Their chemistry here was really enjoyable and it made the movie worthwhile in the end.

The bear also showed an empty beaker labelled silence.

Too slow for me I couldn't finish it, wrong role for Ice Cube this movie is terrible!!

Very predictable storyline!

Lets putted this way my wife loves movies about music like A star is born, Pitch perfect and others, she found this movie stupid and boring.

Definitely worth watching!!

On a more tangential note I have had a recurring thing happen when I watch movies that are so mind nummingly safe and dull that I end up rewriting it in my head to come up with something so much better, It really makes me wonder if I can come up with these interesting ideas, why can't the people who are actually working the industry?!

I like the acting but the storyline was bland, if you see this movie good if you don't you're not missing anything great.

Oher then that I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to be worth a viewing.

Great acting, some nice unexpected touches and very entertaining.

Don't waste your time.

Great premise for a story that included more variables than the typical comeback cliche.

I like Traci, but it was sooo slow!

Great entertaining film with beautiful music and amazing chemistry between Kelvin and Dakota.

Highly Entertaining .

They could have used this angle as away of exploring the struggles of what happens working your way up contrasting of what happens when you've made it and your no longer relevant, but the movie ditches that and instead becomes a predictable and bland look at the music world that not only rings false but hits every trope, cliche and story beat you would expect.

I think most of these errors could have had more slack by me, but they are magnified by the very slow pace this movie takes.

Very entertaining

To help break up the monotony there are some romantic parts, but the comedy was the more engaging part to liven up the movie with Ice Cube's part being the main chuckle fest in his delivery and timing, though his scenes did get a little old after some time.

Very Slow.

Don't waste your time or money.

This movie was extremely enjoyable.

Even though "The High Note" is incredibly predictable, it's sure-fire soundtrack and delightful performances will keep you watching until the end.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

It really has potential but it was just over the top cliché.

"The High Note" could've more way more original but a formulaic Hollywood plot is what stops this film from being a great one.

Just too slow .

A beautiful entertaining film about fulfilling your dreams.

Thoroughly Enjoyable .

The movie was ok, but I was disappointed by the slow pace and the irony of a film about "real" music having some pretty obvious auto tuning.

Several poorly edited scenarios dampened the movie exuberance but it's still worth watching!
