Goofs

The story is set in 1987 but the characters sing songs written after that year, including Warrant's 'Heaven' (1988), Extreme's 'More Than Words' (1990), Poison's 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn' (1988), and Skid Row's 'I Remember You' (1989). Within the movie's "musical" illusion of reality, these songs are meant to be representative of the mid-1980s-through-early-1990s era as a whole, since this film is a nostalgic fantasy representation of the era rather than a historically accurate recreation of a specific year. Keep in mind also that an important plot element is the notion that the song "Don't Stop Believin'" is written in 1987 by the fictitious Drew Boley, but in real life was written by Journey in 1981, and was already a well known song by 1987.

If you like the 80's big-hair era, ignore the negative reviews!
19 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I were both in high school during the 1980's and we loved this movie. So the story isn't Academy Award material, but it was the most fun we have had at the movies in a while. The 80's music is not the original work, but still performed well and placed great in the movie. Tom Cruise is a hoot in his role (think Axl Rose) and the others weren't bad either. Small cameos by some 80's rock stars. I have seem some references to its similarity to Grease and its portrayal of the 1950's. I think that is a pretty good comparison. Again, if you are not a fan of the 80's, you probably won't like this too much. But, if you like the 80's and its music, you will probably enjoy this movie and leave with a smile.
