Bill Murray is electric as Richie Lanz, a has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California who stumbles upon a great female singer, Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), in a remote Afghan cave.
Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protegee into becoming the “Afghan Star.”
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! It has a very nice balance of comedy and drama. It’s almost a complete return to sharp witted comedy for Bill Murray.
I highly recommend renting it, streaming it and/or buying it.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give Rock The Kasbah 9.5 tasty tamales!😎
