Why Stop Now
Plot: An aspiring concert pianist tries to get his mother to check into rehab but needs Tracy Morgan's help.
This was the first of five Jesse Eisenberg movies I watched in a row. Call it a mini-Eisenberg film festival if you want to. I don't even know why I watched this one, but Batman v Superman happened the next day, so I decided to get a streak going.
In this movie, Jesse Eisenberg is out-acted by a sock puppet on the hand of a little girl named Emma Rayne Lyle who can't act. Tracy Morgan plays a drug dealer named Sprinkles.
And that's really all you need to know about this movie that I'm likely going to forget that I even watched in a year or two.
But hey, is that really Eisenberg playing the piano in this thing? It certainly appears to be, but I can't believe anything I see in movies these days. The special effects have gotten too tricky. If that's him, he's pretty good.
Here's what his hair looks like in this movie. He also dons a Jesus jacket at one point. I can't be the only person who alternates between liking Eisenberg and wanting to punch this guy in the face, can I?
