Mildly entertaining relic . . .
5 May 1999 | by (northen N. J.) – See all my reviews

This contrived, let's-showcase-rock 'n' roll-stars film is only worth seeing for rare performances of LaVerne Baker, Clyde McPhatter, Little Richard, Frankie Lymon, and others.

However it is certainly NOT worth seeing for the appallingly wooden acting - but then what do you expect with a movie starring Rocky Graziano!?!
