A real slice of Americana
23 September 2000 | by Tim-121See all my reviews

This movie was very enjoyable even if the acting and plot were subpar. The plot is only a vehicle for the music scenes with Louis Prima and Sam Butera who can really light up a room. I also loved the way Prima and Butera conversed with each other in their hip cat talk. June Wilkinson is very attractive as Prima's love interest. I checked her IMDB biography and she's a former Playboy playmate who's nickname is "The Body". I assure you she's much better looking than Jesse Ventura.
