quirky casting (Tina Louise and Nick Cave in small roles) helps a little but not enough.

    Lackluster early Pitt star effort about the attempts of yet another drifter trying to make it in New York. I'll bet he'll be lucky if some legit broad, say like Cat Keener maybe, can find it in her heart to put up with his delusions of grandeur.

    Though Pitt puts on a particularly good performance to accompany some good songs and other high points, "Johnny Suede" still isn't the most solid movie in the world. It's underdeveloped, drawn out and also suffers from some cliches, melodrama, forced story turns and a deal of other cons. In the end, "Johnny Suede" has little in it, but still makes for a resonably fair time-killer and starring debut for Brad Pitt.

    Fail... just boring and time wasting.
