Storyline

A down and out rock 'n roll band, Hindenburg, kidnap their favorite British rock star Spazz-O (Maynard), and hold him hostage so he will listen to their music and make them famous. The problem is, Spazz-O's ex-porn star wife Holly Everest (Parks) and his back-stabbing manager, Dave Donovan (Ant), can't wait to get their hands on his fortune, and have hired a hitman to do him in. Thanks to the media feeding frenzy, Spazz-O's career is hotter than ever. Enter media mogul Thor Sturmundrang (Harry) with a big advance check. Now Spazz-O is worth more alive than dead. Dave must outwit the bumbling band, clumsy cops, ruthless record execs and terrifying terrorists to get his just reward. Written by Anonymous

It's far from perfect, but it means well...
30 June 1999 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This movie is full of more hilariously botched schemes, bizarro characters and odd-ball humor than you can shake a drum-stick at. It's pretty rough and goofy in places, but it certainly means well. Had it been released to theatres (as it should have been) instead of directly to home video, it would more than likely have joined ranks with its rock-comedy cult forefathers: films like "This Is Spinal Tap", "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains" and the "Rocky Horror Picture Show". Who knows? It may still!
