Storyline

Cole is an aspiring DJ who spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James, who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James' much younger girlfriend, Sophie. With Cole's forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he is destined for. Written by Warner Bros.

Skip a beat
31 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

For some this might not miss or skip a beat, others might not see this beating at all. And there will be a few who are totally in sync with the beat (down with it so to speak). But the DJ and his friends who all are living their dream (or are they?), have to go on a journey ... out of their comfort zone.

Growing up or evolving and following what your destiny may hold for you, may not be a subject matter that attracts a lot of attention, but it does attract at least those who are fans of Mr. Efron. And while this isn't his strongest performance yet, that will not affect his fans. I was (pleasantly) surprised seeing Emily R. in this one. The movie itself does not hold many surprises though ...
