a great reminder of the good old days.
14 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I was a young boy when this film came out, but the famous theme song always stuck with me. considering all the rubbish coming out on the teen music and film market, this film was a delightful surprise.

The simple story of success in the music industry for five young boys is nicely written intertwining with the martial problems of Hawkes parents played by Daltry and Duce.

And the songs are great, obviously Daltry had some hand in the writing of them, listening to them reminded me of Led Zepplen.

Some surprises though, if my memory is correct this film was a PG when it came out, interesting it was then when I was treated to the sight of a lovely girl revealing her bare chest to the audience.

The classic Grange hill style friendship between the band members is shown as pure and trusting. it reminded me of the crap channel 4 series Boyz Unlimited. I don't understand how Hawkes didn't do more songs.

The acting from Daltry is good and the chemistry between him and Hawkes is heartwarming. Plus the final twist in the ending was both perfect and beliveable.

This film should be released on dvd, or at the least would be a great study guide for film and music students.
