Grittier east coast version of American Graffiti in the 60's. Following your dream through the eyes of a drummer of a start up band that eventually fails yet ends with the start of a new dream that hopefully isn't as tortuous. David Chase, Sopranos' creator, made this movie so expect nostalgia and a heavy handed message.

It was entertaining, but by the end of the film I was thinking what was the point of the movie. Up front the movie tells you that this film is about the band that failed, that didn't make it. And it finishes that way. I get the feeling the filmmaker was trying to say more with this film, something profound about life. Not sure what it was. It succeeds at evoking an era, but that's about it. If you loved the music and the cultural milieu of the time you might enjoy this, but as a story with a plot and characters, I don't think it succeeded very well. Was it supposed to be about the arrogance of youth? Beats me. Mildly entertaining.

I guess somewhat wealthy kids grew up different in the 60's in New Jersey. Not my high school/college days. The music is fun, , the story line horrid.

An entertaining slice of life film concerning a teen who grows up wanting to become a rock star with his friends and band mates.

Did not expect much from this film, even though was produced by Steven van Zandt (Underground Garage). Better than I thought. Music was fantastic, and the covers of Time Is On My Side and Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore were terrific. Lead John Magaro has a great voice. Some good acting, mostly not. Worth seeing and listening to. Brings back memories for some of us.
