Bang Bang Baby is a quirky, indie musical film from 2014, directed by Jeffrey St. Jules. It tells the story of Stepphy (played by Jane Levy), a small-town girl with big dreams of becoming a singer. She lives in Lonely Arms, a remote town that seems stuck in the past, where the only entertainment is the local drive-in theater. Stepphy works as a waitress at the diner, where she meets the handsome mechanic, Bobby (played by Justin Chatwin), who is the object of her affection.

One day, Stepphy learns that a famous producer is coming to town to audition local talent for his new movie. Excited about the opportunity, Stepphy spends all her money on a new dress and performs at the audition. However, she doesn't get the role and, feeling rejected, she goes to the drive-in theater to watch a movie.

While watching the movie, something mysterious happens, and a strange green light appears in the sky. Soon after, weird things start happening in Lonely Arms, such as strange creatures roaming the streets and a deadly gas leak. As the town descends into chaos, Stepphy becomes obsessed with the idea that Bobby is going to leave her for his ex-girlfriend. In an attempt to win him back, Stepphy reaches out to a rock and roll star, who she believes can help her become a famous singer and impress Bobby.

As the plot unfolds, we see Stepphy's world start to unravel, and the idyllic town of Lonely Arms becomes a strange and dangerous place. With a nod to classic 1950s B-movies, Bang Bang Baby explores themes of love, loss, and the consequences of dreaming big. There's plenty of music and dancing, along with some dark humor and a touch of sci-fi.

Jane Levy shines as Stepphy, capturing the character's innocence and determination in equal measure. Justin Chatwin brings charm and charisma to the role of Bobby, the sexy mechanic who captures Stepphy's heart. David Reale rounds out the cast as the hapless Mayor of Lonely Arms, who is in over his head when the strange events start happening in town.

The film's standout feature is undoubtedly its soundtrack. The original songs, composed by Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew, are catchy and memorable, ranging from upbeat rock and roll numbers to haunting ballads. They help to elevate the film's off-kilter aesthetic, adding to the overall sense of surrealism and whimsy.

Overall, Bang Bang Baby is a quirky, entertaining film that's sure to appeal to fans of indie cinema and musicals. Its unique blend of sci-fi, romance, and humor creates a world that's both familiar and strange, and the performances from the talented cast help to ground the film's fantastical elements. With its infectious soundtrack, charming characters, and offbeat story, Bang Bang Baby is a delightfully weird and wonderful film experience.
