david prown 120"Danny Collins" is a movie I wanted to see because of the cast (Al Pacino, Annette Benning  and Christopher Plummer…plus Jennifer Garner and Bobby Cannavale) as well as some sort of  loose story line tie to John Lennon.

I actually had a pretty low expectation of the movie because nobody seemed to be  talking about it.

Folks, if you simply lower the bar and accept the script as simply a movie, it is a very  nice, fun and yes a bit moving of a movie. How this film got the rights to Lennon music  is unknown to me (I'm not a researching type reviewer) but anytime I'm listening to the  magic of his music I'm pretty darn happy.

Movie was light, multi generational and worked for me in an entertainment sort of way.  I got my moneys worth and always happy to watch films that "are not" TOO LONG and pulls  at the heartstrings. The main story line and the side stories, though hollywood like, work  and support well.
