If you like oldies R&R music, you'll like it
3 August 2004 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the movie because I love oldies. There's even a couples singers that never made it big that had some great songs. The movie itself is just average - kinda harmless amusing story. But I really enjoyed hearing all those old songs. Who knew Jimmy Olsen of Superman fame (Jack Larsen) had such a great voice? There's a gal named Vickie Spencer who sings two songs beautifully, why was she never a star? Marv Johnson, co-creator of the Motown sound with Berry Gordy Jr., has a wonderful voice - makes you wonder why he didn't have more hits. You get to hear songs from Jackie Wilson, Dion and Chubby Checker that never made the charts but were really good songs anyway. And Checker does his famous Twist song. And you don't get to just hear these songs, you get to watch the singers perform them. It was great seeing the famous Zasu Pitts, I heard so much about her. It's too bad the movie wasn't made about a year later and Clanton's "Venus in Blue Jeans" could have been the featured song in the movie. One ironic thing, the featured song in the movie "Green Light" by Clanton isn't very good. But overall, if you love oldies music, you'll like this movie.
