Four members of a high school band called Mystery do everything they can to attend a KISS concert in Detroit. In order to make it to the show they must steal, cheat, strip, deal with an anti-rock mom and generally do whatever it takes to see the band that has inspired them to be musicians. Written by

When Trip gets punched by Chongo, he is attached to a harness with a wire that is pulling him off his feet by a pulley that was digitally edited out, and the brick wall is actually made of rubber. See more »
When Jam gets his foot stuck in the bullworker, which also has the foot of the bed stuck in it, he pulls on his foot, and the other side of the bullworker releases and hits him in the face. If the bullworker was really stuck on the bed, the bed would have to have been lifted up for the other side to release. See more »

Take it easy man. This is the girls crapper, remember?
Aw, wake up Lex! We just watched Jam's mom torch our fucking KISS tickets man! Not REO Speedwagon, not Journey, not The Bay City Rollers. KISS, man! If you can think of a better reason to trash a girl's bathroom I'd sure like to hear it.

I liked detroit rock city for one reason and one reason only. I am a metal fan and this movie brought to the big screen the adrenalin fueled craziness that is Kiss and hard rock music in general. Anybody looking for "depth" in this, has the wrong movie. I like all types of movies and sometimes I like my movies deep. But not all the time. Sometimes I want to smile. Sometimes I want to be entertained. This movie does that and it does that well.
I think the bottom line is, if you are a Kiss fan or fan of hard rock in general you will love this. If you are not such a fan, but still open to movies where the sole purpose is to entertain you may like it. But if you hate Kiss or have no interest in their type of music in general your more likely to have no particular interest in this. Me, I thought it was great! Kiss forever! Rock and Roll all night!
