One Chance (2013)
It's surprisingly funny to begin with. The comedy never fully goes away, because as an underdog sometimes the best defence against the world is an ability to laugh at its hardships, but it does get swamped by sentimentality, overplaying how the protagonist effectively conquers his nerves and silences the taunts of naysayers with a big, stirring voice.
His supportive girlfriend, Julz (Alexandra Roach), was delightful.
