A hackneyed version of a superstar smitten by true love.

Audience Reviews for Hard to Hold


Just saw it on a cable channel this afternoon. Thank goodness for the credits so I could see the best moments that I missed due to snoozing.

This romantic comedy stars rock star Rick Springfield, as a rock star! Not only that, it's funny, cute, and charming, I really liked this movie.

This movie has rekindled my love for Rick Springfield! He is so cute and funny in this movie. It's really just another predictable, silly, formulaic romantic comedy, but I didn't mind because Rick was so great, and the rest of the cast was good too. I really enjoyed this movie, and if you like Rick, you'll like this movie too. A lot of great Rick Springfield songs in this movie too.
