Description
Jimmy Rabbitte, a self-proclaimed promoter, decides to organize an R&B group and after a long round of auditions, he makes two inspired discoveries: Deco, an abrasive and alcoholic streetcar conductor and Joey 'The Lips' Fagan, a horn player. But do they have what it takes to make the big time?

Memorable, lingering in one's mind after it has ended. Perhaps, in the end, it's a tad wiser than it initially lets on.

It's a relaxed, colorful creation, remaining true to rascally human behaviors while respecting the unifying power of music. Downright irresistible.
