I thought I already posted on this once? I guess not ... this is an awesome biography of a band that never really got the credit they deserved because they were cut short so fast. The movie is great, I love the music and the acting was decent. I give it a 7/10
The real band behind Eddie and the Cruisers is called John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band; but all of their albums have the name Eddie and the Cruisers AND the John Cafferty name, because Eddie and the Cruisers is the thing that got them famous. They have 5 or 6 albums other than the movie soundtrack, but they all say "Eddie and the Cruisers" along with their real name. Kind of confusing, I know.
