Great Flick!
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a film festival the other day, it was so good i tore up my ticket to the next movie and went home! This movie is so funny! It is a low budget movie, but it doesn't show. Johnny Slade is a decent lounge singer who gets hired to sing at a mob bosses new club, without giving too much away, Johnny gets mixed up in it all, hilarity ensues. I enjoyed seeing how Slade acts like pre-Madonna, even though he's probably less popular than a local news anchor. If you're into Sopranos it has a bunch of the characters in it. If your not it doesn't matter, it's still a movie that's laugh out loud the whole way through! I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good laugh and doesn't mind seein' someone get whacked in a kind of silly way.
