Kevin Bacon (Jason Lee) and Gene Balboa convince Jimmy Buffett to trick Loggins into making another movie song. Devoted Buffett fans kidnap Loggins, but McDonald and James Ingram (Wyatt Cenac) come ...
This gritty, hard-hitting rockumentary sheds light on a musical genre that generally gets short shrift---Yacht Rock. These actors, all dead-ringers for the music legends they portray, bring these misunderstood troubadors to life, and bring us a rare gift---the opportunity to see the story behind the beloved hits, and to relive those moments EXACTLY AS THEY HAPPENED. The profile of John Oates of the hit-making duo Hall and Oates was particularly revealing and provocative. And who can see the tragedy of Jim Messina, cast aside by superstardom-bound Kenny Loggins, living on the mean streets of Marina Del Rey and not shed a single, reflective tear? I'm a man, and all-man, but I'm not ashamed to say I wept like a small child. Koko would have given this a knowing nod of approval, had he not died in 1978. Only because there's no eleven yet, ten of ten.
