The first time Sherrie and Drew go into the Tower Records store to browse, Skid Row's "I Remember You" can be heard over the store speakers. The time frame for the movie is 1987 and "I Remember You" was not released until 1989. See more »
I'm an old goat who was, in the 80s, called the rock 'n roll Captain where I worked. My son, who just turned 34, heard this music night and day when he grew up. Last night, we saw the movie together and we both enjoyed the hell out of it, even mocking the idea of hip-hop entering a rock venue.
Those looking for realism should recognize that a musical is never an actual representation of the day and most often is a parody, exaggerating and mocking its point. Rock Of Ages was just that, but in a very fun way with good music and musical centered acting.
I recommend this movie because of all its elements: acting, setting, music and and plot line.
