Fond childhood memory
26 July 2001 | by 8350407See all my reviews

I first saw this film when I was 12 years old. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon and my younger sister and I were told to go down to the video store to pick a video to watch with mum. I can't remember what I chose, but my sister chose "Buddy's song". I thought it was the most non-tolerable movie ever.

However, 11 years later, I find it to be another rainy Sunday afternoon. My flatmate sent me down to the video shop to get some videos. I find myself browsing through the comedy section and low and behold, what catches my eye? "Buddy's song". I was feeling a little nostalgic so I gave it a go again and boy, I'm glad I did!

Now that I have more appreciation for music, I was able to judge the music properly and in a more professional manner. The storyline was easier for me to understand due to my more detailed understanding of social behaviour.

Watching it again, I thought it was a reasonable film, with a few good points. I think that Roger Daltrey particulary makes the film, but is definately not his best acting role.

If you ever find yourself on a rainy afternoon with nothing to do, I thoroughly recommend you sit down and watch it.
