Storyline

A comedic tale which charts the fast rise and fall of an all-girl, four-piece Portland rock band, The Paper Dolls. Working day jobs while dreaming of success, aspiring young rockers Kali, Lavender and Reggie get the jump start they need when local legend Fauna, singer for the obscure band The Snogs, joins them as lead singer. But Fauna, street-wise and opportunistic, just wants to use them on her way to stardom. The commercial direction in which Fauna is leading the band begins chipping away at their friendship. All comes to a head during a two-day party at the Doll House--a house into which they all have recently moved. The next morning, a body is found, someone is dead, and the Dolls' world changes forever. Written by Sujit R. Varma

This is NOT the Portland Rock Scene
26 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Director of Down and out with the Dolls was obviously trying to capture the rock scene in Portland Maine not Portland Oregon. Being from the area I can attest to the fact that this film is nothing more than a cartoon like interpretation of the actual Portland rock scene. It was also painfully obvious that there were few if any experienced actors on this film. The dialogue throughout this film sounded like the actors were reading off of mispelled que cards. The writing was as bad as the acting....which again was really bad. I've seen better acting in porno movies. Editing wise this piece was a mess. There were at lease a dozen scenes that had no place in the film other than filler. From top to bottom this project was a dud in my opinion.
