Great movie - hope to be able to see it again.
This was a great movie. I saw it when it came out and have always hoped to see it again. I particularly loved the studio scene where they were recording Come Go with me. The offhand way the song went from blah to fantastic, and the way the group and the crew all went nuts over it was really fun. It has stuck in my mind all these years.
