Trivia

When the name of Dennis' rock band was decided (Sons of Rock), production searched the Internet to check if a band with that name already existed. Surprisingly, that search took them to Spanish rock/RnB/soul band Sons of Rock, founded and leaded by Alba Cespedes. They contacted Alba to ask permission to name the band in the movie Sons of Rock and offered to include one of her songs in the soundtrack. If you listen closely to Dennis' radio in his workshop, you will listen to the solo in Sons of Rock's song 'My Name is Lucille', from their self-titled album. The song is included in the movie credits. See more »

Really enjoyed this heartwarming film about yearning for something better
26 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When this film was recommended to me, I thought it was going to be a slapstick-laden comedy and I was reluctant to start watching it. The first few minutes seem to confirm my worries, but the film shifted under me and became a heartwarming story about Clyde's reassessment of his life and his attempt to make something better of himself.

There's a, well, not so much anti-establishment, but more a tone of not having to accept lousy jobs at lousy wages and lousy working conditions and that sometimes we have to be strong enough and brave enough to branch out into the unknown, cast ourselves free from our safety net of stagnation and try something new.

At a point when Clyde's only friendship seems to be coming to an end, there's a definite slant towards showing us that every ending can also be considered a new beginning, and sometimes it's only when life is dark that we can see the light leading us to new things and new experiences.

I was worried that the ending might throw me for a loop, but the ending was really good and I enjoyed the film greatly.

I would watch this again.
