Young@Heart (Stephen Walker, 2007)
“Experience the film that brought audiences to their feet…” etc; cue soft fade into wide angle tracking shot that envelopes you in the crushing sense of love that we’re all in this together. Or something. MOVE THAT BUS! is what it should say. We’re not allowed to love old people singing Clash songs in our own way — now we have to punched in the face by a fist the shape of Ty Pennington’s head, since it’s the treacly joymaking of his “Extreme Home Makeover” that this trailer is edited to suggest.
Also, let’s have it: a high stakes sing-off between Young at Heart and the Blue Ribbon Glee Club. Or maybe there’s a choir of indie rockers and crust punks somewhere who specialize in a capella versions of old time radio. Would that be inspiring? — Johnny Loftus
