1If you like cheese and cringing and have no interest in good music you might like this film
18 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Follows your standard battle of the bands plot and uses all the clichés that come with it. Which is fine because I had this expectation before watching the film. But what I was hoping for was something that would make the film stand out. Instead you get really mediocre music from the main character and so much cringe your face will hurt after watching this.

Every scene is just pure cringe and cheesy. I am talking people walking on stage one at a time to join in with his performance. The bully who has his own band throwing a fit in the crowd as his girl now flocks to the stage for the main character. Then paparazzi rush the stage to take photos of a boy doing a mediocre performance of a song consisting of about 4 chords... Roll into this some cheesy cliché songs with even cheesier music videos that the main character imagines in his head and this is everything this film has to offer.

It's pretty much the worst film I have ever seen! In fact I have never reviewed a film before but just had to after watching this I felt so strongly about how bad it was.
