I was somewhat pessimistic about how this movie might be, but I was pleasantly surprised. The cast had great chemistry and the overall story was really good. The director for this film also directed "Shall We Dance?" and "Waterboys". I happen to be a musician and thought that the way they produced this film was very professional and believable for the most part(sometimes the girls were actually playing, but when they aren't they do an excellent job of acting like they are). You don't have to be a musician to enjoy this film, this film had memorable characters, comedic moments, and was an overall good experience. I would say give it a try, you might be glad you did.
