‘Lips’ Kudlow and his best friend Robb Reiner were almost metal rock stars in 1984. Here Gervasi, a roadie back then, follows the band as they mount another determined but maybe doomed effort at fame and fortune although now in their 50’s, with families to (be) support(ed by).
What makes it all work is the director's genuine affection for his subjects, so that the film's inherent humour never quite lapses into ridicule.
