for some reason the whole review that u posted 2 years ago is gone now.i wanted to read it cuz in my opinion you've got it wrong.i mean chuckles?? this is not totally a comedy. it has a bit of drama and strugglefor the band to get better.and if u feel bored with the camera work and the even-keel pacing is because they grab the attention of everyone on the school at the end. everybody was there, nobody was in class
