Storyline

A day in Hollywood, 1972, with young people looking for the 24 hours that will change their lives. Zach will open that night for a British rocker at Whisky a Go-Go; he lives in a canyon and plays impromptu duets with a mysterious guitarist he doesn't see. Tammy is a costume designer, open to quick sex with the various rockers she works with and loved from afar by Michael, a photographer recovering from a case of the clap. His good friend is Felix, a morose, alcoholic songwriter. On hand for comic relief is Marty Shapiro, a fast-talking record producer. Getting ready for the gig at the club, Zach's performance, and the early-morning aftermath comprise the film. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

In case you are watching this film to see Anna Friel... don't.
18 May 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I, like most probably watched this film because the striking Anna Friel was in it and it was not even worth enduring this awful film to catch sight of her. Poor Friel either gets bad parts in bad movies (An Everlasting Peace) or gets bad parts in terrible movies (Mad Cows.) Albeit a leading role, "Sunset Strip" is more of the same.

The film progresses a 70s wannabe rock band trying to get a break and whilst the film is tedious Friel is actually fairly good, there are a few descent scenes and the Ali G (UK) look-alike is funny. But as I write this I feel I am being too generous after looking at Friel her not wearing a bra for most of the film…

Before you ask - no we do not see anyone strip nor are there any notable dirty moments. The closest we get is seeing half of Anna Friel's breast. - Only a mega Anna Friel fan is going to be able endure the whole 90 minutes.
