I saw the traveling Broadway show a few months ago and LOVED IT! Now that I have seen the movie, I love it even more! AWESOME MUSIC and great acting all around. Yes, it is a little over-the-top in a few instances but it's just a whole lot of FUN from beginnning to the end! Loved every minute of it! I will definitely see it again!!

Im picky with the musicals I like but this one really worked mostly because of the great music and the humor. I am also picky about humor, not a big fan of comedy, but this movie kept me laughing all the way throughout. Just had to get past the very beginning starting out in song.. I was a bit skeptical when that happened but a few minutes in I actually started to enjoy it and once you get comfortable with the vibe/feel of the movie, its great fun! Plus, seeing tom cruise in this role was epic! haha. Its cheesy, silly, and fun.. if you like musicals occasionally this one really rocks.. but if you are not a fan of musicals at much at all but are just thinking to go cause its a rock movie... this would probably not be your thing.

It was a fun movie with the same old plot. Music was great, but I wouldn't spend the money to see it again at a theatre. Definately not for the kids.

This was one of the best ensemble casts in a movie I've ever seen!! Is there anything Tom Cruise can't do??? He was hysterical as Stacie Jaxx and while he may not win any Grammy's, his singing pipes were quite impressive. Russell Brand won me back as a fan and he and Alec Baldwin stole the show with their rendition of REO Speedwagon's "Can't Fight This Feeling". Julian Hough fell a little flat for me, her singing is just okay and she needs more acting lessons. If you were between 16-25 during the 80's this is YOUR movie - they nailed the repertoire of songs and it sucks you back to those days of awful outfits, bad hair and amazing music!! Worth paying full price!

This movie hi-jacked a revisit of 80's music and instead pedaled soft porn. It was embarrassing to be in the theatre audience and was a disgrace for Katie Holmes and Tom's career. Don't fall for the misleading trailers.
