Storyline

Based on Mötley Crüe's 2001 best-selling autobiography, THE DIRT is an unflinching story about sex, drugs, rock 'n roll, fame, and the high price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage, and what it meant to become the world's most notorious rock band.

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. The day of his audition, he took an empty guitar case to a music store and stole a guitar. When he got to the band audition to try out as their bassist, they noticed he had a regular six string guitar. When they questioned Nikki about it, he told them, "I know. I play bass on guitar."

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.
