Movie Info

In the glamorous world where the ability to get past the velvet rope separates the losers from the winners, one newly single guy is about to get a shot at becoming the latest inductee into the coolest club around. Barry Shlotzak is a nice guy with a psychotic girlfriend. After emancipating himself from the relationship in order to get a fresh new start in life, Barry is convinced by his best friend, Douglas, to enter into a contest designed to select an intern for the local club crew known as the "Bar Starz" -- a trendsetting group that personifies cool, and whose members can effortlessly gain access to any nightclub at any time. Now, in order to prove that they have what it takes to become an official member of the Bar Starz crew, Barry and the other aspiring Bar Starz will endure a rigorous series of tests designed specifically by lead star Donnie Pintron to assess their nightclub aptitude. Of course, you have to dress like a superstar to be a part of this crew, but that's only the beginning. A true member of the Bar Starz can stroll effortlessly past the ropes of even the most exclusive nightclub, and pick up even the hottest of babes with the least amount of effort. Does Barry have what it takes to become the toast of the town, or was he simply better off being a plain old nice guy? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

San Ber-NA-dee-O's in the house! Ok, this was a lame parody but it had its moments. The stereotypes abound in this spoof on the "club scene" in downtown 'Bernadino. Definitely geared towards young adults, yet older teens and more mature adults will find parts of it funny. I question whether this one should have made it to the big screen or went straight to dvd. I found it hard to believe that the lead was underage and went through so much to get a fake ID-he looked like he was 35! I think, with a more powerful lead, this may have ended up a more effective comedy. Another example of where bad casting ruins a film (and this one didn't have much to spare!). The stereotypes are funny, with a "Spicoli" surfer character who was a dead ringer for young Sean Penn in looks but updated with a lame club theme and bad acting, and a young "Ludacris" look-a-like who lacked any rhythm whatsoever. It doesn't really stand out from the string of lame comedies other than some really outrageous stereotypes that are a bit novel and the only reason I gave it the rating I did. I admit I did laugh a few times, especially at the pushy side-kick who is always getting his friend in trouble. Even if you are not a club frequenter, you will relate to the obnoxious caricatures in the film-we all know these people and hope you aren't one of them!

You will be really pissed off if you pay full price for this one. If you like this type of film, or are in your late teens, go to the matinee. The rest of you may want to catch it on dvd, it's not that memorable.
