But Dreyfuss brings an easy authenticity to the role, especially while performing Buddy’s sets in clubs around the country. The film burbles along pleasantly, if a bit sleepily — the pace is rickety at best. It rarely breaks formula, and while the genre is serviceably executed, it’s not exactly a thrill. Kate Micucci and Chris Parnell are saddled with the rather thankless roles of the nagging progeny, and the film hardly gives them a chance to shine.
