My Fun "Bandslam" Interviews with Vanessa Hudgens, Lisa Kudrow, and Much, Much More! Rock On! 

First of, I love "Bandslam." I didn't know what to expect walking in, and I was clapping like a true fan walking out!

From the production company that gave us "Twilight," Summit Entertainment continues to delight this summer ("The Hurt Locker" is also from Summit, and one of the best films this year).

Gaelan Connell stars as Will Burton, a high school student with extensive knowledge in music. When Will and his mom Karen (Lisa Kudrow) move to New Jersey, his musical dreams come true.

Will, together with the school's most popular girl, Charlotte (Alyson Michalka of Aly & AJ), assemble a fledgling rock band. Now, they much compete against the best of the best in the biggest event of the year, a battle of the bands. Bandslam!

But first, Will must profess his true love for Sa5m (the 5 is silent), a quirky young girl played sweetly by "High School Musical's" Vanessa Hudgens. Oh, and like a die-hard rock fan, Will tells his whole story to David Bowie via email.

I credit the film's awesomeness (:happy) to director Todd Graff ("Camp"). Graff understands music and kids and knows how to blend them well. Graff co-wrote the script with Josh A. Cagan who came up with the story.

"Bandslam" opens August 14th, so make sure you watch it! And "Twilight" fans, you'll get to see the new trailer for "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" with "Bandslam."

So here are my fun one-on-one interviews:


Both Vanessa and Aly are super-sweet! We talked about:

*** How they got involved with BANDSLAM
*** How they prepared for their roles? Guitar Heroes anyone?
*** Vanessa Hudgens' Filipino Culture -- she spoke in Tagalog to me! Yay! :happy


The mom and son team have great chemistry in person! We talked about:

*** Their involvement with the film
*** Working with Director Todd Graff
*** Gaelan's kissing scenes with both Vanessa Hudgens and Aly Michalka
*** And why you have to see BANDSLAM right now
