(mx) wrote: This is a beautiful first feature for Australian director/ writer Leon Ford. Focusing on a socially awkward Griff and his relationships it is superbly shot to reflect the emotions, thoughts of Griff and the other characters and the subject matter. This film has a melancholic yet child like imaginative quality. The costume and art design is some of the best I've seen in Australian films. It is stylised in a really interesting way that focuses on Griff's world rather than placing it so obviously as Sydney, Australia. Whereas most Australian films tend to awkwardly over-emphasise location and Australian "culture". Rather this film focuses on some unique characters with their own flaws and quirks and we get to experience their emotional journey that is both sweet and heart breaking. The performances are outstanding especially for Griff played by Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) and Maeve Dermondy (Beautiful Kate) as Melody. The film also has a great supporting cast and the cinematography is a joy to watch, complimenting the tone and emotions of the characters. Overall a really strong first feature for Ford, but also a beautiful quirky drama.

(de) wrote: The first film wasn't that refined to start with, but this sequel makes it look like a masterpiece in subtlety. The same types of fat jokes are done here, but in more obvious, gross ways, and other bizarre types of humor belch their way across the screen too, such as bestiality jokes, incest jokes, and sex jokes. Plus, every joke has an off sense of timing, as if each gag were rushed and filled with actors who look and act like deer caught in the headlights. The charm of the first film is completely gone, leaving this dead, joyless affair in its wake.

It probably could've done with some political satire, which wouldn't at all have been difficult considering the films premise and characters, but it makes do just fine without them. Jack Lemmon and James Garner are the perfect on screen duo, just as they've always been and would have continued to be had they been somehow blessed with immortality. This is probably one of the duos better team ups.

(gb) wrote: Eddie Wilson (Michael Pare) was the lead singer of "Eddie & The Cruisers", an on the rise rock band in the early 1960s that played late 1970s/1980s style music. They cut one successful album, "Tender Years", which featured the hit song "On The Dark Side", and it looked as though Eddie (and his band) had overnight fame & fortune almost within his grasp, but Eddie could not see beyond his own arrogance to recognize and accept the fact that if he wanted to be in the spotlight, he would have to play by certain rules, and at times could mistreat his band mates, even lyricist/piano player Frank "Word Man" Ridgeway (Tom Berenger). Following the death of their original sax player and the rejection of their 2nd album, "A Season In Hell", rejected because the style of music was dismissed as little more than "weird noises", Eddie apparently committed suicide, driving his car off the bay docks... but since his body was never found, an urban legend formed around him. Years later, in the early 1980s, Eddie's music has experienced a resurgence in popularity & appreciation when his old record label re-releases the Tender Years album, and a debate is sparked as to what happened to the lost performance tapes and recordings of the "Season in Hell" album. Then someone starts ransacking former band members homes in a desperate search for those tapes... could it be Eddie? In the midst of this, more about the band's tragic downfall comes to light. All in all, a well made, well acted film that speaks for all those rock singers who almost had it but for whatever reason couldn't hold on. Michael Pare (in the role that should have made him a star) is well cast as Eddie Wilson, the charismatic but self-destructive rock singer, though the true star is Tom Berenger as the lyricist who must uncover the truth of it all. Excellent showcase for the music of John Cafferty (Eddie's singing voice) and the Beaver Brown Band
