Thoroughly enjoyable
30 October 2008 | by s-kinsaleSee all my reviews

I was very surprised by this film, given it is incredibly low budget. I thought it was one of the most entertaining films I had seen in a long time. I found it quite funny as well as emotionally engaging. The script was far superior to many expensive Hollywood movies I have seen this year; there were some witty one-liners and it was consistently engaging. On the face of it, this is a movie targeting gen Y; it is about two friends who form a band and the roller coaster they experience when they "make it". However it seems to have crossover appeal to a much wider audience. The music is cool. I came with modest expectations but did not feel that any part lagged.
