Movie Summary

Director:
Adam Shankman
Released:
2012
Rating:
PG-13
Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti and Bryan Cranston join songstress sensation Mary J. Blige and Dancing with the Stars' Julianne Hough in this film adaptation of the smash-hit Broadway musical that does with 80s rock anthems what Mamma Mia did with Abba tunes. Directed and choreographed by Hairspray's Adam Shankman, this hard-rocking musical tells the story of small-town girl Sherrie (Hough) and city boy Drew (newcomer Diego Boneta) who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock 'n' roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar amongst other power ballads.
