Twenty something Art (Robert Pattinson) realises that he must take action if he's going to escape his life as a struggling musician in London.

How to Be - Robert Pattinson. I don't know what else to say except its just really bad. Everything about it is bad. Thank god Pattinson has improved.

I really tried but after 20 mins i could'nt watch this. its hard to get into the storyline, Art looks autistic and it just makes you feel so morbid about life. Sorry Robert but it was bad! ( and this comes from a self named Twilight fanatic fan!!!! )

My first thought was it would be good to see Robert Pattinson in a movie other than Twilight... My second thought was 'really bad hair' and my third thought was 'really bad acting'. This is some really bad C grade indie UK movie about some strange guy (Pattinson) who hires the author of a self help book to improve his life. The description says this is a "painfully funny journey about dysfunction, growing up and existential crises". Painful is the operative word. I couldn't wait for this movie to end! I think I am being generous giving it 2 stars!

It cured me of my minor obsession with Robert Pattinson.

I have rarely seen a movie with a lead character I have had less sympathy or fondness for than Art. Self indulgent, insipid, with no sense of reality. Forced myself to sit through this in hope of improvement but it never came. Unless you are watching this just because "R. Patz is sooo hot" you may struggle. Good luck!

I didn't really like this movie. It was slow and boring. I fell asleep a few times during it.
