Critic Reviews for Bandwagon

The band's perfectly mediocre pop (written and laid down by real musicians) accompanies a story that's both dramatic and hilarious.

Audience Reviews for Bandwagon


"It Couldn't Be Ann" is one of the most underrated songs of the 90's. From the lead singer who always performs with his back to audience, to the manager who reads 90% of the film dispensing helpful kernals of wisdom when in need, to the bus breakdown...(read more) s and band relationship break-ups, theres everything you would imagine in a "band movie", and it's good. It's funny, and light, and the musics good, the band won't make it, probably wont ever tour again, and that's what makes it special.
