Ross, Penny and Crash, young... outsiders from different tribes, embark on a road trip to a huge punk show. Ross, 19, is the love child of Trish and Heroin Bob, who died before Ross was born. During their odyssey, and with the help of a healthy dose of drugs, alcohol and punk music, Ross shreds his darkly Gothic outlook and embraces life. His mother Trish, who raised Ross alone in her steam punk shop, discovers that he is in a crisis. She recruits his 'uncles,' Bob's old SLC gang, to help find him. When all collide at the concert, they are forced to deal with their unresolved relationships with Bob.

Goof on the goof. "John The Mod" now "Johnny Jekyll" never refers to himself as Black Metal or Death Metal ever during the duration of the film, nor does he ever state he's an extremist. He's only described as "Norwegian Black Metal" or "Death Metal" by other characters. See more »

Why This Movie Kicks @55
8 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I found this movie on netflix today. F*ckin loved it like the first one, shown to me by my best friend, the first punk kid i've ever met.

So here's why this movie is awesome to me.

I was the goth/cyberpunk kid who grew up with punks. We went to shows together, we played rancid to heartbreak. We lived this movie. This was our teenage years, driving 100 miles drunk off our asses down the 101 blasting the f*ck out of punk rock. Going to shows in LA, moshing our asses off for every single song that's played, dripped in sweat and someone else's blood.

This movie was great because it reminds me of the first show I ever went to. And the next one. and the next one. Its a reminder that, no matter how old you get, you can wear a tie and work a day job, but you're still a punk no matter what. I wanna say i saw the first one close to 10 years ago.

This is one of those movies I'll be buying (along with the first one), showing my kids if DVD's are still a thing, going "listen here you little sh*ts. Your uncle Adam and I lived this. This here is what love looks like. All that f*ckin energy.

In short, this movie is excellent because its something anyone in the scene who's getting older can relate to. Its excellent because its originality even when its a story that has been told and experienced over and over by almost everybody, and its excellent because it makes a person remember who they are. Its excellent because it reminds you of your teenage heartbreak, the booze and moshing after, and that cute blonde you make eye contact with on the rebound of your first show.

Even with the irony of the title, its a reminder that punk's not dead, because punk is where the love's at. Its one of those movies that make you remember.

Thank you heroine bob.
