Review June 2012

Based on the Tony nominated Broadway hit, Rock of Ages is a juke box mash up - part musical, part comedy, and part rock concert. It follows the story of two star-crossed lovers - a wanna be rocker named Drew Boley who works as a busboy at a Hollywood night club where he meets Sherrie Christian, a small town girl and aspiring actress. Together, the two pursue their romance and dreams in the big city. With a playful, all-star cast that includes Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and more, Rock of Ages is pure 80's nostalgia. Featuring covers from Bon Jovi to Whitesnake, Night Ranger to Twisted Sister, the film pulsates between power ballads and fist pumping anthems. In between, there's not a lot of depth or originality. It's a mindless satire. And for that, Rock of Ages won't stop the legions of fans from believin' in the power of rock n' roll.
