Like Music and Lyrics, this film is about the comeback of a has-been who had been unceremoniously dumped from his fledging rock band, and had to wait 20 years for his next big break, even if it means getting his big break through a band half his age. Similarly, the film contains some wonderful rock tunes that would float your boat, together with some insane slapstick comedy moments (puke in pockets anyone?) and one which just brings on the laughs, involving some post-performance sweaty shirts.
A pity that this film never really had a chance to hit the big screens here, so if you're in the mood for some comedy and rock, you have to make a beeline for your nearest neighbourhood video store to get your hands on the discs.
