Movie Info

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr Jekyll whose rock n roll Mr Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher's son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each others' souls. The is the first ever 'doc opera' - a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.

This enjoyable ride should appeal to Alice Cooper's original fans, as well as those who came to him via the performers he influenced.

The story is a familiar one, the vintage clips are great, and if you like Alice Cooper, you'll love it.

Something like a cinematic Wikipedia entry, Super Duper Alice Cooper re-establishes the already familiar story of the rocker, but never stops long enough at any moment to get any real meaning out of it.

Cooper proves a genial, voluble rock idol, even if he does admit to swapping sex and drugs for golf.

This competent but underwhelming portrait of the 70s/80s rock star sticks to the usual wave-graph structure of a thousand other rock bio-docs ...

Audience Reviews for Super Duper Alice Cooper

A nice, safe, genial trip down memory lane. With nods to God for his successful appendectomy and his alcohol abstinence. Good concert footage. Some good stories. Well put together.

This interesting, yet pretty cliched, documentary on one of the most important and influential rock musicians of all time will certainly entertain anyone with an interest in the Coop', but may not inspire many converts. Thankfully, I love Alice Cooper, so it's a win in my book.

I went in expecting another in depth look at a Rock Icon, as Sam Dunn and his team have done in the past. What I got instead was a Biography Channel montage of archive photos and footage with voice overs. No on camera interviews (except for the archive footage) of ANYONE. It lacked the substance of a real documentary, and seemed more like a 127min in memorium segment. Super Duper Alice Cooper failed to really go beyond surface scratches in Alice's career. It failed to look at the laundry list of artists Alice influenced (only touching briefly with Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister). It didn't even really talk much about being inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...and ended with his relaunch in the late 80's. There is SO much more to Alice than this surface scratch, tattered with old horror film footage. The substance of this film is sadly left in the "Bonus" material of the DVD, not in the film where it belongs. Alice is better than this.
