Joyous '90s musical-drama has lots of profanity.

Memorable, lingering in one's mind after it has ended. Perhaps, in the end, it's a tad wiser than it initially lets on.

It's a relaxed, colorful creation, remaining true to rascally human behaviors while respecting the unifying power of music. Downright irresistible.

High-energy fun
