Storyline

Bruno wakes up in bed next to Caroline, his long time crush. But tomorrow she's off for school in France, and maybe she only granted this miracle as a parting gift for her long time friend. So tonight is Bruno's last chance. And tonight, as it happens, Broken Social Scene, her favourite band, is throwing a big outdoor bash. Maybe if Bruno, with the help of his best pal Blake, can score tickets and give Caroline a night to remember, he can keep this miracle alive. Written by Anonymous

MTV has 5 minute music clips with more storyline.
22 March 2011 | by (Au) – See all my reviews

This Movie Is Broken is either a blatant self promotional film for the band Broken Social Scene or the writers truly lack any talent and had to compensate for their lack of skill and/or writers block by putting a live concert in to fluff out and fill 90% of their script.

To even suggest that this is a movie is misleading. It's an hour and a half music clip showing a live band (Broken Social Scene) intermingled with perhaps a total of 10 minutes of actual dialogue and 'storyline' about the characters.

I can't even imagine how anyone can even call this a movie other than the fact that it's comprised of a series of still images strung together.

Unless you want to sit and watch Broken Social Scene play live for almost an hour and a half, avoid this film.

I have seen music clips tell a better tale in less than 5 minutes.

The movie summary for this film has almost the whole story in it.
