ROCK STAR (2001) GO!, 10.45PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Dim but en­er­getic parable of a heavy-me­tal fan whose ul­ti­mate dream comes true. Mark Wahlberg plays said char­ac­ter (not far off the tone-deaf Dirk Dig­gler char­ac­ter he played in Boo­gie Nights), an all-Amer­i­can mummy’s boy who is cat­a­pulted into star­dom when in­vited to re­place the front­man of his favourite band. Jennifer Anis­ton plays the putupon high school sweet­heart who ob­serves his pa­thetic down­ward spi­ral into sex, drugs and … you get the pic­ture. Rarely ris­ing above the bo­gus level

Hair-rais­ing: Steve Carell in The 40-Year-OldVir­gin.
