Cheesy movie, but johnny carrol whomps it live
Mike Russo | seaside, ca USA | 12/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"as far as the movie goes, I give it two stars. however, the UNBELEIVABLE live performance from Johnny Carrol makes this film, especially his two unavailable elsewhere tracks, Maybelle and Sugar Baby. If you dig rockabilly, then you must own this."
The Real Thing!
jmacbops | Dallas, Texas USA | 01/29/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Rock Baby, Rock It" is a cheezy, low budget, 50's teen exploitation movie. Bad acting makes parts hard to watch but, because the budget was so low, the locations are real, the kids are real, the clothes are real, and the music and dancing are real. If you want to see how "the Bop" was REALLY done in 1956, this is a must-have flick for Rockabilly fans! Johnny Carroll's performances ROCK hard!"
Good music, atrocious acting
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 08/27/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Folks, FORGET about the horrible acting, corny dialougue, and stupid story, the MUSIC is the thing here. The obscure, unpolished R&B and Rockabilly acts are fun to watch and listen to. We see Southern R&B in the raw with the Five Stars, Preacher Smith and the Deacons (what a catchy name!), and perhaps the best known of this bunch, Roscoe Gordon with his "Chicken time" (complete with rooster on the piano). On the Rockabilly side, we have the Bluell Bros. (sorta like the Everly Bros. with choreography). The Cell Block 7, with a unique mix of dixieland and rock and roll (a clarinet in a rock and roll band!? No joke, folks). And yes, there's the Elvis/Gene Vincent clone Johnny Carroll, who makes up in energy what he lacks in originality. The great thing about this film is that it preserves Dallas rock and roll acts who would have otherwise lived only in the memories of those who were there. "Wild Style" goes rockabilly."
Authentic, Innocent Rare look at 1957!
Clair Claremont | 12/14/2004

"The dancing and music of this rare and authentic 50s rock/rockabilly movie are the truest view you may ever get to see the real teenage movement. Not tainted by "staged" Hollywood dance coaching--the bop is displayed in its raw form. R&B legend Roscoe Gordon performs with this "Chicken" named Butch in unforgettable performances. Kay Wheeler went on to Hollywood to perform in 'Hot Rod Gang" with Gene Vincent. All in all, a fun viewing of the beginning of rock & roll."
