I'm not interested in Rock of Ages at all, mostly because the stage version was a large waste of money, time, and brain cells. This film adaptation from Adam Shankman seems to have only one saving grace: Alec Baldwin looking as shifty and funky as the polar opposite of Jack Donaghy as is humanly possible. Rock of Ages tells the story of a fading but famous bar/club on the Sunset Strip, all to the tune of 80s power ballads.

This looks like a pile of crap. The only laughs are from Alec Baldwin, and the covers are pretty mediocre. I'd stay away, unless you're SO big into hair metal and all of that tommyrot.
