Storyline

Prey For Rock & Roll is the story of Jacki and her all-girl rock and roll band, Clam Dandy, who are trying to make it in the LA club scene of the late 1980s. After ten years of being ignored by record producers, Jacki and the band find hope in one producer who promises to see them play and consider them for a contract. Jacki resolves to play this one last gig and then throw in the towel if she does not find success. Personal tragedies, however, threaten to rip the band apart, rocking the foundation of friendship and trust the women have built together. Ultimately, the band must find its strength in the music that is their passion and the thread that holds them together, inspiring them to prevail. Written by Cheri Lovedog

Goofs

Jacki gives Faith a tattoo. Faith shows the tattoo to Sally and says, "Jacki just did it today." The Tattoo showed no signs of being new at all. No redness, no swelling, no irritation and no Vaseline covering it. It looked as if it had been done months ago. See more »

This is the Real Thing
6 June 2004 | by ajb-6See all my reviews

I just want to respond to some of the comments I've read here. First of all, this movie absolutely GETS IT RIGHT. Yes, rock musicians do really talk like that. I know this because I am one and so are all of my friends. Yes, most of the rock musicians I know really dress like that and really do all that drinking & drugging. And about the music...if the music was good, there'd be no movie, get it? They'd have gotten signed long ago so there'd be no hard times, no conflict. They even said during the movie that she couldn't sing! You want bad acting & great music, go watch Purple Rain. You want to watch a movie about what the rock life is really like, watch Prey For Rock and Roll.
