Not a very good flick...despite Jewel Shepard's presence
4 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

I only rented this because one of my fave b-movie actresses, Jewel Shepard, has a part in it. Its yer basic story of a girl trying to make it in the 1980's New Wave rock and roll scene in L.A. The script is dull, the movie is under lit, and they have a whole subplot with the main character's roommate that serves absolutely no purpose. There are a couple of not half bad 80's rock numbers that I liked, other than that, skip this film. For die hard Jewel Shepard fans only.
