Cameron Crowe got the critical bashing of his life yesterday when the review embargo broke for his latest, “Aloha.” In his D+ review for Indiewire, Greg Cwik called the romantic comedy “achingly bad,” citing that “Crowe seems to have expunged all evidence of his distinctive filmmaking talents… as though the director has been completely reborn as a hack.” Other critics agree; just check out its Rotten Tomatoes score.

In what’s likely a damage-control move, Sony has posted the first eight minutes of the film online. Watch it above and be the judge as to whether that was a good or bad move on the company’s part.

The extended clip opens much like Crowe’s beloved Oscar-winner “Jerry Maguire,” with a busy voiceover that gets you up to speed with the film’s protagonist (played in “Aloha” by Bradley Cooper). Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams and John Krasinski also feature in the clip. 

“Aloha” is currently playing nationwide.
