No, it really is. I would not even have given it one star if the program would have let me. Its really bad. There is no plot and it drags. Actually, I don't know how I got to the end. Probably because I was on the phone!
Pretty mediocre stuff.

Drew Baylor is a seemingly successful 27 year old who is fired from his job at a shoe firm after an unsuccessful product launch costs the company almost a billion dollars. On the verge of suicide, he learns that his father has died and he must fly to Elizabethtown Kentucky to organize the funeral. Overall the film doesn't have much of a plot; it's a collection of small moments involving Drew's relationship with the Kentucky branch of his family, his relationship with a flight attendant named Claire who he meets on his flight to Kentucky, as well as a glimpse of his mother and sister dealing with his fathers death. But the heart of the story is about a good but slightly inept man who learns to grow up and face the world. All in all, despite the film's clever one liners and quirky humour, things really don't get going, and Orlando Bloom shows yet again he's not a particularly good actor.
