A 2009 teen musical dramedy, music nerd and Music/DavidBowie fan Will Burton (Gaelan Connell) moves to New Jersey, eager to start fresh since he was bullied back at his old school in Ohio. Once there, he meets [[EmotionlessGirl Sa5m]] [[note]][[MyNaymeIs the 5 is silent]][[/note]] (Music/VanessaHudgens), and Charlotte (Creator/AlysonMichalka), a former [[AlphaBitch cheerleader]] who, impressed by Will's knowledge of music, takes him on as the manager of her band (later called "I Can't Go On, I'll Go On") as she tries to defeat her ex-boyfriend, Ben Wheatley, in a music competition known as [[TitleDrop Bandslam]]. The film also features Creator/LisaKudrow as Will's mom. It is a good movie, despite a [[ExecutiveMeddling questionable marketing strategy]] on the part of Summit Entertaiment, its distributor.
