Star quality, Aunt Pearl, that's what she's got. Star quality.
Star quality, eh? And what might that be?
It's that LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA!

One of the best original rock musicals! I have just seen the DVD release, having not seen the movie in about 20 years and it holds up very well. It is not at all dated. All of the songs, except for the one which is intentionally bad, are great memorable songs...apparently thanks to Phil Judd of The Swingers. Casting really makes the film. Great chemistry between the two cousins Jackie (Joe Kennedy) and Angus (Ross O Donovan).
Although the plot is somewhat thin, as is typical for this type of movie, it moves along quite nicely and has good light-hearted humor.
See the movie, you will not be disappointed.
