Review of Mr. Music (1998) movie, by Stefan Stenudd
Caroline meets those who do not age, and this ability can be transmitted. But there are grisly downsides. Click the image to see the book at Amazon (paid link).
He even acts and behaves in a way, which is consistent with what one would expect from the MAD figure. You know: "What, me worry?"
Tucker plays the lead in the movie, as a high school kid allowed to be a music industry exec for a while. The usual stuff happens, you can guess the whole plot without me giving another clue. Just one decent idea in it, really — to put a teenager in charge. That is revolutionary, if pulled through to any extent, so of course it doesn't happen here.
No, the only sparkle in the movie is Tucker, who has the ability to be so darn jolly, and still express a personality, lots of charm, and some real acting potential. It's no surprise to me, checking the IMDb, that he's done more movies later on — scripts and characters of greater challenge, at that. I have to check them out.
