A recording contract: It's the brass ring for every rock band. And now Beyond Gravity, a group fronted by charismatic singer-songwriter-guitarist Lance and his hard-living younger brother Mike, and managed by their boyhood pal Ben, have finally grabbed theirs. It promises to be everything the three guys have worked for since high school, and when they leave their hometown of Austin, Texas to record for Los Angeles indie label Rage Records, Lance vows to his wife--Beyond Gravity's beautiful bass player Chelsea--to stay focused on the things that really matter: "It's all about the music. We're not gonna let anything screw it up." After almost a year of rehearsing and recording, however, there's still no release, no tour, no video. Part of the delay is due to Mike's growing substance addictions and subsequent stretches in rehab. Rage Records president Jerry Tollman tells Ben he's reluctant to spend more money on the band when it can all go south in a flash. When Mike is busted for heroin... Written by LJC

Like a 90 minute long Aerosmith video.....
8 January 2005 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

This film wasn't one of the greatest I've seen recently. It played like a very long Aerosmith video. I had to fast forward through the numerous musical parts as I began to get bored of the mediocre music (really not my cup of tea). Those problems aside it really wasn't all that bad with some pretty good acting (or brilliant in Glenn Quinn's case) and a small whiff of a plot here and there. I'll admit I only bought this because Mr Quinn was in it, he was excellent as the evil manager. In fact, I found myself shouting; "Ooh! you BASTARD!" at the television several times during the film.

I'd give it 6 out of 10 but only because of Quinn's great portrayal of a big bastard.
