The film has its sensibilities in the right place.

Aside from Ms. Gershon's performance (none of the other cast members actually played), there's little to elevate the music -- or the movie -- above cliché.

Played with the right combination of weariness and optimism by Gina Gershon, Jacki will be recognizable to any woman who has ever strapped on a guitar and plugged in, as well as to those of us who have encountered her.

A rock drama that's hung over with inauthenticity.

It's a raw and raucous rock story that, for once, gets the big picture and the small details right.

An ingratiatingly scrappy little movie.

Though it becomes almost laughably melodramatic and wields just about every rock-movie cliche in the book, Gershon's latest holds interest, thanks to her fiercely committed and sexy performance.

Gershon's self-aware shtick is either titillating or irritating, depending on your taste, but the rest of the actors are uniformly excellent.

Ms. Gershon's hot-wired performance infuses Prey for Rock and Roll with a bracing charge of authenticity.

Prey swaggers with attitude but can't help slipping on the suds.

Fearlessly inviting the camera into her deepening wrinkles and hollering corn-nut tunes like an avenging angel, Gershon transcends the script's 'quest for record contract' goofiness.

Nothing drives the film, the dialogue is awful, and dramatic tensions are completely missed.

The musical numbers are the only real drag on this otherwise odd and appealing picture.

While the story line often comes uncomfortably close to melodrama, Prey for Rock and Roll, is an entertaining and sometimes even moving portrait of a veteran band that never quite hits the big time.

Even when the screenplay groans with cliches, the four lead actresses play their parts with truckloads of heart.

Chuck Wilson
L.A. Weekly
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Director Alex Steyermark, making a fluid, textured debut, shapes this long, midfilm sequence like a thriller, and it works, but once it plays out, all that's left is the tension-free question of whether Jacki will quit the band.
