Being a professional musician, I suppose I can't give a standard review of this flick. Simply as a movie, I suppose it will pass the time. The acting is well done, and I guess there's some kind of conflict / resolution. Sort of.

-But as a study of the life of a jazz musician, it couldn't be any more simplistic or cliché'd.

My guess is that even non-musicians will find themselves saying, "you gotta' be kidding me" more than a few times.

Besides that, there's very little action or interesting dialog, though I've seen worse.

Watch it if there's absolutely nothing else on.
