Slide into the sleazy side of Show Biz, the dodgy side, in this fast paced Noir mash up of Dark Comedy, Crime and Classic Rock. When you’ve been a Rock Star as long as Marc Charles, you’ve seen a few Scams in your time, but never one quite like this. Cory, the dude from California isn’t just after Marc’s rock star mansion. He wants the lot, and with his corporation’s scumbag shakedown scheme he aims to get it.
To Marc it smacks of an old-time SCAM A-LAMA DING DONG rip-off. “Us Rock ‘n Rollers have been getting scammed and ripped off ever since they invented shiny suits and electric guitars,” Marc tells his pal Howie.
But Rock Stars don’t like being messed with, especially when their career is at stake and time is running out. Marc fights back, and boy, can he play dirty too! With the brains of his sidekick moneyman Howie, and Marc’s own charisma and front, he sets out to turn the tables on the “Pay-to-Play” scammers. Marc’s tough-as-nails Agent, the ever-horny Felicity, is right in the line of fire, and there’s a new girl too, Samira, aka Sam. But she’s from a different age. This alluring heartbreaker isn’t taking any of that Rock Dinosaur crap Marc tries to lay on her.
As he battles Cory, Marc keeps up the hi-jinks like any red-blooded rock star: Sex in a cupboard, duets with a Cowboy movie-star, a déjà vu jig-a-jig with his knife-throwing ex-wife – it’s all here, along with a Classic Rock and Soul soundtrack. That and some kinky KO’s from Morgana, a crazy Bad-Girl TV star, a little hot guitar, plus an absolute nutcracker of a plot twist at the end.
If you like Carl Hiaasen’s dark humour, this fast, amped-up rock music “winner takes all” duel will be just your thing. SCAM A-LAMA DING DONG lives up to its wacky title.
