Written and directed by actress Polly Draper (thirtysomething), the film portrays her real life singer-songwriting/musician sons Nat and Alex Wolff and the real life band they established in preschool. Their father and Draper's husband jazz pianist Michael Wolff (The Arsenio Hall Show) portrays their inept according-playing dad and produced and arranged the film's music. Draper and Wolff's friends made cameo appearances, including Ann Curry, Ricki Lake, Tony Shalhoub, Cyndi Lauper, Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Arsenio Hall, and the entire cast of TV's thirtysomething (including Draper herself).

While it is true that parts of this movie and television series are childish it is not as bad as some other users may say. The kids quite funny...even my cousins (who are all quite young) found that many of the jokes about "babes" and "rock" were very satirical. Coming from generations of rock loving family I know that this show can't be taken at face value. But rather much of it should be recognized as a jab at the side of "big business music" and the image it portrays.
For all of those people saying "it's disgusting and should never be witnessed" why not try getting a giggle out of it's intended satire instead of just bashing at the film....not to mention the young actors.
