John Corbett stars as “Flash,” a musician who has spent the last 25 years making a good living as a respected session man and hired guitar gun on live tours. Working for big stars like Madonna and Lady Gaga has afforded him a nice apartment, a new car, and plenty of cash. The one thing he’s never had is creative control -- he’s always playing someone else’s music. That’s why he’s willing to listen when Johnny approaches him about getting The Heathens back together. Well, that and the fact that Johnny’s smoking hot daughter is in the band. Now, Flash has decided to be a mature adult and forgive Johnny for sleeping with his wife back in 1992, by dating his daughter. But being an adult is harder than it seems when you’re surrounded by children.
