With rock and roll running through his veins, a failed over-the-hill drummer gets a second chance at fame with a new band twenty years after getting booted out of his now famous former band.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
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.

Common Sense Says
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.
