Movie Info

Recently dumped by his girlfriend, underachiever Alex (O'Nan) embarks on an impromptu road trip with his new bandmate, the eccentric Jim (Michael Weston). By channeling their inner children and giving a new meaning to the term "lo-fi," Alex and Jim find their unique style by bringing the sound of children's instruments to their unsuspecting fans. Playing a series of bizarre shows and experiencing multiple near-disasters, Alex and Jim's persistence takes them on a true coming-of-age journey - one that may be their last shot at achieving their childhood dreams. -- (C) Oscilloscope

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (14)

  • While the movie itself is an uneven, sometimes preachy affair, it's alive with possibilities whenever [Weston's] on screen.

    September 27, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Initially, this low-budget film writes a lot of checks on the First National Bank of Whimsy, but I was astonished when none of them bounced.

    September 21, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A likably goofy, lo-fi indie propelled by the syncopations of a cheesy keyboard - and the cheesy dreams of its hapless heroes.

    September 20, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Inner child? Open road? No, this film is actually about Mr. O'Nan and his wan, scruffy innocence.

    September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • An indie about-tell me if this sounds familiar-a brokenhearted sad sack who travels cross-country with a weirdo and a too-hot-for-these-dorks woman on a road trip of healing and self-actualization.

    September 18, 2012
  • Offering little more than flat karaoke versions of Sundance-style hits, this is strictly an amateur-hour affair.
