- 1 hr 36 min
Losers Take All is a coming-of-age comedy that takes place in the 1980s. The movie tells the story of four friends who make up a band called The Fingers. Winning a local battle-of-the-bands competition earns them the opportunity to tour with the up-and-coming rock band, The Living Daylights. Desperate to make it big, The Fingers jump at the chance to go on tour, but quickly realize that The Living Daylights' fans are not interested in their style of music. As a result, the tour is a complete disaster.
The lead singer of The Fingers, "Fuzz" (Kyle Gallner), is the driving force of the band. He is the one who wants to make it big, and he is the one who pushes the other three members of the band to take risks. "Ziggy" (Adam Herschman) is the bass player and the peacemaker of the group. "Skip" (Aaron Himelstein) is the drummer and provides the comic relief. "Wes" (Peter Brensinger) is the keyboardist and the quiet one of the group. He is also the one who writes most of the band's songs.
Tania Raymond plays Erica, a photographer who joins The Fingers and The Living Daylights on tour. Erica is a free spirit who is not interested in conforming to society's expectations. She provides a love interest for Fuzz, but her presence on the tour also causes tension between the members of The Fingers.
Allison Scagliotti plays Missy, a fan of The Living Daylights who becomes interested in Skip. Missy is a no-nonsense girl who is not afraid to speak her mind. She provides a source of inspiration for Skip.
As the tour progresses, The Fingers begin to feel like they are losing their identity. They are playing to half-empty venues and are not connecting with the audience. Frustrated and disillusioned, they turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with their disappointment.
Despite the setbacks, Fuzz refuses to give up on the band. He convinces the others to play an impromptu concert at a gas station, which turns out to be one of their best performances. The concert is captured on film by Erica, and The Fingers use the footage to create a music video that goes viral.
The movie ends with The Fingers returning home, having learned valuable lessons about themselves and their music. They are no longer concerned with making it big, but instead are focused on creating music that is authentic and reflects who they are as individuals.
Losers Take All is a light-hearted comedy that is full of heart. The characters are relatable, and the 80s setting is nostalgic without being over-the-top. While the movie touches on serious themes such as identity, addiction, and the pressures of fame, it does so in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. The soundtrack, which features original music by The Fingers, is also worth mentioning. It adds authenticity to the movie and is a reminder that at the heart of it all, Losers Take All is a movie about music and the people who make it.
Losers Take All is a 2013 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2.
