Storyline

A washed up Vegas lounge singer, Jack Satin (Hamilton von Watts), has no money, no job, and delusional aspirations of fame. When Jack is forced to leave Vegas, he packs up his old Cadillac and hits the road for Atlantic City. But his car dies in the desert and Jack is left stranded in the small town of Lost Springs. There, Jack meets jazz legend turned mechanic, Doc Bishop (Robert Guillaume), who helps him with his car trouble. Although Jack is far from the stage, he begins to find himself feeling at home in the small town. When he meets dreamy eyed bartender, Lauren Wells (Melissa Joan Hart), Jack starts to see there is more to life than chasing fame and fortune. Doc encourages Jack to explore his true love of music, while Lauren provides the audience he has always wanted. But as Jack realizes this town has more to offer him than the bright lights of the big city, his Vegas past catches up with him -- what unfolds is comedy at the crossroads of life.

Jack Satin: The journey of a washed up Vegas lounge singer.
23 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack Satin is down on his luck, not that he's ever had any luck to begin with. Satin takes us on a wild goose chase in search of a career that never was. Jack Satins struggles are no different than any other aspiring performers. Even though Jack Satin claims to have had a booming career and a massive following in Vegas he finds himself running from the little he had in search of starting over in Atlantic City. When his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere he is forced to take a look at his life. With the help of his new friends he reignites his passion for music and performing. Hamilton von Watts does a great job portraying this cocky/ overly confident Vegas lounge singer. Melissa Joan Hart and Robert Guillaume's characters help to bring out the true entertainer in Jack. Michael Cudlitz's character brings an additional element of humor. While the movie has many laughable moments I still found myself holding back tears at times. Overall, I thought it was a great film. The story is believable and engaging.
