Actor/director's Spacey's attempt to set legendary singer Bobby Darin's short life into some kind Fosse-esque set piece-led musical drama is both admirable and being very guilty of the label 'vanity project'. But Spacey hoofs, winces and generally acts his heart out through a series of pretty impressive sequences - shame about Paul 'Quiz Show' Attanasio and Lorenzo 'Sleepers' Carcaterra's cheeseball of a script. Still, a revealing (overlong) slice of musical history.
