Storyline

When his unmarried mother dies, custody of 13-year-old Job is assumed by his alleged father, Chris, whom he has never seen. Job is an enthusiastic cadet at a military academy, and Chris turns out to be a top-grossing rock star who removes Job from his beloved school to keep him company on tour. Getting acquainted is fraught with culture shock for both father and son. Written by Paul Emmons <pemmons@wcupa.edu>

Great Family Movie
10 September 2004 | by kezzmattySee all my reviews

I loved the movie as a child and was very surprised to see that Mick Jagger had penned it - and although the story is not overly original, I am still impressed that he made the effort and had some success. I think that it would be a great film to sit down with my wife and my son to watch sometime.

The music is catchy and although it is a little outdated - it should still be appreciated by the youth of today with its simple rock beat and melodic choruses. I'll give it a go with my boy and see what he thinks! However, I thought he'd love 'Grease' but I caught him fast-forwarding through some of the slower songs in that - I figure that it is not as intense and as action-packed as 'The Rings' and 'Star Wars' Epochs that he enjoys so much.
