A Great Film About The LA Punk Scene!
7 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best 80's punk movies out there. It's about a guy that works in his father's office and decides to break free of that life for a life of partying, clubs, and a punk rock lifestyle. It's full of laughs, good music, and life lessons. I didn't have many expectations before watching this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. If you can find it then watch it! Even if you just like fun, 80's, teen angst kind of movies, this one is for you. Great music (TSOL makes an appearance) and the acting wasn't half bad. I recommend this movie to anyone who has ever felt like "breaking free" of their normal routine and figuring out what living it up is all about.
