In this coming-of-age story, four Midwestern high school students embark on an unstoppable quest for concert tickets to the rock band KISS. Over the course of one magical night, each undergoes a harrowing and hilarious experience as their insatiable desire to see their favorite band brings them up against the authorities, their parents and the persistent influence of disco. What begins as the passionate pursuit of a rock 'n' roll fantasy becomes a series of hairpin turns and comic misadventures with one overriding goal: the liberty to pursue one's own dreams.

Common Sense Says
A valentine to sex, drugs, and cutting school.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is something of a valentine to sex, drugs, and rock and roll, to say nothing of lying, cheating, stealing, destroying property, and cutting school. Much of the humor in the film will be lost on people who don't know every KISS lyric and remember the KISS comic with the band's blood mixed into the red ink.
