If you are a person that actually can go to a movie and simply enjoy it for the fun and a new experience, then you will love Drumline. It's a great movie that will enlighten many Americans as to the type of "marching bands" that have been the highlight of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) football games for decades. Do not go to this movie and expect to see the standard kind of band that graces the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade every year. Be prepared to see and understand the concept of band according to America's HBCU's- I guarantee, if you haven't seen it before, it will blow your mind.
