A good drama
27 December 2004 | by (Naperville IL) – See all my reviews

I like this movie quite a bit. It features Kenny Rogers when he was a youngish dark haired hippie. He and his terrific group The First Edition (Mickey Jones, Mary Arnold, Jimmy Hasell, Terry Williams, and Gene Lorenzo) give this flick a superb soundtrack and though they are the only real reasons I watched this, the movie was not bad itself. I like the downbeat ending because it was realistic and no heroics were involved. It is pretty realistic as far as showing the music industries corruption. Some of the acting is hammy but of real interest to First Edition fans or people who enjoy 70s era drama. The plot outline on here is wrong. The professor becomes Vice President of a record company, which is soon shut down for giving drugs instead of money to the performers. Sammy (the main Character) does not know this, but when the company folds, he is too vain to go back to his old job or work his way back to the top. (SPOILER) Ending up a cab driver he meets his death at the hands of a mugger.
