“Rock of Ages” is a movie-musical based off of the Broadway musical of the same name. It follows the adventures of Sherrie and Drew, a young couple. The film begins with Sherrie arriving in Los Angeles, and meeting Drew, who works at a rock and roll club called ‘The Bourbon Room’. The club is deep in debt, causing the owners to call in Stacee Jaxx, a famous rock star, to perform. They hope that the funds raised from Stacee’s performance will be enough to pay off the debt. However, nothing goes as planned, and the movie’s characters are launched into a strange series of events.
While the Broadway version of “Rock of Ages” was a hit, the movie version was a massive flop. The characters are dull and flat, and the plot is confusing and not at all like the musical. The songs themselves can be considered mediocre covers at best, and the dance sequences are headache-inducing. “Rock of Ages” seemed so promising, what with its all-star cast and Broadway history, but it failed to deliver.
This movie is appropriate for people ages fifteen and up. There is strong sexual content and various curse words strewn throughout the movie. It is a shame that “Rock of Ages” was so terrible, as it had potential to be a fantastic movie-musical.

I really loved this movie! I recommend it to anyone who loves rock n' roll! Tom Cruise was awesome, and the actors were great at singing!

Give the actors credit, they belted out those 80's tunes for their own parts in this Broadway musical adaption. Could be much worse right?

A LOT better than I was expecting! If you are a fan of 80's music, you will find yourself singing along. What impressed me most was the actors did their own singing. Tom Cruise looked amazing and his singing was great too. Wasn't sure how that would be, since his singing in Top Gun wasn't the greatest :)

I have to admit i like the movie. Anyone living in that age, big hair, rock music, clubs that were a bit cheap and dirty, LOL It was fun!

more lyrics from "Don't Stop Believin'": Working hard to get my fill,
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin anything to roll the dice,
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

(chorus)

Dont stop believin
Hold on to the feelin
Streetlight people

Just a small town girl, livin in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south detroit
He took the midnight train goin anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night

Dennis Dupree: Paul! You're early!

Paul Gill: Actually, I told Stacee the gig was last night, so technically we're a day late... don't tell him.
