Goofs

At the record store, one of the walls has a spread of Iron Maiden's 1986 album "Somewhere in Time" on it. The artwork featured is the artwork from the 1998 CD remaster; the artwork that the album had until then had the band's name and album title displayed much smaller and to the top left corner.

Quotes

Sherrie Christian: He's better than Concrete Balls.
Lonny: That's a good point, Concrete Balls are very heavy.

It's fun Summer Fare, Enjoy !
19 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

I saw the Broadway play with the original cast and had a great time. The movie didn't disappoint me either. A cheesy love story tied together with great music from the hair band 80's was on purpose. Re-living that era, priceless. Go. Enjoy. This will definitely become a cult favorite in future years, bless 'em for preserving some amazing rock history. Ignore the professional critics, go have fun!

This is my first review attempt on IMDb, with hopes this helps those who are turned off by People, EW, local and national news professional (aka, paid) reviewers. I'm a pop culture junkie and a grandma, I don't always agree with the pros. I'm sorry Rock of Ages had a poor box office start out of the gate, but hopefully my little review piece will bring some fun to those clinging to their entertainment dollars. Great party experience!
