"SATISFACTION is the best movie in the universe!! The music hella rocks...and I love Billie (Britta Phillips ~JEM~)...she is such an awesome character!! I love the way she sang "Mr. Big Stuff" and "God Bless the Child." This movie is really fun and exciting to watch for people of all ages--especially rock 'n' roll fans!!"
Historic first performances lead to greatness

(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is just an OK film until you realize that Liam Neeson (Michael Collins & Star Wars) and Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) were engaged to be married during the making of this film, Britta Phillips was cartoon vocals for JEM and Justine Bateman was starting fresh from Family Ties. Filmed in Charleston, SC, it is full of great backdrops. The acting is weak at times and the story is predictable. Trini Alvarado gives a believable performance. Still, it is fun to watch how these actors have grown. Lots of fun for a Saturday afternoon viewing and a must for true fans of Julia Roberts."
The rock band dream... 80's girl style

"Satisfaction... is it goofy? Yes. Dated? Definitely 80's. Light/Fluffy? Yes. Bad acting? I bet Julia Roberts would pay to have her scenes erased forever. All of these questions miss the point however!! The appropriate question about this movie should be, "Is it FUN?", and the answer is "Oh yeah!".

Like day time talk shows, comic books, and that old Poison album hiding in the back of your closet, this movie is a guilty pleasure to be enjoyed, but never admitted to! If you are in, or just really like rock bands, this movie is even better (almost inspirational). It's a fun romp with a young (mosly girl) band who land the ultimate gig at a summer beach resort. Music, mayhem, and rock band movie cliches ensue. The humor is funny.... the "drama" is even funnier (the lead guitarist breaks her drug addiction in one day, because the band tells her to!)! Be sure to look for Debbie Harry (Blondie), who turns in the movie's best acting performance in a five minute cameo. The soundtrack is strangely good (retro 80's), and the "band" in the movie actually performs on it! See the movie, and you will have no doubt that Justine Bateman sang her own vocals... which may or may not be a good thing!

If you've ever strummed an electric guitar, or just dreamed of rocking out and hitting the road with your friends, you must see this movie!!"
