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.

Critics Consensus: Its exuberant silliness is almost enough to make up for its utter inconsequentiality, but Rock of Ages is ultimately too bland and overlong to justify its trip to the big screen.

Musical has more glam than grit, except for drinking.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Rock of Ages is based on a Broadway musical comedy about rock 'n' roll, of which there is plenty (particularly heavy-metal hits from the '80s). There's also a lot of drinking, especially by an often-wasted star whose favorite drink is scotch, straight from the bottle, but no drugs or smoking. Words like "s--t" and "ass" are used (plus one "f--k"), and there are many suggestive scenes (think writhing, willing groupies and strip clubs) -- though there's no graphic nudity, and the sex scenes are more choreographed dance than erotica. The star-studded cast includes Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Russell Brand.
