Movie Info

"Falling Star" is a romantic comedy that fuses music and pop culture with a satirical and gentle look into Orthodox Judaism and Kabbalah. Ex-boyband pop star, Bobby Starr is booked to headline the grand opening of the first Kosher Casino in the Catskills. The reason Bobby gets this unlikely booking is that the daughter of the hotel owner, Rebekkah has a secret crush on him. Hiring him to perform live at the hotel is her last act of rebellion before committing to her arranged marriage. Through his music, they will both be saved from their own bleak destinies and discover brighter futures.

Audience Reviews for Falling Star

There are things about this movie that are absolutely hilarious. Unfortunately, there's a lot in between that drags and brings the good stuff down. Overall, though, this was enjoyable. The acting is cheesy and it's obviously low-budget, but since it's satire, that adds to its appeal. If you've ever been a fan of boybands and can appreciate some good-natured humor, you'll probably like this.

Ridiculousness piled ridicuously high on more ridiculous ridiculousness. This film has nothing going for it, aside from it's former name -- "Goyband".
