Storyline

Nineteen year old Orla from Country Antrim wins 'Follow a Star' on the Irish national TV station. Her prize is a quest - to find C&W star Jed Wood, give him a kiss, and report on her adventure on the following week's show. Ray Timmons, a middle aged documentary cameraman, is the only person available to document her on her quest. Together they travel to New York, meet up with a jaded sound recordist, Mike, and set about chasing down Jed - arriving at film sets, recording studios, everywhere Jed is due to be. Their progress is followed by a couple of DJs on a local radio station. During the week the chase continues, their relationship changes, and they learn a lot about each other and bout pursuing their own dreams, before they return to face the music back home.

Boring
16 May 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Starts off bad, ends worse. Best thing about this film was the ending. A dull story. I think it was supposed to be a comedy but there was no evidence of this. The characters were completely underdeveloped and they were also incredibly annoying. every single opportunity to have some sort of decent storyline was passed up. the writers were obviously very lazy. Completely pointless, the only one relief was that the tickets were free, but where do I go to get paid for my time wasted. No words can explain how bad the film was so please go see it and give your own review. Its not a 7.5, I just wish zero was an option. I hope anyone who worked on this film never works again.
