Garage Days ★★½ 2003 (R)
Sydney, Australia garage band tries to hit it big in this goofy comedy directed by Proyas. Freddy (Gurry) just wants to make it big as the singer of a rock and roll band, but he has to cope with the quirks and problems of his bandmates: girlfriend/bassist Tanya (Miranda), guitarist with an identity crisis Joe (Stiller), and dedicated drug user/drummer Lucy (Sadrinna) who spends more time creating pharmaceutical cocktails than practicing the drums. Further complicating the mix is the attraction between Freddy and Joe's girlfriend, Kate (Stange) and the band's misguided attempt to blackmail a bigtime manager (Csokas) to come see them play. Proyas fills the movie with inventive visuals and keeps the comedy level high, but with characters that alternate between appealing and one-dimensional, and a familiar plot, some may find too little substance to go with the style. 105m/C DVD . AU Maya Stange, Russell Dykstra, Andy Anderson, Marton Csokas, Kick (Christopher) Gurry, Pia Miranda, Brett Stiller, Chris Sadrinna, Tiriel Mora; D: Alex Proyas; W: Alex Proyas, Dave Warner; C: Simon Duggan; M: Antony Partos, David McCormack.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
