As a movie "My Boyfriend's Back", a fictitious tale of a 60s girl group getting back together for an 80s TV special, failed to really do it for me but as a concept I thought it was great. So "My Boyfriend's Back" is a tale of a fictitious band The Bouffants getting together for a 60s reunion and that is the style of movie, a reunion movie. To get himself through Princeton Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) has taken to online gambling, not only participating himself but working as an affiliate to introduce others to the gambling culture. When his brother dies in a car crash put down to him being drunk Jack Carter (Sylvester Stallone) returns home to the old stomping ground he left for a better life as a financial enforcer in Vegas.
Driving to see their relatives Dan and his heavily pregnant wife Mindy have a run in with a guy in a truck and when they stop at a roadside store Dan has words with the driver.
Carolyn Raeburn (Christina Cox) never thought she had anything to worry about when it came to her daughter Laura (Tina Ivlev) as like her she worked hard and at just 16 is graduating High School. Spring break is here and three friends who plan to party hard at Daytona Beach find themselves getting lost and ending up in their car in a small town surrounded by a group of locals including the mayor, Mr. Following her mother's suicide many years earlier Callie Ross (Elizabeth Gillies) fell out with her father George (William R.

In fact if Tom Hanks ever thinks of doing a sequel to "That Thing You Do!" I recommend he watch "My Boyfriend's Back" to gain some inspiration. As such whilst the initial build up is slightly humorous from Vickie singing in a bowling alley and being interrupted by the PA to Debbie embarrassed by her past the crux of the movie are the issues. Nicholas (Jesse Metcalfe) is an ambitious rookie TV journalist who wants to be doing hard hitting pieces rather than fluff pieces on whether gourmet coffee is worth the money.
Now as to why it didn't really do it for me, I suppose part of it comes down to the fact it now looks very dated and whilst you try to take into account things such as big 80s hair it does make it a bit, well sort of cheesy. And in typical reunion movie style we have a mix of the old and the new, there is Vickie's jealousy of Debbie who was always the leader and then there is Chris who is tired of being walked all over not just by Vickie and Debbie but also her husband. And whilst I loved the concept and the fact that each of the women unsurprisingly have a few personal issues to deal with the actual writing is not as strong as it could have been. Of course this means we have a rocky road to whether or not the will perform together.Now my problem is that the actual writing of this isn't as strong as it could be and it seems a case of have an issue, have a row and they hug and make up. But having said all that, whilst "My Boyfriend's Back" failed to blow me away it was still entertaining and the 60s music with some of the original singers appearing makes it pleasant enough.TV exec Harry Simon (John Sanderford) tracks down Vickie Vine (Judith Light) of 60s girl group The Bouffants as he wants to reunite her with Debbie (Jill Eikenberry - Arthur) and Chris (Sandy Duncan) to appear in a 60s TV special he is putting together built around their big hit "My Boyfriend's Back".
I know we are talking an 80s TV movie here but that lack of depth and grittiness makes it all quite shallow despite the actual issues themselves being believable.


With Vickie still performing, all but in a bowling alley bar and Chris now a repressed housewife both keen for the union Debbie is less so having carved out a career as a business woman. And as already mentioned with this being an 80s movie we are talking 80s fashion, well big 80s hair and big sparkly earrings and no matter how much you try to take it into account it does now look quite cheesy.Thankfully the actual performances of are trio of stars Sandy Duncan, Jill Eikenberry and Judith Light are quite enjoyable, there is some nice banter between them and they each play distinct if a little cliche characters. But with a little persuasion they reform although not with out a few problems along the way as old and new issues put things it jeopardy. What is also good is the music and the various 60s songs are a joy to listen to especially when we get to seem some original 60s stars singing their famous songs.
In many ways it is the soundtrack which keeps "My Boyfriend's Back" at average because if the songs hadn't been so recognizable it would have been a struggle.What this all boils down to is that "My Boyfriend's Back" is an okay movie which has good idea but doesn't have the strong writing to make it really work.
