Reviewer’s grade: D
This documentary comes across more like a mockumentary than the latest Christopher Guest film. Too bad it isn’t funny. At all. Following the breakout solo career of Matchbox 20 lead singer Rob Thomas during the writing, recording and release of his album “Something to Be,” this film “ directed by Gillian Grisman and produced by Thomas and his wife, Marisol “ lacks any type of tension, drama or conflict that would make it even somewhat worth watching.
What we get is an hour and 20 minutes of an already platinum-selling and commercially successful musician become even more so. See Thomas impress his record label! See Thomas get a new haircut! See Thomas turn down a Target ad! See Thomas in his giant house! See Thomas become a hit “¦ again!
