Quotes

[first lines]
Rock Slyde: My name is Rock Slyde, and I blame my mother. With a name like that I was destined for one of two careers. That's detective work, or porn. After starring in two art films, I decided the glamor life of a porn star wasn't for me. Besides, I was hung like a hamster.

Film review from AFI Dallas screener of "Rock Slyde"
3 April 2009 | by rainyflynnSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see this film at the 2009 AFI Dallas Int'l Film Festival as press for a new show to launch exclusively on demand in the Dallas market for Time Warner Cable called "Indie Scene".

I laughed my head off and so did the rest of the audience at both sold out screenings of this film, where people were turned away due to seating shortages. With all the laughing; some follow up lines were missed so the movie was even funnier at the second screening. This is a lighthearted poke fun at film movie that I really appreciated because of the absents of sex, drugs and violence. Will this film win an Oscar, no, they don't recognize comedies anyway but you will be quoting lines from the film with your friends. So with that being said if your looking to have a good time watching an Indie film, check out "Rock Slyde".
