When gifted singer-songwriter Charlotte Banks (Alyson Michalka) asks new kid in town Will Burton (Gaelan Connell) to manage her fledgling rock band, she appears to have just one goal in mind: go head-to-head against her egotistical musician ex-boyfriend, Ben (Scott Porter), at the biggest event of the year, a battle of the bands. Against all odds, their band develops a sound all its own with a real shot at success in the contest. Meanwhile, romance brews between Will and Sa5m (Vanessa Hudgens), who plays a mean guitar and has a voice to die for. When disaster strikes, it’s time for the band to make a choice: Do they admit defeat, or face the music and stand up for what they believe in?

Raleigh & Nashville are both AUGUST 6.

Signal Indicator

I love the line about "it's not really a privacy issue" when he encourages the driver to use her directional indicator, and the spastic knocking the hat off of his love interest is great.


I think this movie will be great, especially the music. It has such a good indie-vibe in it. I love Vanessa too!


i like to see this movie

looks great

looks great


if it is anything like the high school musicals it will be half way decent

i can't wait to see it!

Something to make you laugh and tear up!

What a cute movie. Thanks Shakefire for the screening. My husband and I went to see this and he said it was the best movie he had seen in a while. Nice plot and not totally predictable. Lisa Kudrow was not type cast in this movie and she was enjoyable in the role of a "mom". I highly recommend this for all ages. My husband and I are in the plus 50 crowd and we both enjoyed it.


This is not what I was expecting. It was funny, cute, a tear jerker at times.... It had everytrhing. You didn't know what to expect from everyone. Lots of surprises. Kudrow is brilliant. I loved it!!! My kids loved it!!!!


this really looks like a cute movie. I would love to see it.

good movie

when i entered the movie theater i thought that i knew what i would see - a teenie bopper movie about some wannabes who wanted to be in a band. to an extent that is what this movie was. that being said, i liked it a whole lot more than i thought that i would. it was funny in some parts and the music was decent. my friend and i also had a discussion after the movie about how much we liked lisa kudrow. it was something a little different from the roles that she has been cast in the past.


Thanks Shakefire for the screening. Middle schoolers are going to love this film!


I really enjoyed this film and think that preteens (tweenies) and young teens will enjoy it and their parents will be relieved that there's no drugs, sex, or cuss words in it.

The music was good and the acting was fine as well. Thanks Shakefire for the opportunity to see it.


Really enjoyed this film...a bit surprised that it was as good as it was. Good music and storyline. A good movie for kids. Thanks SF for the opportunity!!

I didn't expect this movie to

I didn't expect this movie to be good....just another "teeny bopper" movie. However, it was pretty good..... actually much better than I expected. The music was awesome!!!!
