critics consensus

Gershon is a fierce rocker, but the plot is a cliche-filled melodrama. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Jacki (Gina Gershon), who fronts an all-female rock band called Clam Dandy, has been trying to make it in the music business for nearly a decade. After years of disappointment, and with her 40th birthday looming, Jacki is starting to doubt herself. Although she has not told her band mates -- Tracy (Drea de Matteo), Faith (Lori Petty) and Sally (Shelly Cole) -- Jacki is thinking about leaving the group after an upcoming gig if a new record producer does not come through with a contract.

Audience Reviews for Prey for Rock and Roll

    And this is why I don't like "indies". Are the people who write them incapable of happy endings? Or even a positive ending? I'd settle for a hopeful ending. But no. And it's a shame, because a film like this, that details an endless struggle, NEEDS an upbeat ending.

    This is supposed to be some dyke must-see, however, the only thing it's got going for it, is exactly that. The women look super-sexy on stage (Gina Gherson, Drea De Matteo and Lori Petty are not only fit but believably bad-ass) yet the film itself is poorely scripted and awfully lit, and if it didn't have Hedwig's Steven Trask taking care of the music, I think it would have sucked big time. If you want to spend some time feasting your eyes on the leads, then this movie is for you. If, however, you expect something deeper, you will have to feel content with the "I heart Music that's why I am still 40 and play it" over-riding theme, which may in itself not be so bad, yet it hardly gives us any additional insight into life as such.

    The only thing I liked about this movie was that I was able to translate the French t-shirt that said "Je suis libre ce soir"
