Wasn't expecting much but in return I got an entertaining film that didn't take itself too seriously. Ridiculous and spirited, a nice enough watch.

A high spirited rock musical, with a robust amount of 80's hair hits and a taste for humor. The plot/characters may be a cliche, but the movie covers them in a knowingly cheesy fashion. Speaking of 'covers', the song performances are well done and generate the right amount of silly when needed. This turned out to be a surprisingly fun watch.

Rock of Ages

Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough) is your typical small-town girl from Oklahoma who decides to pursue her dreams of being a singer in Los Angeles. Upon arriving, she is mugged and loses her suitcase with all her favorite records. Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), a city boy, witnesses Sherrie being mugged and helps her out by getting her a job as a waitress where he works, at the Bourbon Room.

Everything is going just peachy and then that silly thing that happens in so many teenage love stories occurs where one person assumes the other one did something to betray them, and instead of actually confronting them about it, they just assume they're right and ruin everything they have going for them. (I think this is just about the moment where half the audience realized it was only a matter of ...

Rock of Ages review rockin fun with humor

For those who dig 80's rock, humorous musicals while playing satire to boy bands, then this is for your. This reviewer that enjoyed Van Halen, GN'R, Skid Row back in the day, if your into this type of bands, this film's soundtrack will definitely be heaven to your ears. Sherrie (Julianne Hough) travels to LA to become a singer and accidentally meets Drew (Diego Boneta), who dreams of making it big with his band. Dennis (Alec Baldwin), and his right-hand man, Lonny (Russell Brand) try to revive the bar. Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) performs but Patricia Whitmore (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is negative of the rock star's lifestyle. The cheesy simple lines and length killed the fun. On the positives, the rockin sounds, surprisingly good humor, performance of Cruise and humor of Brand made this ...

Movie Review of Rock of Ages

I don't want to brag or anything, but my high school and college years were spent in a time period known as" the 80's", where AquaNet and mullets were plentiful, and the music by bands like Journey, Guns N Roses, and my personal favorite, Def Leppard, was not just great, it was EPIC. Imagine then how my little "hair metal" loving heart skipped a beat when I saw the previews for 'Rock of Ages'!

THE GOOD: Based on a Broadway musical and set on Hollywood's Sunset Strip, 'Rock of Ages' is the story of two young rock star wannabees: Sherrie (Julianne Hough) and Drew (Diego Boneta), who fall in and out of love at the infamous and nearly broke Bourbon Room, the place that gave Rock God Stacee Jaxx (played by Tom Cruise) his start. As manager of the Bourbon Room, Dennis (Alec Baldwin) hopes t...

Unsurprisingly I got an update today that the soundtrack made it #1 on the soundtrack, indie and hard rock charts and #15 overall on the billboard top 200 - who knew how well Tom Cruise could rock out?

Thanks for instilling some interest in me, Chris.  I actually forgot about this one, but I agree that it does look like some fun cheese.  And the fact that I already know all the songs going in might add to the fun.

Surprisingly entertaining musical - it doesn't take itself seriously at all - which actually works in its favor - a bit manufactured, but the over-the-top nature of the 80s hairband/power ballads just fits right in with the over-bright theatrics.

I can't have my review up until Friday, but I can say that this is one film I went into with pretty minimal expectations and left with a whole different perspective. The trailer does not do the film justice - so if you're a fan of the 80s, and don't mind a bit of cheese, this should do the trick. It's not going to join the ranks of West Side Story, The Sound of Music or Fiddler on the Roof but as pure entertainment, you couldn't ask for much more.
