Run Time: 84 minutes
The HeartThrob Boyz were the sixth best boy band in the 90s, but 16 years later they’re less “I Want It That Way” and more “Ice Cream, Netflix, and 16 Minutes of a Movie.” After their first album made them larger than life, all the group had to do was release another one to continue their rise to fame. But, after a decade and a half, the album is incomplete as the guys can’t find their mmmbop. BOY BAND is the hilarious send-up of the boy band hysteria of the 90s mixed with a bit of the reality that these cute boys eventually become overweight, middle-aged men on bended knees who find it hard to say goodbye to yesterday. When they run out of money and are down to their last few hours of studio time, the HeartThrob Boyz find the hardest thing is to quit playing games and finish their masterpiece while the world outside gets closer to the end of the road. Step by step, this comedy’s got it goin’ on. And it even has one of the funniest death scenes you’ll see on the big screen. You won’t want to say bye bye bye to BOY BAND. —T.W.
