Justin Collette and Danielle Leger‘s comedic musical rockumentary revels in stadium-sized 70s rawk, performed live with seemingly limitless energy.
However, the thin and predictable behind-the-music plot (band makes it big only to struggle with ego and excess) peppered with hit-and-miss tongue-in-cheek one-liners (think Spinal Tap meets Scoobie Doo), isn’t on the same level as their head-banging clutch of catchy original tunes.
That said, there are some very funny moments, like a song the band writes to intentionally synch up with Jurassic Park, and when drug-addled lead singer Carmen tries to order fast food high on acid.
