Joe's Review of Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages(2012)
Okay. We've all seen the plot hundreds of times, from I Love Lucy, to the Brady Bunch and Three's Company to Footloose and Blues Brothers, but the music and performances in Rock of Ages more than make up for the lame plot. Julianne Hough is great as the fresh-face from Oklahoma trying to make it in L.A. Alec Baldwin kills -- and is laugh-out-loud funny - as do Tom Cruise and Catherine Zeta Jones - she singing Hit Me with Your Best Shot and We're not Gonna Take It. And any movie that ends with Don't Stop Believing is fine by me. Liked it a lot.
