Rock Star

Rock Star By day Chris Cole repairs photocopiers. By night he takes the stage as frontman for a tribute band emulating Steel Dragon, the world's hottest heavy-metal band. Then, suddenly, opportunity rocks: Chris is tapped to become Steel Dragons's new lead singer. Just like that, he and his manager/girlfriend Emily plunge into a world crazier than either imagined.

Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston headline and Stephen Herek (Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure) directs this knowing, chord-crunching, hair-whipping look at 80's arena rock and the price of fame. From its lead performances to its wall-to-wall sonic carpet to its casting of bonafide rockers in key supporting roles to capturing of the era's leather-clad styles and over-amped attitude, Rock Star gets it right. Long may it shine.
