Storyline

Prey For Rock & Roll is the story of Jacki and her all-girl rock and roll band, Clam Dandy, who are trying to make it in the LA club scene of the late 1980s. After ten years of being ignored by record producers, Jacki and the band find hope in one producer who promises to see them play and consider them for a contract. Jacki resolves to play this one last gig and then throw in the towel if she does not find success. Personal tragedies, however, threaten to rip the band apart, rocking the foundation of friendship and trust the women have built together. Ultimately, the band must find its strength in the music that is their passion and the thread that holds them together, inspiring them to prevail. Written by Cheri Lovedog

Trivia

Goofs

Jacki gives Faith a tattoo. Faith shows the tattoo to Sally and says, "Jacki just did it today." The Tattoo showed no signs of being new at all. No redness, no swelling, no irritation and no Vaseline covering it. It looked as if it had been done months ago. See more »

lived it, loved it, glad to see it on screen
4 June 2004 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

so i just finished watcing Prey for Rock and Roll and just finished reading the comments. i was here in los angeles when cheri lovedog (the writer) was doing her thing.

and she was doing it great. she took a piece of her life and made it something that all of America could watch. because if all of America had seen the real deal they would not no how to handle it. living in los angeles at the time was intense and this movie captured the desperation. the saddest thing about Hollywood has always been and will always be people who don't know when to quit. don't know when to stop drugs, don't know when to stop their dream. and i would say for a movie it gets the point across. gina gershon shows that she is more than a glam girl. she knows how to get dirty. drea de mateo shines. looked almost to real.. there is something to be said for that. all the girls did a good job. but this was not just a movie about making it in rock and roll. this was a movie about coming to terms with yourself. and that can sometimes be the hardest thing. i think cheri really shows that this is the biggest fight in Hollywood. and this is the fight that most people lose. it was also great to see francois on the screen. brought back some interesting memories. and Texas teri continues to rock. here is a woman that is living that dream. over forty and still going strong.
