Trivia

The concert scenes were shot at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. It had fallen into disrepair and was due for a renovation after filming was completed. This essentially meant that the production team could trash the theater, knowing that it was going to be refurbished after they had gone. See more »

Goofs

When Auden walks straight out into the street, one car barely misses him and two more (blue car and the same orange car that Nada and her band arrive at the theatre in) skid to one side and almost crash. In the next shot, the blue car is still there, but the orange car (which should have been blocked in by the blue car) is gone. See more »

Quotes

King Blues: Hey Cool, don't drink that wine, it struck me blind!
Cool: You ain't blind, you just in the damn closet.

Still funny after all these years
27 January 2000 | by JunkillSee all my reviews

Over the years I have probably viewed this picture about 20 times, and I really don't get tired of it. It is so full of silly things, injokes about the Rock n Roll 'thing' and absolutely outrageous performances that it is always fun to watch and to show to friends. Malcolm McDowell's scene-chewing Jagger-Bowie character of Reggie Wanker is an absolute highlight and look for some amazing personalities in roles in this movie. This is one that never loses its charm.
