Did You Know?


This documentary about the all girl rock band The Runaways, has no original Runaways music. The only music you hear is by other artists or you hear the band doing cover songs. That's because Joan Jett refused to take part in the production and refused to grant permission for the music to be used. See more »


Mrs. West: [Sandy West's Mom] As I look back and Sandy will agree with me, I should have tied her to the bed and said, "You can't do this." But you can't really take away your children's dreams.

outstanding insight into The Runaways
19 August 2005 | by hlea42See all my reviews

Very raw and revealing insight into a young band that was being abuse behind close doors. I would have loved to hear what Joan had to say, giving her take on the band to make this documentary feel complete and finally see all band mates on some level of togetherness but very surprise that everyone involved had compliments for her. Jackie seem to be the most revealing and comfortable talking about the band. There is obviously rivalry and coldest between Cherie and Lita but it sounds like they have gotten pass it with years passing or else they wouldn't have done this documentary. However, out of all the interviews the most heartbreaking and personal depth shown was Sandy's account, especially towards the end bringing me to tears, it was very touching emotionally, making her account so real that it's hard to forget the damage that was done. Also, it's sad that this band isn't recognized for it's influence in music, paving the way for female rock bands, which Vicki has done an excellent job making this of importance!
