HIT SO HARD follows the journey of Patty Schemel, the openly gay drummer of Courtney Love's seminal rock band 'Hole.' As a young girl who always knew she was 'different' from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of 'Rolling Stone.' But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected 'slacker' generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side. Written by

You know I could be going out with Angelina Jolie but if I'm not clean and sober and I'm with Angelina Jolie and there's a guy over there with a crack pipe, I'm be haning out with the bum with the crack pipe... and the shopping cart.

A star-f**king movie about Courtney and Kurt disguised as a movie about Hole's lesbian drummer. I don't think the people who made this movie are actually very interested in Patty. I suspect they were very interested in Patty's old video. There's a good movie about Patty's life and a good movie about women drummers out there but this isn't it.
Second hope--that it would have lots of good music. I love Hole, but there are only snippets of Hole songs where the lyrics can belabor whatever point the movie's making.
If you're interested in video of Courtney and Kurt, go for it. Otherwise, it's icky watching a messed-up drummer with an interesting past get used.
