Audience Reviews for Wild Guitar


Wild Guitar is super cheesy and features acting that truly makes you wonder how these people got to be on the silver screen while so many talented thespians remain obscure. Arch Hall Jr. has a charisma that keeps me entertained yet smirking at the ludicrous delivery. I do enjoy the music in here. "Valerie" was such a jam that it was also in Eegah.
