Nick Offerman is totally charming in this delightful little Indie film with some good music.

Despite the film falling flat overall, the needy and doting dad character is charming. Solid good vibes cast by the way. While not my type of music, I give the musical act credit for stirring emotions that relate to the plot and helps them to resolve their issues. The musical fun they displayed seemed genuine. Despite it's pluses, the film just didn't seem to come completely together. The characters' concerns are legitimate, but too overinflated and self indulgent to be taken as seriously as the characters do themselves resulting in a sense of falsehood that lacked gravitas. Meanwhile the grandmother's petty crimes that could eventually send her to prison are overlooked and played off as almost cute, because increasing immaturity with age runs in the family. Music helps the father and daughter to workout their issues and finally come to terms with pursuing a lives that suit their respective interests without impinging too much on one another. Could be a fun and relatable film for parents and children that are facing an impending empty nest to watch together. Even more so if one of the parents is deceased.

I love when a band they made up for a movie really slaps. We Are Not A Band does just that. This is a sweet, slow film with a great father-daughter relationship. Watch the movie, then pick up the soundtrack.

2* Slow moving movie. Found myself fastforwarding the movie. Good music.

Gentle story of a middle-aged widower preparing to let his daughter start living her dream while coming to terms with his long-lost plans. Before returning the DVD, I made sure the songs were available on Youtube so that I can listen to them again. It's a 3-star movie, but I gave it an extra star because I liked the music so much.

Some light fare. An interesting premise which could have used some real life grit, because not everything works out perfectly for everyone in real life as it did for these characters.

A sweet and gentle story of a father who is struggling to keep his record store open. Dreading the approaching day his daughter will be leaving for college, he has the two of them record a sweet song. Without her knowing, he uploads it to Spotify and it becomes a huge hit over night. I loved this movie for it's original music, Nick Offerman's performance (not a typical role for him), and LGBTQ representation.

Not particularly memorable, although done well.

Excellent, fun, wholesome coming of age story and how we make meaning in life.

The only ones that seem to dislike it are those that are not LGBT supportive, and feel that there should be no LGBT representation in cinema.

Nice try. I tire of the brilliant, focused child of a confused, grieving, directionless parent looking for…? A lot of “discoveries” were made for both of them. Oh goody.
