Goofs

Bill Haley is shown performing at the start of part 2 as a solo act. In the 1950s (and indeed throughout his rock and roll career) he always worked in conjunction with The Comets. The band shown backing Haley at the start of part 2 is not The Comets. See more »

If this movie gets released on DVD, I'll buy a DVD player.
23 January 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Superior old-fashioned entertainment; all story with no unnecessary filler. Very refreshing for this era. Bonnie Sommerville was outstanding; her facial eloquences expressing all the feelings from joy and happiness, to pain and sorrow, were absolutely wonderful. She made the movie story seem believable. The new music in the film, shows that great tunes with harmony, substance, melody, and excitement can still be written and performed.
