Goofs

When Mötley Crüe play their first gig at the Forum in Inglewood, CA, the exterior color of the arena (behind the white columns) is painted blue. The Fabulous Forum was actually painted "California sunset red" at that time and was repainted blue only after Wayne Gretzky was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in the late 80's to early 90's. Furthermore, the band did not perform at the Forum until 1985. 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.

Exceeds Expectations
23 March 2019 | by gjrburbchicSee all my reviews

I went into this with extremely low expectations and was more than pleasantly surprised. The casting is near perfect. Machine Gun Kelly knocked it out of the park as Tommy Lee. Being a huge Crue fan in the 80's none of the material in this film is new to me and yes I was very aware of inconsistencies that were presumably done for theatrical and story telling purposes. None of that bothers me. To me, this is the right kind of awesomely cheesy. I'm impressed with the actors in this film. They inhabited the personas of Vince, Mick, Nikki, and Tommy really well. And I think that was the idea. Lastly, I've always resonated most with Nikki and seeing his childhood trauma depicted on the big screen was deeply moving. It's truly a miracle that guy is alive and well.
