If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed.
Jason Priestly plays Asa, a thirty-ish guy that is a little without direction. A bit of a deadbeat dad and 'cool cat' with the ladies, he finds solace in classic films featuring his favourite Fred Astaire-esque actor and imagining the world as it was then.

You always have to be wary of a movie where the main characters start singing without any real warning (see "Heartbreakers"). I can only imagine that this script was originally a half-hour short film that, for some reason, was stretched into 90 minutes. Dave Foley and Dave Thomas' characters are a little out of place; I assume it's the content and not the execution. Cutie-patootie Tanya Allen (Starhunter) plays the love interest and she does her job well.

If you're a huge fan of Moulin Rouge or Chicago, you might want to avoid this would-be musical. However, if you can look past the low budget, you'll see a cute flick.

Tip: If you're gonna have a running gag of subtitles for the thick-accented Scottish character, get the words off the characters' faces.

Hardly great, but mostly harmless. 6 out of 10.
