Everything good in this shallow, California-dreamin' indie belongs to the sexy, worldly-wise performance of Frances McDormand, a record producer as famous for her sex life as for her musical hits. Everything irritating is condensed into the fussy performances of Christian Bale and Kate Beckinsale as the rock mama's priggish adult son and his even more humorless, whining fiancee. Chill, kids.
