Some people sing to their own tune. Even when they're singing someone else's song.
Violet Annie Getty seems to have a secret admirer but she sings to her own tune, including when she's singing someone else's song and waitressing. And that's just fine with her in this family-friendly dark comedy with lots of pet romping.
No pets were harmed in this film but they were fed plenty of treats.
Thanks and apologies to Bon Jovi. Enjoy!
