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 »

When is the video coming out?
25 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

Don't let the title fool you, this movie ROCKS! I love movies about the sixties, but many of them that came out in the nineties just plain sucked, so my expectations weren't high, and ended up just watching the second half the first time it was ever on. Man.. I was made when I realized how much I missed. Great thing VH1 is now playing it death. To bad CBS is being cheap and not releasing it to video.
