Quotes

Kirby Laybourne: I'm so excited. I am going to be in a boy band. That's never happened to me before, unless you count Sunshine Generation, but that's a bigger group of kids; it wasn't just like three kids... like we're not really kids. We're men. Um... which is kind of funny. Why is it a boy band? We should be a man band. I'll bring that up with them later.

Definitely a Riot!
9 September 2004 | by (Orem, UT) – See all my reviews

Sons of Provo is hilarious. It reminded me a lot of Spinal Tap--maybe the SOP guys can do just as good a commentary when their DVD comes out! The movie follows a boy band based in Provo, UT as they rise, albeit slightly, to some level of stardom (I'm guessing the stardom level should be considered in Utah artist terms). For a movie that was shot on such a small budget, it's interesting to see the amount of cast they are able to bring in for some of the concert scenes.

The characters are enjoyable--especially Kirby Laybourne and Grayson. The movie's not perfect...but the soundtrack (which I hear is all original) really drives the movie and pushes it along. If you get a chance to see it...this one is worth the time.
