The Rocker is an American comedy film made in 2008 and starring Rainn Wilson, Christina Applegate, Josh Gad, Emma Stone and Teddy Geiger. Back in the 80's there was a glam rock band called Vesuvius. At it's helm was Robert "Fish" Fishman (Wilson). That is until a music manager tells the other band members to drop him so they can sign a contract. Being left behind, Fish swears vengeance, saying he'll be in a band someday thats much more famous than Vesuvius. Now twenty-some years later Fish struggles at constant unemployment while Vesuvius has become wildly successful. After hearing his teenage nephew Matt (Gad) is in a band that needs a drummer he forces himself into the new young band. Facing a prom performing embarrassment, constant ridicule and overnight success thanks to a sleazy manager and a viral video, the band is on a roller coaster that leads to their opening for Vesuvius of all bands! Can Fish pull it together, or will he once again be left behind?moreless
