They are not wild and crazy anymore, or at least they think so. Now, thanks to an offer nobody can't refuse, they will try to recapture that old rock and roll magic and give themselves a second chance.

Storyline

After 30 years, a rock band rejoins when Bono, from U2, shows interest in buying one of their songs. The gathering brings up old fights between Eddie, the lead singer, and Santos, the guitar player. Bono postpones the deal indefinitely while Eddie tries to put the band together one more time. Soon, the old folks start to play gigs again, while Lucia, the drummer's teenage daughter, renews their rocker style up... A comedy about friendship, rock and roll craziness, second chances and dreams that come true, but thirty years later! Written by Anonymous

An excellent comedy
3 November 2014 | by romeritosdavidSee all my reviews

Although is not the most original idea, this is an amusing and surprisingly emotional tale of a fictional 80s rock band which reunite 30 years after they split. It is on the money more often than not delivering plenty of humor, drama and a great ending. The comedy is obvious as we have old rockers reuniting with some suffering from middle age spread whilst others are not all with it after a chaotic lifestyle. It is entertaining if obvious as we watch this bunch of middle age men try to recapture what they once had with. But then whilst the comedy is present throughout the movie the tone shifts and evolves more into a funny dramedy about some interesting issues, most notably those between singer Eddie and guitarist Santos, played with real 'macho' charisma by Damian Alcazar and Arturo Rios.

Without a doubt, Alcazar is one of the greatest Mexican actors and his performance here is exceptional, but to be honest the collective performances of Arturo Rios, Jorge Zarate and Alvaro Guerrero are simply brilliant and they are more than convincing as old rockers reuniting after 30 years.

What this all boils down to is that 'Eddie Reynolds' is one singular rock movie, especially when it comes to comedies about fictional rock bands. It is not the greatest movie ever made, in fact there are times it seems to struggle, but more often than not it gets it right and delivers a brilliant mix of humor, drama and an unforgettable ending.
