Musical madness!
21 June 2003 | by badmelodySee all my reviews

Julie And The Cadillacs is a less than average musical with a tortured plot and some cringeworthy acting. The fact that Toyah Willcox is in it gives some idea of the film's quality for it is the same Toyah Willcox who can't sing, act or even speak properly; and wasn't she in that awful Quadrophenia? Anyway, despite the many negatives of the film, Julie And The Cadillacs has a certain sardonic something which will keep the viewer's eyes on the screen. Spotted by a slimey PR man in a Liverpool club, Julie Carr (the blond and almost beautiful Tina Russell) and her backing band The Cadillacs travel down to London to cut a record. They meet various characters during their big-time adventure, all of whom burst into song at some point, usually when least expected. And most of those songs seem to have been written in under ten minutes by a five year old. The exception is a number called Saw A Boy which is unnervingly quite decent and this is just as well because the song is performed three times during the film. The trials and tribulations of the band's attempt to grab stardom is really quite boring and the story twists and turns like a perfectly straight line. Julie And The Cadillacs is a film that you really must see but one that you really must never see more than once.
