Good storyline, I really enjoyed this movie, and have watched it several times.

Despite the very negative review of this movie from another Swap-A-DVD member I requested this DVD and I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by a fun film that had my wife and I chuckling throughout. Is it Oscar material? No, it's not; but if you're a fan of SNL, Rainn Wilson, or most importantly ROCK-AND-ROLL; I have to say that this film is worth a watch.

This was utter poop. I expected so much more. I guess Rainn Wilson can only play one character well. What he does with Dwight Schrute is amazing, but he was terrible in this. Another comedic actor who I once thought great, Will Arnett, appears in this waste-of-celluloid as well. I had so much hope for Will after Arrested Development, but he has really disappointed me in movies like The Brothers Solomon and Blades of Glory (a film in which I was doubly-disappointed because of Jon Heder's failure to successfully expand his comedic breadth). Arnett seems to only be able to play the spoiled rich playboy well (and in that he has no competition; see him basically reprise his genius role as GOB in Let's Go to Prison, RV, and Monster-in-Law). In short, The Rocker rolled over (and died).

This was actually very funny. Reminded me a bit of "School of Rock." My teenage son loved it )he is into rock music)-- fun movie.

"This is a "Feel Good" comedy. It came on HBO one morning that I happened to be off work and I was bored so I decided to give it a shot. I didn't have any expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that this movie was awesome !!! My boyfriend and I both loved it. Our kind of humor, great cast and story line. It had us laughing out loud. It's great for teens and adults of any age. We're between 30 and 40 (: We both felt great and even found ourselves laughing the next day thinking about scenes from the movie. I'm buying it today so the rest of my family including my son can watch it because I know they will LOVE IT !!!"
