I can't speak for the average viewer, but if you were ever part of a neighborhood rock band that fantisized greatness while playing on drum sets obtained with S&H green stamps and guitars from the local Sears & Roebuck, then this film will reconnect you with your youth. From band managers, to battles of the bands, to playing your own original songs, to the love story we all imagined, to the popularity we all dreamed of, it's all there. The tunes are simple but catchy, and the ending is what fun movies are made of. If you never played in a neighborhood rock band, you may not relate. :+)
