Storyline

Losers Take All is a comedy in which we follow "The Fingers," a fictional punk-pop band stumbling and staggering their way in the opposite direction of mainstream success, circa 1986. Fingers are faced with the unlikely opportunity of committing the ultimate indie rock sin: selling out. Do they stay true to their non-commercial DIY sound and ethos? Do they get in bed with corporate rock? Or do they simply keep getting wasted and implode into oblivion? Written by Miles Monroe

Trivia

Prior to filming, only Billy Kay knew how to play the instrument his character plays. Aaron Himelstein (Dave the bass player) had only played a little guitar, Peter Brensinger (Lance the drummer) had played keyboard, and Kyle Gallner had never sung outside of karaoke. The band "John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives", a local Memphis, TN band who performed the songs on the film's soundtrack (with the exception of Kyle Gallner's singing) trained the cast for 2 weeks in instrument training. Though only Kyle Gallner's singing is on the soundtrack, all four members of the Fingers knew how to play their songs for the film's shoot. See more »

Apart of the music there's not much going on.
27 February 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Following a starting band, watching their struggle to find gigs, fans or a company that wants to produce them, it's all déjà-vu to me. I'm not saying that the acting was bad or so as it wasn't but the story just lacks some enthusiasm and originality. It's all too cliché to be special. And for a comedy it clearly lacks of humor. It's not the couple funny moments there are that will make this a comedy I will remember. If you want to watch something simular but really funny than I recommend you watch Flight Of The Conchords (2007), a serie that deserved so much more credit. The good part of Losers Take All is the music. For once the music didn't suck so that's a good point. For the rest it's really nothing special.
