review by
Mike Haberfelner

Once upon a time, Jack (Jason Edward Hammel) and Bonnie (Kori Gardner) were a promising indie rock duo who back when found their love for each other through music, and their career was on the right tangent - when they made the mistake to sign a lucrative contract to become the Rumperbutts, a band playing kiddie songs for a largely kiddie crows wearing stupid animal costumes. They are successful alright, both on TV and on tour, but they more and more have the feeling they've sold their souls, plus they're openly talking about divorce, as Jack has long started an affair with Ashlee (Vanessa Ray), a supporting actress on their show, while Bonnie sleeps with their manager Gavin (Arian Moayed) - and then they both receive mysterious invitations to a bar and there meet Richie (Josh Brener), who claims to be a magical being and who offers to bring their life back on track. Of course they don't believe him, but accept a joint from him just so he leaves them alone. They wake up in bed together with no idea how they got there, and what's worse, a video of them has turned up on the internet showing them completely high screaming insults at their fans. Naturally, they're fired pretty much on the spot ... and enter Richie again, who promises to help them with their career. And making non-kiddie music again really fans their desire, not only for their project and for music, but also for one another. But of course, it's not as easy as that, as it's not long before Gavin wants them back as the Rumperbutts, seeing their fanbase is more forgiving than thought, and when they refuse, he puts heaven and earth in motion to make them fail at their comeback as indie band ...

 

The Rumperbutts is a rather charming blend of musical, showbiz satire and romantic comedy, one that escapes being cheesy by its quirky approach and also its indie music soundtrack, and that despite its somewhat far-fetched premise remains relatable throughout. And thanks to a clever script, a direction subtle enough to give the actors room to breath but on point to make certain scenes pop, and a very competent ensemble, this has turned out to be a very entertaining movie.
