A small-town girl and a big-city boy find their fates intersecting on the Sunset Strip, riding a wave of romance through the height of the "hair metal" scene as the off-Broadway musical rocks its way to the big screen courtesy of choreographer-turned-director Adam Shankman (A Walk to Remember, Hairspray). Arriving in Hollywood with stars in her eyes, Sherrie (Julianne Hough) meets Drew (Diego Boneta), and together they plunge headlong into the local rock scene. Meanwhile, as Sherrie struggles to stay afloat in a churning sea of rock 'n' roll excess, she gets swept off her feet by audacious rock star Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise). Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, and Bryan Cranston co-star in a movie featuring music by Journey, Def Leppard, Poison, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Joan Jett, and REO Speedwagon.~Jason Buchanan

If you like Tom Cruise you will be astonished at his performance in this movie! He sings!! yes , he is known to be a hands on person. The man has pipes. The entire movie is awesome, I am surprised he did not win an emmy nomination. What does Hollywood know anyways lolol
Only includes the extended version of the movie. Does not include slipcover or digital copy. Doesn't even have a title card inside the package, which is also an el-cheapo case with cut outs in the plastic of the front under the cover art so they can save .01 per 1000 units, giving a weak, flimsy case that was broken in shipping. Other than the low quality of the release this is a great movie, but this release is just too weak to satisfy collectors.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Great music good fun
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
This movie is a dramady. It tries to be funny and it works some of the time and it tries to be poignant and it works some of the time. The music is amazing for anyone who likes 80's rock songs and all the actors used their own voices for their songs.
