The facts in this pop biography are often hopelessly askew, but the story is carried by the unadulterated power of Gary Busey's original and insightful performance.

The plotting of this 1978 biopic is contrived, and director Steve Rash's feeling for Buddy Holly's time and place is virtually nil, but Gary Busey's performance is astonishing-less as an interpretation than as a total physical transformation. Full Review

It's Gary Busey's galvanizing solo performance that gives meaning to an otherwise shapeless and bland feature-length film about the American rock-and-roll star who was killed in a plane crash in 1959. Full Review

An extraordinary performance by Gary Busey as the early rock'n'roll star gives life to this otherwise ordinary film. Full Review
People Magazine

The film is an entertaining chronicle of Holly's brief but productive and influential career as a pioneering rock 'n' roll composer and singer. Full Review
Washington Post

This really is a remarkable re-creation of a singer whose skill with music placed him in the same category as The Beatles a few years later. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

With a groundbreaking combination of country music and rhythm & blues, Buddy Holly and the Crickets catapulted to national stardom in just three short years with such hits as "That'll Be the Day," "It's So Easy," and "Peggy Sue." By the age of 22, Holly had it all: chart-topping singles, a beautiful wife, and international acclaim until tragedy ended a brilliant career but not his music.
