Storyline

Losers Take All is a comedy in which we follow "The Fingers," a fictional punk-pop band stumbling and staggering their way in the opposite direction of mainstream success, circa 1986. Fingers are faced with the unlikely opportunity of committing the ultimate indie rock sin: selling out. Do they stay true to their non-commercial DIY sound and ethos? Do they get in bed with corporate rock? Or do they simply keep getting wasted and implode into oblivion? Written by Miles Monroe

Trivia

Prior to filming, only Billy Kay knew how to play the instrument his character plays. Aaron Himelstein (Dave the bass player) had only played a little guitar, Peter Brensinger (Lance the drummer) had played keyboard, and Kyle Gallner had never sung outside of karaoke. The band "John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives", a local Memphis, TN band who performed the songs on the film's soundtrack (with the exception of Kyle Gallner's singing) trained the cast for 2 weeks in instrument training. Though only Kyle Gallner's singing is on the soundtrack, all four members of the Fingers knew how to play their songs for the film's shoot. See more »

Fun romp, great music
12 January 2014 | by rhondasmitSee all my reviews

After sitting through a complete train-wreck of a movie (my husband's choice) I figured I couldn't do any worse and picked "Losers take all" on Netflix, even though our musical tastes differ greatly. Amazingly we BOTH loved this movie - a rare occurrence.

I am not a movie critic, I don't care about actors, and I don't need to over-analyze; a movie that tells me a story, keeps me entertained, interested, and emotionally connected to the characters will get an easy 6/10 or higher ranking from me.

'Losers take all' does all of that and more; the acting was genuine and believable; and the trip back to the 1980s brought back memories; the camera was an unobtrusive observer without being unimaginative; but best of all, the movie made my husband and me laugh out loud frequently, and not once was I told to "turn the volume down"... the usual consequence of any music-related movie-watching that I enjoy.

In some films of the genre (a band forms and tries for stardom) the music sucks, or the actors clearly cannot play/sing, or most often... BOTH. This is not the case here. And yes, sure, there were some cliché moments, but they (as with all the funny parts) did not seem trite or artificial at all, but arose with organic authenticity. I especially liked how they integrated the 'on the road' experiences.

Although I was never really into punk and metal at the time, I loved the soundtrack for the film - great stuff! Made me feel 20 years young/er ; )
