Almost no one's ever heard of flamboyant, would-be Broadway director Corky St. Clair's hometown of Blaine, Missouri. But Corky fully expects Blaine will be his ticket to Broadway when he writes, directs, choreographs and costumes a local show celebrating Blaine's 150th anniversary in this hilarious comic spoof.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This riotously deadpan mockumentary about aspiring community theater performers never stoops to ridicule oft-ridiculous characters.

The comedy has the slow burn of a richly nuanced and non-judgmental character study.

Common Sense Says
Fab small-town spoof; subtle humor may bore kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this mockumentary contains some strong language, but the number of times bad and borderline-bad words are used can be counted on one hand. Aside from a little innuendo and a brief discussion of one character's penile reduction surgery, this lighthearted comedy avoids sexual references/visuals. That said, the main character gives off a stereotypical homosexual vibe, but his orientation and intimate relationships are never brought into play (except when the character divulges that he enjoys picking out fabulous pantsuits for his wife). Parents should also know that some characters smoke and drink. Set in a small Midwestern town and heavy with positive themes like patriotism, civic pride, and strengthening the community, this comedy is relatively tame for its R rating. Even so, younger kids may not enjoy or understand the film's mix of subtle and campy humor.
