Storyline

G.J. Echternkamp tells the story of his relationship with his parents, his mother Cindy (Russo) and his step-father, Frank (Platt). Frank used to be a member of OXO, a band from the '80s whose one hit wonder scored with the song "Whirly Girl". Cindy was the ultimate groupie who married Frank and thought life would be glamorous and award shows, but that is not how it turned out. Written by richardclark78

Definitely worth's mire than 6

I was very surprised when I saw that so few people have actually given this movie a rate! It has comedic moments and some laughs but also sweet moments. Overall, I had a great time watching this movie and I loved that it was based on a true story & documentary which I am going to check as well.
