FRI­DAY

ROCK STAR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

12.15AM, NINE ★★

Al­though Rock­Star par­tially de­liv­ers on its prom­ise of a light-hearted look at heavy metal’s mid-’80s hey­day, it is really your clas­sic rags-toriches tale of a loser who lucks it into the big time. The hu­mour does lack the smarts of SpinalTap, but what Rock­Star loses in the orig­i­nal­ity stakes, it al­most makes up for with a goofy charm all its own.
