"Here we have the king (adam), and queen (debby), the grandparents of the new waves, in a 2 thumbs up cult movie; very entertaining, and has bits and pieces of adam ants original materials turned into characters.... a "got to have it', for all Rocky Horror lovers, and Ants. and Blondie fans.... Stand and Delivered, by both ADAM ANT with DEBORAH HARRY, one way or another... chew the rose and spit it out!!!"
Tee hee!

"Yes, I do love me some Adam Ant. Which is why I bought this movie in the first place. I wanted to see Blondie as well. Adam is BY FAR the best actor in this movie. But its ok that the acting [is not good]. It's just WEIRD. But very funny in some parts. I really like the guy who plays "Spazz-O". I was entertained through the whole thing and of course...Adam is in the entire movie....which for me or any other Ant fan (which you probably are for even reading the reviews of this movie) is a huge plus. I am glad I bought it. And as you Ant fans know, getting your hot little hands on a new copy of an Adam Ant movie is near impossible, so snap it up while you can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"I bought this movie becuase I love anything Adam Ant is in. I would only recommend this movie to someone in the same catagory as the acting in this one stinks. Debbie Harry is an excellent example of musicians who should not cross over into acting with her aweful portrayal of a music mogul trying to buy into the latest music craze. For anyone who just loves to watch Adam Ant act or see what a bad movie looks like, this is the one for you."

"Admittedly, you'd have to be either a huge fan of either Debbie Harry (like me:) or Adam Ant to even contemplate renting this movie, let alone buying it, but if you ARE said biased fan, you're gonna love this! Drop Dead Rock is a bizarre tale of a downright awful band who can't get started in the music industry. So, they kidnap a British rock star (as you do!), who they can force to listen to their music and get them fixed up with a record contract. Of course the kidnapping all goes wrong and leads to all kinds of crazy chaos. Adam Ant is very amusing as a band-manager-type, and Deborah Harry is absolutely fabulous as the sharp, sexy, mean head of a record company who is also attending Alcoholics Anonymous sessions...DDR is very colourful, very loud and very camp. It's funny, stupid and a tad, er, gruesome in parts. Watch it for Adam Ant being evil, and Debbie Harry showing her stockings and suspenders. Just don't take it seriously!! :)"
