A friend from work who spends over $1K a year on movie tickets and has over 300 dvds said it was worsr than the second and that one was pretty bad. Another friend who saw it at Newport and got punched several times in the back from a guy he woke up when he left for the bathroom ( I think it's included in the price of admission) said it was good. Go figure! Maybe getting punch adds to the experience? I would advise everyone to see the movie with Jackson Browne.
