Storyline

It's April 1994. The Handy Kaufmans are New Jersey's foremost underachieving rock band. Kurt Cobain has just committed suicide, and this band full of slackers is about to embark on one final tour. They've been at it for four years. Either they make it big this time they grab the brass ring of a record contract or they resign themselves to a life of nine-to-five mediocrity. Lee, the band leader and drummer, is a control freak who also never finishes what he starts. Mike, the chief songwriter, tries to emulate the tortured-artist lifestyle of the rock-and-roll icons he idolizes, like Cobain. Donnie, lead singer and compulsive womanizer, and Big Frank, the incompetent but golden-hearted manager, round out the band personnel. (Their bassist, Jim, electrocutes himself in a drunken pissing contest.) The Kaufmans are joined by last-minute replacement Trixie, a wild rock-and-roll beauty and bassist who sparks up Lee's dormant romantic instincts. What will this tour across the Midwest and New ...

A great film
27 November 2002 | by notintroubleSee all my reviews

Granted, it shows that there wasn't a lot of money to make this movie, but Mark Hamill is great as the father in this movie taking on the rock band genre. The director shows some good potential, but we'll have to wait and see when his next movie comes out. The cast is solid with their performances and the camera moves pretty much with ease. It's not the typical indie film, but for that I applaud it.
