Billie Joe Armstrong leads an all-star cast in the candid and heartwarming comedy, Ordinary World. Perry (Armstrong), a former punk rocker, is ten years into his band's "indefinite hiatus" and is struggling with his adjustment to the real world, which includes working in his family's hardware store. When Perry's hotshot attorney wife (Selma Blair) and precocious young daughter forget his 40th birthday, his brother (Chris Messina) takes pity and gives him the money to throw a huge rockstar blowout in a fancy New York hotel. At the party, Perry's punk past clashes hilariously with his grown-up reality as he encounters crazy former bandmates, including best pal Gary (Fred Armisen), and an old-flame-turned-manager (Judy Greer), who offers him a chance to revive his stalled career, all in one outrageous day!

Green Day rocker stars in awkward mid-life dramedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ordinary World (which has also gone by the title Geezer) is a dramedy starring Billie Joe Armstrong from the band Green Day. It follows an aging rocker who has to learn to be responsible. Occasional strong language includes "s--t," "p---y," "a--hole," and more. Characters drink -- ranging from a connoisseur's appreciation of fine whiskey to a hungover man who had too much. A stripper at a party wears skimpy underwear; a "hummer" is referenced. A woman tries to kiss a married man, but he resists. There's some brief destruction at a rock 'n' roll party. Overall, it seems unlikely that the movie will appeal to teens, unless they happen to like Green Day; it's more for the band's older, Gen-X fans, and even then, it's pretty thin.
