A Swinging Good Time
27 May 2000 | by (Belleville, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Alley Cats Strike, a film that mixes hip swing music with bowling, concerns the athletic rivalry between two highschools and a group of retro outcasts who love to bowl.

East and West Appleton have an intense sports rivalry. They've gone head to head against each other in just about every sport imaginable until East Appleton proposes bowling. Of course, none of the jocks can bowl. "Only losers bowl," claims the West Appleton mayor.

The West Appleton athletic council confronts the outcasts about bowling for the school. The kids don't really care about the school or winning but since no one else can bowl as good as them they do step up to the plate. As they film winds down, the group who were once the brunt of jokes, gain the respect of the school and the "real" jocks.

The film, although simple and predictable, is very good. The young cast including Schmid, Ri'chard and Cuoco, are excellent. The director, Rod Daniel's seems to have been influenced by Scorsese. At times throughout the film, the action pauses while the narrator(Schmid) explains to the audience what is really happening. I loved that!

I didn't expect much from the film going in but I was surprised. Check it out!
