In this movie, struggling author Bradley Cooper plagiarizes a brilliant novel and then feels bad about the consequences. I feel bad about the consequences, too.

The latest entry in the Bradley Cooper Horror Show series gets a wide release on Friday, September 7. The film is rated PG-13, for emotional and dramatic unbearability. Click here for local showtimes and tickets, if you’re looking to ruin your weekend.
