Boytown (2006) Film Review


I loved Get Ready to be Boyzvoiced (2000) and so have been hesitant to watch Boytown for a long time. See, it’s about a boy band from the 80s who, twenty-something years later, decide to mount a comeback. I assumed a few things: the key one being that they would fail., and I didn’t think that would be all that funny. But what if they succeeded?

I loved it. It was ridiculous and the songs were, for the most part, pretty awful, but I quite enjoyed it. There were parts that I didn’t love – I found the stuck in the closet gay man plot quite trite, and the end was appalling. But despite those things, I really enjoyed it.
