Down home Texas boy Travis W. Redfish falls hard for Lola Bouilliabase, a glitter-spangled groupie determined to lose her virginity to Alice Cooper. Hoping to woo her, Travis signs with a travelling rock band and soon finds himself celebrated as the greatest roadie of all time. Between concerts, Travis uses his wits to make sure that the show goes on, no matter where, no matter what. This does not take long for Travis to realize that, compared to the great rock circus, there's no place like home. However, Lola's date with destiny (and Cooper) to become the greatest groupie of all time looms. Can true love survive rock 'n' roll? Written by

[the Hank & Jerry show, on the TV in the limo during a car chase scene]
People just don't know how to do chase scenes any more.
You're right. Now, in Mack Sennett's chase scenes, people actually got killed.
That's what I mean. Nobody dies for comedy any more.

Slows a bit, but a great movie to listen to while doing something else.
The movie slows down abit after the Austin bar fight scene. But before, the movie is tight and has good dialog. I probably am biased because I am from Texas.
Everything from Roy Orbinson, to the Shiner beer truck to the armadillos, and especially to Muhamed Johnson mispronouncing Redfish's name is great. Other than King of the Hill it is probably the best caricature of Texas that I have seen.
Now as a band cameo movie it isn't that great but Meatloaf in brainlock is worth watching just to hear what he says.
It's a classic in my opinion.
