Zac Efron stars as Cole, a wannabe DJ searching for that one hit track that will help him escape the San Fernando Valley with his party-promoter friends and earn the affections of his mentor’s (Wes Bentley) much younger girlfriend (Emily Ratajkowski). Directed by Max Joseph (MTV’s Catfish), the film fakes emotion with flashing lights and a pulsing soundtrack, and before Cole realizes the music was in him this entire time (ugh), the story falls flat.
