Denim Dream
13 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Not much of a plot to interest anyone here, but some very sexy men in blue denim. Willem Dafoe, to my surprise, was once very spunky, and looks great as the tough guy muso hero. Better still, the bad guys, Hoot and Dink are a couple of real nasty pieces. The film had me longing to find that roadhouse and go and start a brawl, just to meet those hot men.
