Rock the Kasbah is a strange mix
5 second plot: Bill Murray is a rock tour manager who hasn't been very successful lately. Destiny brings him to Afghanistan where he discovers a young woman with a beautiful voice. Now all he's got to do is defy all the local traditions, get his new talent on TV and not get everyone killed in the process.
5 second review: The mix of fact and fiction; humor and social comment is sometimes confusing. He might be a smooth talker, but no way he could convince anyone this easy in real life. Bill Murray is great (so is everyone else as a matter of fact; even Bruce Willis). It's the kind of role where he gets to say 'I'm not a loser; I'm a quitter' without even blinking.
IMDb score: 5,3/10
