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.

Great escapism and nostalgic movie 🎥
22 March 2019 | by stuart-42348See all my reviews

Great movie that takes you back in time and if you lived through that time then its a nostalgic trip. It's rude, loud and crude, but that's the Crue, so if you're offended then why the hell are you watching it. Sure some timelines are a little all over the place and there are a number of key Crue moments that are left out or glossed over. However at 1hr and 48mins it's to be expected. This is a movie that should have ran for a full 3 hours and really dragged you in, but instead it was nearly 2 hours of fast paced fun, debouchous, alcohol (and drug) fueled escapism, which is what the Crue are and were all about for many growing up. Throw in there the tissue moments as well as the self reflection and you've a movie that could easily see a sequel.
