Audience Reviews for Half-Cocked

If I would have seen this movie back in the early 90s I would have thought it was one of the best movies ever. The way it is now, I found it rather interesting and fun but not very well aged. None of the bands present ever really lived up to the hype we all thought they were gonna have.
