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.

My 381st Review: Nice small comedy with some good touches
7 March 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Tiny in scope but big in heart this wasn't half bad. A film about a washed up Vegas act, Satin, who though way too young wants to be Joey Bishop and Dean Martin all rolled up in one - but has forgotten what is means to love the music and not just the money.

When he rolls up in a small desert town on the run from knee cappers in Vegas he encounters a motley mob who remind him what it means to love music.

I actually kind of liked this - it's funny, it's got heart, it has a little indie feeling to it, it's well made, well lit, and the cast work well together.

Kind of silly. kind of fun, it's a good pizza movie when you want something a little kookie and it all just kind of works....
