"High Fidelity" for the tween set
This weekend, I took the kids to see "Bandslam" which is a "battle of the bands" movie set in New Jersey. On the surface, it's one big movie cliche: there's the unpopular music-genius kid, the blonde cheerleader, and the bookish, brooding but pretty girl who comes to life at the big competition.
Her name, by the way is Sa5m (the 5 is silent), Vanessa Hudgens up there.
Somehow it all comes together in an upbeat ska rendition of Bread's cheesy classic "Everything I own." Check it out.
