Rock the Kasbah

Opportunity rocks when you least expect it.


Rock the Kasbah
A has-been rock manager is dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client, where he discovers Salima Khan, a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s version of ''American Idol.'' He partners with a savvy hooker, a pair of hard-partying war profiteers and a hair-trigger mercenary and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the ''Afghan Star.''

Tomatometer quote iconThe Shareef don't like Rock the Kasbah, and neither will viewers hoping for a film that manages to make effective use of Bill Murray's knack for playing lovably anarchic losers.
