"'Hi....I'm Sebastian Bach. Taco Bell cut my hours..can I be in your movie?'"
Yeah, so Sebastian Bach isn't in this movie...he was probably working a shift at White Castle and couldn't make the shoot, or he would've been on set. If you've ever wondered what happened to all the hair metal guys that you used to think rocked so hard when you were 13 and masturbating to 'Small Wonder' reruns please, rent 'Rock Star'.Honestly, this movie would've been alot more interesting to me if it had been a semi-autobiographical work about Mark Wahlberg's Marky Mark days.....the Marky Mark gag makes an appearance or two, but I couldn't help but think that would've been more interesting than this weak pinterplay about not selling out.
I mean, I would've MUCH rather seen Wahlberg square off with Vanilla Ice in a breakdancing contest or setting hotel fires with his older New Kid's frontman brother than the one-time jokes present in this flick. Sure, I'm as thrilled as the next guy that John Bonham's offspring is getting work and that infamous rockstar antics are getting a very subdued send-up, but surely there's paint drying somewhere or a Garrison Keiller program on.Yes, I'm drunker than a punkrocker at a Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery tour, but this movie just isn't worth your time...hard to believe the same director made Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, which is an Academy nominee compared to this. Hit fast forward and stop whenever Jennifer Aniston appears on screen....that's about all the advice I can offer.
