The Rocker 2008


description written by member Zara:

The Rocker tells the story of a failed drummer who is given a second chance at fame. Robert "Fish" Fishman is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius, who is living the rock n' roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band. Twenty years after his rock star fantasies are destroyed, just when Fish has finally given up all hope, he hears that his nephew's high school rock band A.D.D. is looking for a new drummer. They reluctantly make him the newest member of the band, giving him a chance to reclaim the rock God throne he's always thought he deserved, and taking the young band along for the ride of their lives.

The Rocker Movie Review by Zara (5/3/2009)

For the majority of the first part of this movie, there's a good amount of physical humour which is actually pulled off well and very humourously by Rainn Wilson. The goofy looking kid that they cast as his nephew and the pinch hitting on the sides by Jane Lynch and Christina Applegate also occur, but for the most part, it...

The Rocker Movie Review by Jarrod (8/24/2008)

'The Rocker' finds Office veteran Rainn Wilson channeling Jack Black and Will Ferrell, in a comeback story with elements of parody; it does contain its share of funny moments, even if there is hardly anything here that could be called fresh or original. Robert Fishman (Wilson) was once in a metal band called Vesuvius,...
