Storyline

Tony gets fired from his job. He's not really sad about this because he prefers writing songs and playing the guitar. He meets the drummer Charlie and they decide to start a band, although Tony is afraid of playing in front of other people. He can't even play in front of Charlie. They find another guitarist, Wynn, who enjoys fishing if he's not playing the guitar. The final member of the band is Eric, the bass-player who is often unpredictable in his actions. They name the band Circus Monkey and want to get famous and rich. However, after some successful gigs, they begin to realize what all the big music and show business is about. Written by Gerhard Windecker <g.wind@mbox300.swipnet.se>

A movie about a fictional band with excellent fictional music ? :)
21 January 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When a bunch of guys hit the skids they decide to form a band. Led by Tony Ridge the neurotic song writer who can't handle playing infront of people they face an uphill battle. Starring a bunch of basically unheard of actors (with the possible exception of Kevin Corrigan) they deliver what arthouse and independant films are all about. But ultimately as the film says "It's all about the music" with an absolute killer soundtrack and great laughs all the way through this movie has got to be one of the best movies ever made in my opinion. If you love this movie but cannot find the soundtrack please email me and I'll try to help you out :)
