User Reviews

Totally Unsatisfying.
14 August 2002 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

Michael J. Fox's successful jump from "Family Ties" to the big screen made Justine Bateman a marketable commodity as well in this small and really totally unimpressive quick-flick. Bateman is the head of a small rock band that gets a gig in a bar in California and naturally Bateman falls in love with a then-unknown Liam Neeson. The typical things occur as this is little more than another long music video from the 1980s. Julia Roberts is also along for the ride as one of the girls in Bateman's band. Watching Neeson and Roberts in this mess is really interesting, but they were not stars yet and in the end "Satisfaction" cannot boost past the dreaded bomb status. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
