A "Night" to remember....
9 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Though you may not be familiar with it, "Blame It on the Night" is a fairly well-told story about a rock star (Mancuso) who finds out he has an illegitimate son (Thames), a military school cadet, and how he tries every trick in the book to buy his love.

There are familiar elements in this movie: father and son trying to get to understand each other, father is obsessed with his work, son is distant at first, etc. But there is also an authentic air of a rock star being out on the road and what a nomadic life they lead and how the only true family they know is the band members the roadies and such.

Good music by Neeley, best remembered as Jesus in the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar". In fact, the whole cast does well and by the end, you appreciate they went to all the trouble.

No "Blame" here: "Blame It on the Night" is great.

Eight stars. Family values rock!
