Table 19

"Table 19" is a film with some genuinely funny moments, and the movie's plot and quality is elevated due to the terrific cast.

Dove Approved for All Ages

Movies about teen-aged rock bands have been done before. So, what's different about "Bandslam" you ask? Well, for one thing, this is actually a very good movie.
