Storyline

A 1980s one-hit wonder band named "The Suburbans" reform for a special performance at one of the ex-member's wedding. At the wedding, a young record company talent scout happens to be in the audience and decides to give the now forty-ish performers a comeback push. The film attempts to take a satirical look at the music business of the 1990s, and compare it to the simpler 1980s scene. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

And the Beat Goes on, Even When It Shouldn't
21 September 2019 | by ierenzSee all my reviews

It's cute and jokey and has no particular edge. Rock-and-roll and relationships are his concerns, as was the case with the recent "Sugar Town" by Allison Anders and Kurt Voss, a better and more ambitious recent movie that wasn't lucky enough to find an audience.Even at their best, cheap movies have a way to get lost in the shuffle without a sting.
