“We’re going to change the course of human history – like the Wyld Stallyns in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure! ” So declares one half of the oddball musical duo at the centre of this highly likeable buddy movie.

For the other half, though – played by writer/director Ryan O’Nan – getting over being dumped is enough to justify a road trip that sees them inflict their indie guitar/kiddie-instrument fusion on anyone who’ll listen.

Nods to Hostel and Glengarry Glen Ross make for a cine-literate affair further buffered by a smart cameo from erstwhile Brat Packer Andrew McCarthy.
