Plot

BoyTown, the greatest boyband of the eighties and the group that started the boyband phenomenon leave their humdrum lives for one last crack at the big time. They return to the stage with slightly older fans and slightly larger pants to complete some unfinished business. These days they spend less time singing about tears, eternity, angels and their 'baby' and more time singing about divorce, shopping and picking up the kids from school.

As their triumphant tour draws to a conclusion all the personal issues that have been safely buried away for twenty years come bubbling to the surface with explosive consequences. Suddenly the band has to deal with: allegations of infidelity; paternity tests; a miming fiasco; a band member 'outing' himself live on stage; an awards night disaster; solo albums; a mysterious disappearance and a plane journey that will cement the BoyTown legend forever.

BoyTown Confidential

The official "BoyTown" website features clips from a mockumentary "BoyTown Confidential", hosted by Tony Martin as "Kenny Larkin", his character from the movie.

The mockumentary was supposed to be included in its entirety on the DVD release of "BoyTown", but was not included. Mick Molloy's Molloy Boy Productions has commented that it was left out due to lack of post-production funding, however Tony Martin said that he would have paid the estimated $5000 post-production cost as he believed it was one of his finest works. Speculation persists as to whether Molloy thought the mockumentary would upstage the film itself. This has led to an ongoing rift between long time collaborators Martin and Molloy.
