I can't imagine that many people will revisit this film unless they saw it when it came out on the back of Hawkes' short lived pop career. I only watched it on TV the other night out of interest as I had never seen it. As the film went on I started to wonder what had happened to the plot there was some stuff about Terry being a criminal but this is dropped in favour of touring and recording. While this could be a musical drama, it isn't as nothing of any real consequence comes about. The film goes just where you expect it to in terms of ending, but does so without really doing much.
I know that it is meant to be some sort of kitchen sink, rags to riches drama but it doesn't work at all. In place of drama there is mind numbing monotony as minor arguments occur between the various characters and are then resolved. It is difficult to see characters in the film and thus hard to be involved in any drama in their lives. The music is OK if you like soft, 1990's pop-rock stuff. There is no song in the main film that is as catchy as Hawkes debut hit, but even that is showing it's age now.
Terry is the only watchable character and that is also due in a big way to Daltrey. He is the centre of the film and he manages to give a good performance despite never really having anything but dialogue that had been rejected from Minder episodes. The weak spot (and it's a big weak spot) is Hawkes. He, and most of the young cast, cannot act at this stage in their careers. Hawkes stands out as the worst, he has the same look on his face for the majority of the film and uses the same snotty tone of voice he makes Steven Segal look like he's in touch with his inner self! Even when confronted with a pair of breasts, Buddy stares as if he's watching a boring TV show. I'm not sure if it's his performance or bad ADR, but the dialogue sounds fake for the most part, like it has no connection to the actors on screen (hence the thought that it might be bad dubbing), but sound or not he is simply a really poor actor and it is impossible to care about him or his story. Duce is good and Elphick has a brief role.
Overall this film is pointless and very dull. The acting and production values gives it a feel of an episode of Grange Hill. Daltrey (as others have said) is quite good and tries hard but his natural performance only serves to make Hawkes look even more wooden and forced. I watched this film out of curiosity as I was a teenager when Hawkes hit big with his single after a pretty dull 105 minutes I wished I hadn't bothered. It's not a totally bad film it is just inconsequential and littered with flaws and bad points.
