Hough, who was good in the "Footloose" remake, is pretty engaging in the lead role -- much more than her male counterpart -- while Cruise nearly steals the movie playing the fading alcohol-hazed rock star.

Rock of Ages probably won't blow too many people's minds, but it still makes us want to sing along much of the time, and the tone is just right, kind without being preachy, humorous without being overly facetious.

Rock of Ages' plot is evidently pretty thin and you're never in doubt that love will conqueror all, but the film's adult themes, diluted as they are compared to the stage production, are wonderfully refreshing.

Rock of Ages might be lowbrow entertainment. But there's nothing to be embarrassed about in enjoying it.

One does not so much watch the movie as they stare on in maddening disbelief.

If you love '80s rock ballads, you will probably really enjoy this movie.

Is this what Mr. Cruise's career has come to? Doesn't he, as well as us, deserve more than this?

It can be nearly impossible to watch at times.

Really, it's like a longer, louder version of Glee or American Idol, but with actors who can't sing rather than singers who can't act. Plus, it rocks you like a hurricane.

"Rock Of Ages" is a soundtrack in search of a story, but it turns its utter disregard for narrative into its strongest ally.

...the two hours watching such a tepid and lip-synched effort is not a pleasant experience.

I know that in the history of cinema there have probably been worse movies. I'm just having a hard time thinking of one right now.

Oscar-worthy costume design by Rita Ryack ... enliven the proceedings that are constantly mired by Tom Cruise's unattractive vanity mugging, off-putting gay jokes and questionable taste in choreography.

Rock of Ages will make you want to raise your arms...and then immediately plunge your fingers into your eyeballs for salvation (you can go back for seconds to rescue your ears).

Feelin' the noise ain't the same as feeling something for the characters, most of whom fail to amp it up in the soul department.

Neither Tom Cruise nor a solid 80s playlist can keep the Rock alive.

Tom, we're really not worthy.

If you grew up with the music of the 1980's and want to relive it, you may enjoy the film. For me, I could easily have skipped both the music and the movie.

Rock of Ages panders to its base without putting in the extra effort to standout as not just a competent musical but a must-see film experience for all audiences.

Tom Cruise is monumentally good in this film. If this film was called Stacee Jaxx it might have been my film of the year.
