Critics Consensus: With a predictable and lightweight story, the earnest efforts of the cast are squandered by The Rocker's bland script.

As a movie, it may not rock, but it rolls along nicely enough.

It all looks good and there's a decent cast but nothing really takes off.

Some laughs, but this is no School of Rock.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this comedy -- which stars Rainn Wilson of the popular sitcom The Office and singer Teddy Geiger -- has a tween-targeted marketing campaign and is likely to appeal to kids 10 and up. The jokes tend to be of the slapstick/physical variety, but there are occasional strong words like "s--t" and "bitch," a couple of kisses, and several references to "scoring" with the opposite sex. But as summer comedies go, this one is fairly tame.
