Very entertaining
3 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film hits me on all levels. I really enjoy films with good music and this certainly has that element. The acapella songs makes it unique. Acting was good and the casting was very good. I was in a multi-generational audience and everyone was having a good time. And finally, there are a few twists that keep things interesting. I think everyone who sees this will come away with someone in the film they identify with and someone they would like to be. I liked it better than many of the latest Hollywood releases that follow a very predictable script. Fresh faces! Better than "Sideways" in many respects. I could see my buddies in several of the characters.
