Ok, a little corny but I did laugh!! The music was well done. The acting was fine. The chemistry of the "stars" comical. I am glad I saw it on the Big Screen!

Very boring film

There is something very wrong about a film when you come out of it saying "the highlight of this film was Tom Cruise". He brought the only real emotion to the film, & it was as a drugged-out whacko. To begin, the leads were dead boring. Julianne Hough was about as interesting as a piece of soggy Wonderbread. What's-his-name who played the male lead looked 16 & had less depth than the layer a crayon leaves on a piece of paper. Alec Baldwin & Russell Brand did bring some much needed comedy to the movie, but their scenes were disjointed & out of place with the story. Catherine Zeta-Jones, usually a favorite for me, moved like she was 90 years old. Mary J Blige's voice was wonderful, but it seemed her character's only reason was to provide token diversity. Her story, like the Baldwin/Brand story, was out of place and missing some key exposition. The music was blander than the storytelling. The originals are so much better.

The opening scene with Julianne Hough's Sherrie Christian riding a bus to collect her dreams in Hollywood has her springing into song - "Sister Christian," of all things (duh play on words) and the whole bus joining her in a very loud chorus, which, I swear to God, seemed to continue for 20 minutes. I once again realized why I don't care for musicals in film. The characters and plot somehow had me connecting it in a deja vu kind of way to "Footloose," while Julianne Hough made me flash back to the awful "Burlesque." The plot was thin, the lines- when there were some- were weak, and the characters unbelievable and/or unimpressive in any way, save Tom Cruise, as "Stacee Jaxx." Let me state that I am not historically any fan of Tom Cruise, though arguably, I liked him in both "Knight and Day, " and recently, "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol." The man continues to be in amazing shape....but I digress. He can also sing! Fabulous job on "Wanted Dead or Alive." Cruise:4 stars Movie:1.

If you love the 89's music, this is a must see! It reminded me a little bit of Mixtape. There is no earth shattering plot line - it's all about the music. It's really silly and quite entertaining.

I loved every minute of Rock of Ages! I loved all of the songs, and every actor gave a great performance...I ordered the soundtrack as soon as I got home, despite the fact that I already have the Broadway recording! I don't remember the last time I had this much fun at the movies...I want to see it again!
