It's April 1994. The Handy Kaufmans are New Jersey's foremost underachieving rock band. Kurt Cobain has just committed suicide, and this band full of slackers is about to embark on one final tour. They've been at it for four years. Either they make it big this time they grab the brass ring of a record contract or they resign themselves to a life of nine-to-five mediocrity.

My views....
11 April 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Tambay Film Festival in Tampa and I really enjoyed it. There was excellent acting and directing, and the cinematography was good for such a limited budget and resources. Chuck did a good job!
