Forever Plaid (2008)
Very evocative of the era, with heart and respect.
Being of an age to remember the white "4 guys" singing groups of the 50's/early sixties (4 Aces; 4 Lads; 4 Coins; 4 Preps etc) I was looking forward to seeing the DVD film made of this long running musical playing in local theater stages/clubs the last 20 years. I was not disappointed. The singing was flawless in the typical "pop" sound of the groups innocent era.The guys played some of the stage mannerisms of the groups for laughs, but with respect. Seeing the montage of the typical "Ed Sullivan Show" of the era was worth the price alone.
The story line of the deceased "Four Plaids" seeking to finally play the show they were destined for (though the fame itself they would never get in the changing musical era) was bittersweet and you just can't help loving their naiveté and great voices. Very evocative of the era and I recommend it highly. This is fluff, but marvelous fluff.
