I found this to be truly awful.

So if I consider myself a big Ian Dury fan I should skip seeing this?

It might be worth it just to yell at the screen.

It does that really annoying thing most rock biopics do, focus on melodramatic issues with women, and then the whole subplot about his son doesn't add up to anything.

Andy Serkis might be fine as Gollum, but as a real human being he is drippy and embarrassing. I felt it put a major tarnish on Dury's memory

Is it like the Runaways or Germs movies where all they do is sit around talking about how they're gonna make it?

Didn't see the Runaways, but it was on par with the Germs stinker.

I was disappointed at the standard biopic feel as well. Didn't dislike it as much as Yuck Foo, only in that I found Serkis kinda entertaining in this role - maybe I was just focusing too much on the physical side, which is definitely his talent. Some of the details were a bit off, too; especially bad, since Dury fans are probably the only people who are going to see this.
