When Fresno and his band are rehearsing, we hear a vibraphone in the background. Assuming the keyboard player is using a synthesizer, playing that sound (which is unlikely since the keyboard looks more like a Fender Rhodes electric piano, which produces quite a different sound), his hand and finger movements don't match the vibraphone notes that we hear.

I just watched this for the first time on my cable companies free On-Demand. I would say, interesting...complicated...disjointed...but demanding a 2nd view. Jennifer Jason Leigh is somewhat under-stated in this, and the boy is believable at times, totally not at other times. Questions come up at the end of almost every scene, so that's why I probably will view this again. But, can't help feeling I'm watching a "E-True Hollywood Story" about "Family Ties" or "Growing Pains" (what with Alan Thicke in this) at times it feels like an entertainment documentary, with some added drama that I won't "spoil". The fact that this was filmed in Canada is kind of parody of itself in that they make fun of that fact, but yet are also filming in Canada. Ironic.
