“Funkytown” is a documentary filmed in the traditional shaky-handed, Hill Street Blues style about several Minneapolis bands playing in clubs and hoping for that big record contract. There is a lot of music in the film, and, being a documentary, the songs do in fact sound as if they were written by a bunch of unknown Midwestern bands. This turns out to be quite unfortunate for the audience. Also, if you’ve ever had to listen to the philosophic musings of burned-out, dope-smoking musicians, you can imagine much of the movie’s dialogue.
