Why do so many bands die before making it big. Here it is.
20 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Yea we know it's not "Born To Win", so going downhill with the band, some bad drugs and twisted sex has it's high and low points. If you want to join the boys for this Rock & Roll train wreck, check out how the big three are handled. First,Rock & Roll, the band stuff is the most interesting part of this movie, it has a real look at bands at this level of non-success. You can see this is where the filmmaker had the most fun and the most insight. The band members are not over done but real. Second, Sex, I wish this band had been more popular and had groupies. Mostly the lead singer and the girlfriend's(he would dump if he made it big) relationship. Could use more sex but what can't. Third, Drugs, This is the only part that we have seen to many times before. We needed a little more inspiration here. The filmmaker had fun with the R&R and the sex but not with the old monkey on the back. So in the end did you have fun going downhill with the band? Yea we had some laughs, some good times, some bad, some good songs and fighting robots. Sex,Drugs,Rock & Roll can be Dangerous. Don"t try this at home kids.
