Trivia:

Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: 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 »
Quotes:
Jacki:OK, two dykes, a wannabe rock star, and a tequila guzzling speed freak walk into a restaurant. I always imagined it would be a bit more, I don't know, glamorous. I mean we'd be in this big beautiful office, we'd sign on the dotted line, and we'd cut to band on stage, playing to thousands of adoring fans. Wow, I can't believe that my whole future is hanging in the balance at the Big Drip Cafe.See more »

Breathing in the music., 16 September 2009
Author: lost-in-limbo from the Mad Hatter's tea party.

Glamorous… no way. The low-scale feature "Prey for Rock and Roll" is far from a sugar-coated rags-to-riches tale, but a scorching and soul-seeking drama (they might be making ends meat, but they enjoy and live for 'their' music than looking for fame… but they slog it out the hard and long way to finally see it that way) set in the hot and heavy punk rock scene captured in an almost imitate documentary style. It wasn't what I was expecting that's for sure, as the music is its core (with some good musical pieces by Gina… who did perform all of her own vocals and '6 minutes' was something special), but wrapped around it is a very conventional character formed, but strikingly biting story (based on rocker Cheri Lovedog's autobiographical) driven by its authentic grit and picture-perfect performances with excellent dynamics led by the outstandingly simmering Gina Gershon. She lives her character psychically, but also mentally through the highs and lows. Pouring out emotion (and there's a lot from anger to sorrow and pain that's effectively brought across), with roguishly pointed-tongue quips from an elastic script. Making up the rest of the chicks in her band is a rebelliously intoxicating Drea De Matteo, a sure-footed Lori Petty and a sassy doll-face Shelly Cole. In support are stable turns by Marc Blucas and Ivan Martin. Director Alex Steyermark instills a punching attitude and a genuine feel to his imagery with its all-too easy pace breezing by making the whole thing so engaging, even though it's a well-worn formula. The electrifying soundtrack to boot, pumps out the potent tunes and accordingly matches to the smothering atmosphere. You actually do feel like you're a passenger on the rock and roll ride. Enjoyable, but also confronting music/drama feature.
