Trivia

The concert scenes were shot at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. It had fallen into disrepair and was due for a renovation after filming was completed. This essentially meant that the production team could trash the theater, knowing that it was going to be refurbished after they had gone. See more »

Goofs

When Susie is changing clothes in the street to go to the party, the camera follows her old clothes in the street and pans around to Susie in her party clothes. As the camera pans around to her, you can see in the bottom right corner the track the camera rolls on. See more »

I got a ripping laugh from this movie
8 June 2004 | by (Norfolk, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

I laughed my butt off when I first saw this flick in college. The parodies of famous rock stars (courtesy of Malcolm McDowell), punk rock, and blues artists was very well done. The drug jokes (one guy sneaking into the theatre dressed as a joint, the magic water) were absolutely hilarious for their time. One of my favorites was when several different versions of "Hoochie Coochie Man" were performed onstage. King Blues opened the set with a Jewish backup band; I rolled on the floor laughing as Blues was frustrated over the band sent to perform with him. Once King Blues was finished, the band Nada (featuring Lee Ving as Piggy) blitzed their way through a fast, furious, and very impassioned rendition. Piggy was a definite show-stealer as Nada'a masochistic lead singer! Ah, then Reggie Wanker steps onstage and does his slick version. The Wanker almost falls flat but is saved by a ripping drum solo by Doors beatmeister John Densmore. Another scene which got me laughing was when Reggie Wanker started listening to his private member...I always thought listening to IT would get me in trouble, but it saved Wanker's career! Lou Reed, in a Dylanesque role, was wonderful as the singer/songwriter Auden who uses the scenic route on a cab to give him inspiration for his music. Don't try to think your way through this movie...just sit back, put your mind on cruise control, and enjoy the ride!!!
