Trivia

Of the four leads that portray the all American band, Motley Crue, Colson Baker aka Machine Gun Kelly who plays Tommie Lee is the only actor who is actually American in real life. Douglas Booth (Nikki Six) is from England, Iwan Rheon (Mick Mars) is from Wales, and Daniel Webber (Vince Neil) is from Australia. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scenes you see Nikki (then Frankie) dancing around his room with a six string guitar. According to the book, The Dirt, Nikki had never owned a guitar before auditioning for his first band in high school. This lead to him to stealing a bass guitar (because he didn't know the difference between the two types of guitars) and bringing to the audition for lead guitarist. He had to learn how to play the instrument (that he'd play for the rest of his career) because of this mistake. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Nikki Sixx: [narrating] The 1980s, the worst fucking decade in human history. Preppies and keyboards, stupid haircuts, Jazzercise, and "Just Say No". It all fucking sucked! So what do you do when you're born in the wrong time? You make it yours. And that's what we did to the Sunset Strip.

Inside Motley Crue
22 March 2019 | by erin_osullivanSee all my reviews

I watched this last night with my husband. I don't know much about Motley Crue having grown up a child of the 90s, but I certainly want to read The Dirt now I've seen the film. It's a little bit cheesy in some scenes, but overall is an enjoyable film detailing the debaucherous and crazy antics of the band. Worth a watch!
