I absolutely loved it. so many great songs from the time, and had some funny moments. and Tom Cruise an excellent singer in this. if you have not seen it don't see it if you don't love rock lots of rock and lots of fun in this amazing movie.
loved it was a fun trip back to the future of 1987 when i was 24. loved the music the actors and was more funny than most comedy;s was sceptical at first but surprised at the rocknroll ride i was taken on most fun i had at a movie and saw on vid only
There are good cheesy movies and bad ones, and this is bad! Boring! Very predictable, no imagination despite the costumes and sets. Bridesmaids was the last great cheesy Hollywood movie I saw.
I loved this movie, I can see how so many people wouldnt like it. I'm guessing they are the same people that didn't like the glam rock of the 80's, but to me, I knew all the words to all the songs. This is the stuff I grew up on, These are the songs that got me into music. The acters had a lot of fun making this movie and it shows. It was made to be fun and it is. This is the 80's I grew up in. If you do not like 80's glam rock DO NOT watch this, but if you do, it's an outragous walk down memory lane.
I thought it was better than I thought it would be lots of laughs, great movie.
singing was ok but it is waaaaay too cheesy. i love musicals but there is a fine line and they crossed it between class and cheesiness. do not want to see it again, hard to swallow.
this was, by far, the worst movie i saw in 2012.
you know it was actually really good surprised me i didnt think i would like it as much as i did. loved that girl from foot loose she did a great job in the movie.
fun movie with great music we all know. tom cruise gives a attention demading performance you will not regret seeing. rocking good movie!
horribe. super predicatable. it's your typical formula followed musical. very cheesy right from the beginning. sherrie's on a train ( the start of an adventure!), looks at her albums (oh, music, you're my everything!),looks at a photo (sentimental moment). then random singing starts and i'm like "this is weird". everything is so cheesy and forced. right from the first scene i could tell i would hate it. not to mention i'm kind of sick of julianne playing the same character over and over again. it thought tom cruise's acting fit his character a t first, but then towards the end it just didn't seem natural anymore.
i love this movie i saw it 7 times
good music but story only average
rockin' good flick! :)
what a waste of a movie!
good singing and dancing. why did this mnot do beteer at the box office?
the music was amazing and it was actually a better movie than i thought it would be.
it's no wonder this movie was wisked away from theatres so fast...it was terrible thanks mainly because of mr cruise.....yeck!
tom's done as far as i'm concerned and this movie proves it.
tom is as washed up as his character he plays....will never go another one of his movies.
terrible, terrible, terrible acting on tom's part...very unbelievable. i think he's a has been and should just stop trying to act. alec & russell were terrific and so was the music! if i could give it no stars i would because of tom's inability to act.
loved this movie; going back to see it for the third time; lots of fun and great music; all the actors did a great job; so entertaining
after seeing the play in toronto some years back i was really looking forward to the movie. the trailers looked good but the show was terrible like west side story to classic rock its a musical alec baldwin should be embarrassed. tom cruse did sing quite well but the whole story is lost in the constant singing of lines i was disappointed
a fun, feel-good movie! tom cruise did an amazing job as the eccentric stacee jaxx.
i loved this movie!! russel brand and alec baldwin was a shocker lol. the pipes these actors and actress are amazing. i cant wait till it comes out on video.
i think this movie so didn't get enough credit! yes, it's totally over the top but so was the 80's! i had so much fun seeing this! wanted to see it again but it's disappeared from all the theatres :(
what a pantload this movie is! and as for hough, it's pretty obvious how she got where she is in the biz...
just had a great time with this movie. julianne hough is a star!!!
it was an okay movie, somewhat like saturday night fever, but a rock'n'roll version with a 'go to la/hollywood' plot. i don't normally get much into head bangin' screamin' rock (as singing) so those songs were okay (some familiar), some of the softer rock songs were nicer. a bit weird to hear a slight country sound to the girl singer. i'm unfamiliar with the younger actor/singers. shows a side of 'wild rock parties' i've never gotten into, nor the pole-dance clubs. i didn't actually expected to be a 'musical'... until the bus driver started singing... hahahaha... ok, here it comes... [for me, the dubbing was fine]
this movie is a piece of crap ,not worth renting.i only gave it a star because you have to so you can make a comment.one word garbage
this is an awesome movie. for someone that grew up in the 80's it was great music. julianee hough really stole the show in this movie. her singing is awesome as well. run out and see this movie right now.
this movie stinks. bad acting, bad, overdubbed voices and it's a travesty how they rearranged so many great songs. i don't understand the accolades for tom cruise either. if you saw him play the drunk scene in a few good men you have seen what he does for this entire film. if you liked hairspray you will like this film, and you have poor taste.
awful, complete waste of time
Refreshing to see Tom cruise in a role like this. He blew me away. He's such a diverse actor. Fantastic job Tom !
omg!!! you all have to see this movie if you haven't already. i love this just as much as i loved hairspray & grease. so many great songs! p.s if you don't like musicals than don't see them
could have done without all the musical interludes; after awhile they were just annoying and really bogged down the story.
Great Movie brought me back in time I loved all of the songs!! The actors and actress do a great job. j
i normally do not go to musicals but did want to see this movie, after having seen the trailer. who knew so many actors and actresses could sing this well? tom cruise was absolutely fantastic in the role of the older rocker and is singing is amazing! i was so surprised to see him in a role that is totally different from his "usual" ones. i would go see this movie again just to hear him sing.
amazing movie! im going to see it with some other friends again! great soundtrack and costumes! tom cruise was amazing!
glitter was sooo much better than this.
the music was awesome and much funnier than i expected!!
i loved this movie! tom cruise is amazing as well as all the other actors! very entertaining! don't go by the critics, just go see it for yourself!!
this movie was good go see this movie .
were the 80's really this square?!?!
i felt like i'd been to the "theatre" on broadway. rude in a few places but entertaining. some songs i'll never look at the same way again for sure.
fantastic movie. unforgetable music and great acting. film created for the real roc lovers. tom cruise was smashing. this movie is perfect summer entartaining. i am going again to enjoy it.
the soundtrack sucked, and the film looked like it was shot for $1.95. one of the worst films of this or any other year.
just great. made for those 30 to 45 years who can actually appreciate the clothing, hair styles and music. just a good time out. rock on!!
this movie was a smile a minute. omg did it bring back memories. i rocked malin's character's hair for a decade!! if for noother reason than to giggle as you trip down memory lane go and see this movie
this movie is supposed to be a tribute to 80's rock and yet the score is typical broadway musical(nothing resembling rock).only good thing was tom cruise's performance and that's just not enough to save this movie.
excellent movie and tom cruise was amazing!!!!
