Rocker, The


USA 2008, 102 minutes
Dir. Peter Cattaneo
Genres: Comedy, Music / Youth


Aroview: High energy comedy about a washed up rock star (THE OFFICE’s Rainn ‘Dwight’ Wilson) who decides to become the new drummer for his nephew's high school band in order to jumpstart his career again.

Appropriating the moves and grooves of SCHOOL OF ROCK (some would call it a shameless rip-off), but with more focus on hair-metal heroics, this does share a similar goofy feel-good charm, even if Wilson doesn’t rock out with the same balls-to-the-wall passion as the irrepressible Jack Black. All in all, an entertaining enough underdog tale that benefits significantly from a catchy-as-hell soundtrack.
