Joan Jett's misspent youth
21 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Two years before her solo career took off, Joan Jett was without a band (The Runaways had just split) and she was contracted to do a low-budget B-flick called "We're All Crazy Now", a Beatlesesque look at a day in the life with The Runaways. Since the band was no more (and guitarist Lita Ford had the good sense not to sign on the dotted line), Joan was the only band member to appear. The movie shut down after only half was completed, yet here it is--resurrected with a framing story starring Ray Sharkey--and it's of great interest to Jett-fanatics. Sharkey plays a filmmaker under pressure to complete his latest opus (a rock movie starring...Joan Jett!) while a group of unseen people comment on everything that's going on (and this includes belittling Joan so badly, I'm surprised she didn't sue). I felt really grimy after watching this sludge-fest. The footage of Joan is indeed terrific (she's beautiful in her short hair, jeans and cowboy hat or running around the streets of Hollywood), but you have to sit through some disgusting, degrading material just to catch the Jett moments. Thankfully, the bootlegs of this video made the rounds in 1988 and '89, and seemingly have everyone who cares satisfied. Fester in peace. * from ****
