Storyline

It's 1983 and Brad Roberts is the best high school quarterback in the country. He dates the sexiest girl in town and is extremely popular, but Brad is not satisfied. He wants to prove that he's more than just a hot-shot quarterback; Brad tries to turn his heavy metal band into the first ever boy band, and they reject him. So Brad, the jock, teams up with a stoner, and an ex-figure skater, and a couple of reject break-dancers from the Bronx to make their mark in this sweet film. Written by Betsy T.

Not the kind of band River City needs
25 August 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Michael Copon a former Power Ranger and Ryan Hansen formerly of Hansen are probably the only names you'll recognize from this rather dull and witless comedy about a football player who wants to start the first boy band.

That would be Copon who is the town golden boy as the quarterback of his team in the 80s, but when he confesses music and dance are his first love becomes a pariah even in his own family.

When the biggest joke in the film is a band mate doing number 2 in a strange toilet you know this film has problems.

Some of the music you might enjoy, the rest you can leave.
