Here, Orlando Bloom bombs at a huge shoe project from the company he works for. He makes the company lose hundreds of millions of dollars, he gets fired, gets dumped by his girlfriend, and his father dies.
Suicidal, he goes back to his town in Kentucky, Elizabethtown, to deal with it all. On the way, he finds Kirsten Dunst.
The reviews said the movie was mediocre at best, and I sort of understand where they come from. There were a few hard to believe, or just tacky, scenes, like the one where Orlando is flying in an empty airplane. However, I liked the movie a lot. It was very entertaining. Orlando and Kirsten were able to keep it together, I thought, and Susan Sarandon (who played Orlando's mom), Alec Baldwin (who plays his boss), Judy Greer (the sister) and the soundtrack provided excellent support.
Maybe it had something to to do with Tom Cruise being one of the producers).
