Storyline

When Cindy married a rock star, Frank, in 1983 she imagined a life of glamour and GRAMMYS. But the song that propelled Frank to fame, Whirly Girl, would be the only chart-topper from his group, OXO. Years later, out of shape and nearly bankrupt after spending all his money on "gas, food, dry cleaning... and drugs", Frank is not the vision Cindy married. Desperate to resuscitate her dream, Cindy furnishes a new studio for Frank in hopes he'll record another hit. Instead, he'd rather drink. And now, twenty-three years after appearing on American Bandstand, Frank lives sequestered to the basement where he uses coffee cans for a toilet. In 2005, Cindy's filmmaker son G.J. begins documenting the situation. After a year of filming, what began as an attempt to mock his stepfather instead becomes a candid portrait on the pursuit of happiness. Written by Anonymous

The Crazy Parents Are Everywhere....I'm Not Alone
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was a great documentary piece. The filming was great, well thought out perspectives. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes documentaries and has a great appreciation for films. I watch one documentary every week, this was up there in the entertaining/"I will watch this again" category. I can relate a lot to this movie, and I see a lot of characteristics of my parents that I recognize in Frank & Cindy.

For people who have little patience, this movie is not for them. My sister tried to watch it and it didn't keep her attention long. But then again, my sister doesn't really appreciate artistic things in general. So don't let boring/unoriginal people watch this film.
