An effective recipe that's one-third Bruce Springsteen hagiography, one-third kitschy ‘80s recreation, and one-third feel-good father/son coming together.

When the end credits roll, it’s hard to decide whether the most appropriate feeling should be disgust, despair, or despondency.

If you’re in high school (or have ever gone through the experience), you’ll laugh quite a bit, wince more than once, and relate from start to finish.
