Storyline

A 1980s one-hit wonder band named "The Suburbans" reform for a special performance at one of the ex-member's wedding. At the wedding, a young record company talent scout happens to be in the audience and decides to give the now forty-ish performers a comeback push. The film attempts to take a satirical look at the music business of the 1990s, and compare it to the simpler 1980s scene. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Good idea...bad movie
12 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

The Suburbans has a good idea, but it doesn't lead to nowhere. Idea could have worked, but somehow the film is boring and unfunny. The script is lame, too bad, because it could have been funny... Acting is ok, but he roles are so badly written, that the actors have almost nothing to work with. This one of those movies that watch only once and after that you forget it.
