CGiii Comment

By cutting out 2 scenes...this would have been a very different, much better film.
The dream sequence in the fish factory - pointless and tacky. But, worst of all, the karaoke scene - without the karaoke...a scene that sets itself up to present a 'fabulous' vocal does absolutely nothing - it's actually rather embarrassing...a serious letdown and an unforgivable directorial error.
Such a shame - despite the good performances.


The(ir) Blurb...

The unique and outspoken Leo stands out from the crowd that he finds himself in through no fault of his own. This isn t ideal when working in a small fish cannery in Alaska. His dreams of leaving this small town appear impossible, until a new boy starts to work at the cannery and sees Leo for the international superstar he was destined to be.
