Storyline

1987. Naive Sherrie Christian has just arrived in Hollywood from Tulsa looking to become a rock star. She is just like Drew Boley was when he first arrived in Hollywood, he, now the Hollywood veteran, who works as a bar back at the Bourbon Club, known as the center of the rock scene in town and the place where many of the biggest acts in rock got their big break. The two meet as Drew helps Sherrie with a situation when she first arrives in town. Despite Dennis Dupree, the Bourbon's owner/manager, not liking to hire people like Drew or Sherrie - someone who has musical aspirations - as service staff, Drew is able to convince Dennis and his assistant Lonny to hire Sherrie as a server, Drew and Sherrie who have a blossoming mutual attraction. Dennis and Lonny, who are having financial difficulties, are able to convince rock star Stacee Jaxx, the perpetually stoned front man for the band Arsenal who got his first break performing at the Bourbon, to perform for free at a benefit concert at...

Stacee Jaxx: Five minutes and go!
Constance Sack: Okay Stacee Jaxx back at the Bourbon...
Stacee Jaxx: No, no, no. No. Now go
Constance Sack: Uh, at the Bourbon where it all started, your first album "Stick Meat" gave birth to some of rock's greatest anthems. And now a solo career. Why now?
Stacee Jaxx: Well... I think... I think due to the changing nature of the music industry... The change in cultural trends... And when you think of blah blah blah and blah blah blah, you make sure that you wanna take in blah blah hahaha. Four minutes

People need to stop bashing this movie; it was a lot of fun.
19 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I realize there plenty of cynical people out there that think enjoying a fun musical isn't as cool as bashing it. If you listen to these people, then pretty much everything "sucks" or is an "epic fail". I don't think this movie is being given a fair shot. First off, Tom Cruise gave a great performance and, believe it or not, sings rather well. The plot was slightly predictable but, nevertheless, the movie was fun and energetic. If I had to give any criticism, it would be that Mary J. Blige was underused and Alec Baldwin delivered a couple of bad lines. All in all, it was a very entertaining movie. I realize people like to get on the net and complain and say how stupid everything and everyone is, but don't let that sad, grumpy mind-set keep you from seeing this movie. The song performances alone are worth the price of admission.
