Fighting to keep her dreams alive and save her brother from a life of addiction on Los Angeles' Skid Row, an overlooked singing prodigy embarks on an unlikely journey with the son of a famed music manager.
The calendar on Eddie's refrigerator is for August 2014. Assuming that's the month the story begins, his desire to take his wife to a Bruno Mars concert at Madison Square Garden on their anniversary is off by a month. Bruno Mars played MSG in mid-July 2014 and was in Canada and the far-west USA in August. See more »
Of course you can't expect t it to be on the same level as a blockbuster comedy film but it's something different and it has Luis Guzman, He's a fun guy all around. There were parts that could have been funnier, and it looks like they were trying to be funny but perhaps the script didn't work out that way. Really glad to see a guilty pleasure film made.
The beginning of the film starts out appealing, it looks like it's going to be outrageous but doesn't quite get there. It had some moments that made you smile and even laugh. Can't say it quite made you laugh until you cried but enough to keep you engaged. not too familiar with the director Ian. The production looks like it had good quality video editing. It had some good name actors: Rosie Perez, Rosario Dawson, and Luis Guzman. I definitely would like to see more guilty pleasure movies like these.
