Trivia

In a deal reminiscent of the one brokered in Mel Brooks' _The Producers_, shares were sold in the film to a Wall Street tax shelter group, effectively meaning that it didn't need to be released and was designed to lose money so that others would make money. Director Allan Arkush learned this during filming and was thoroughly demoralized by it, knowing that he was making a film that no one would see. See more »

Goofs

When Auden walks straight out into the street, one car barely misses him and two more (blue car and the same orange car that Nada and her band arrive at the theatre in) skid to one side and almost crash. In the next shot, the blue car is still there, but the orange car (which should have been blocked in by the blue car) is gone. See more »

This should be a classic but no one has seen it.
25 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the most under viewed movies I can think of. If you have a sense of humor about musicians and their lifestyles, this is a great watch. I recommend this as the second feature on a double bill with 'This is Spinal Tap'. This movie is funnier than many 'A' list comedies and should have a larger fan base. Check it out.
