(Review originally written at 5 December 2004)

First of all, I hate jazz! I truly can't stand it and I actually questioned myself whether I should watch this movie or not, since I knew that it was about a fictional jazz musician. I'm glad that I eventually decided to watch this movie after all. I liked the movie and even the music!

The movie really is a light and easy to watch movie, unlike many other biopics. But then again "Sweet and Lowdown" isn't a movie that tries to be serious, the main character is fictional and lot's of humor is present, which makes this movie an excellent pleasant 95 minutes to kill some time with.

Sean Penn is once more doing a great job and his performance on his own is already a reason to go and watch this movie.

Nothing special, just an enjoyable easy to watch little movie.
