Storyline

The Dukes, a Doo Wop group, were on top of the world at 17, and struggle for survival in 2008. Their manager is desperately trying to get them work but is met with failure at every turn. Finally pushed to the extreme , they pull a heist only a fool would attempt, which leaves them even more desperate. When all seems lost, they find themselves. Underneath the laughter, the film explores the intricacies of redefining yourself; not dealing only with lost fame, but for anyone who's found themselves at the bottom of the mountain looking up to where they once were; and how, in changing times, to hold on to your true self. Written by Bob Byers

Very enjoyable!
6 February 2008 | by ronoxygenSee all my reviews

We caught this movie at the Newport film festival and loved it!

The comedy and drama was every enjoyable, especially some of the situations George (Chazz Palminteri) gets into with his over-sized girl friends! The overall story of a once popular doo-wop groups struggle to maintain normal life was very new and refreshing. The different routes the characters take to achieve success kept me entertained the whole movie through. The cast of known, and unknown actors was a great combination. Melora Hardin from The Office, which was fun to see her in another roll. Robert Davi, one of my childhood favorites, did a great job as the main character, and even sang beautifully.

Thumbs up!
