There will be plenty going on during the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), and the makers of "Corner Gas: The Movie" want to add to the fun by inviting the public to star in their flick.

The catch? You have to sing.

With Tiff in full swing, the people behind the big-screen adaptation of the Canadian television favourite will host a "Corner Gas Sing-a-Long Booth" at the intersection of Queen and John Streets, outside CTV's headquarters, from Sept. 4 to 13, said a Wednesday news release.

People will be invited to sing the show's theme song "Not a Lot Goin' On" karaoke-style, with the help of scrolling lyrics.

Singers' voices will then be mashed up and played over the end credits, while a number of people's videos will be shown in theatres, online and on a collectors' edition DVD.

TV Land Cancels Kirstie Alley Sitcom Kirstie After One Season
It looks like Kirstie Alley’s sitcom comeback is going to be short-lived.

TV Land has canceled Kirstie after just one season, our sister site Deadline is reporting.

The sitcom — which co-starred fellow sitcom vets Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards — found Alley playing Maddie Banks, a Tony Award-winning actress whose life was turned upside down upon the discovery of her long-lost son Arlo (played by Eric Peterson).

Canadian sitcom Corner Gas for movie spin-off

Canadian sitcom Corner Gas for movie spin-off
Canadian sitcom Corner Gas is set to get a film spin-off.

The show, which ran for six seasons, was the top-rated sitcom in Canada with a record-breaking three million people watching the series finale in 2009.

The film already has funding from Canadian broadcaster Bell Media and film financier Telefilm Canada but is looking for an extra $100,000 from crowd sourcing to fund the spin-off.

Eric Peterson, Janet Wright, Gabrielle Miller, Fred Ewanuick, Lorne Cardinal, Tara Spencer-Nairn and Nancy Robertson are all set to return as their characters.

Writer and star of the show Brent Butt said of the 90-minute project: "I'm excited. The entire gang is back."

'Kirstie' Season 1 finale: Are you hoping for a Season 2?

On paper, "Kirstie" sounded like a coup for TV Land: A Kirstie Alley comeback vehicle that was also a "Cheers" reunion with co-star Rhea Perlman, as well as the TV return of "Seinfeld" legend Michael Richards.

Unfortunately, much of the sitcom's first season was met with a critical "meh." All the comedic talent in the world can't make up for subpar material, it would seem. But where did you land on the series?

Did you enjoy watching Maddie (Alley) reconnect with her long-lost son Arlo (Eric Peterson) while maintaining her Broadway lifestyle? Did Perlman and Richards as her assistant and chauffeur, respectively, inspire hilarity in your household? Are you hoping for a Season 2?

Should TV Land renew "Kirstie" for Season 2?

'Rookie Blue' Season 4, Episode 8: Noelle and Frank's wedding plans go 'For Better, For Worse'

Rarely do things run smoothly for the "Rookie Blue" cops -- even their own nuptials.

Noelle (Melanie Nicholls-King) and Frank's (Lyriq Bent) wedding wasn't exactly like clockwork in Thursday's (Aug. 8) episode of the ABC drama, "For Better, For Worse." Even with the ceremony taking place that evening, much remained in flux, prompting Andy (Missy Peregrym) to try to take the organizational lead. 

Meanwhile, claiming she was getting "lying hives," Chloe (Priscilla Faia) begged Dov (Gregory Smith) to tell Frank -- her godfather and their boss -- about their off-duty relationship. It wouldn't be an easy day for Chloe in another way; she was partnered with angry-as-usual Gail (Charlotte Sullivan), whom Chloe had informed about the crush that Gail's now-ex-boyfriend Nick (Peter Mooney) had on Andy.

Andy and Nick also were partners for the day, with Andy starting it by crooning along to Extreme's "More Than Words" -- the tune she
