When Mark Wahlberg tumbled down the stairs for Izzy's first Steel Dragon performance, he did it at a real rock concert. At first the unaware fans thought he'd fallen for real and were shocked into silence. After a few takes they realized it was an act and stopped caring. See more »
On the tour bus, AC offers Izzy something that he says is good for writing lyrics. Later on, Kirk tells Izzy he and A.C. do all the writing. Why offer him something that's good for writing lyrics if AC and Kirk do all the writing? A.C. might just have temporarily forgotten that rule or might just have lied to Chris to make him feel more welcome as a new member of the band or Kirk hadn't informed A.C. that Chris wasn't going to be allowed to contribute any music to the band.

Stand up and Shoooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuutttttttt!!!!!!!!
I must admit I wasn't expecting much on this movie. I was surprised I truly enjoyed it as much as I did. The script wasn't oscar material, but it wasn't horrible either. The acting was great by Mark Wahlberg. Jennifer Aniston had a great supporting role, and looked lovely as ever. What made this movie for me was the music. If you do not like 80's glam metal or hair bands, then you probably wont like this movie. Its all about being a rockstar. Some cliche's were present, but didn't bring down the movie at all. I would recommend it to anyone who likes rock and roll and remember to Stand up and Shout!!! 8 of 10 for great acting and awesome music.
