I really liked this funny, feel good, kinda corny, family rock & roll show!
10 September 2004 | by mkclark-1See all my reviews

The credits for the show are running....I find myself grinning to myself and wanting to watch it again!!! Normally, I wouldn't have watched a non-mystery/thriller program, however, I have always liked Gary Cole and wanted to see about this movie/premier, also I was a teen rocker when KISS was first popular, so I had to check it out. I wasn't disappointed at all!!! It is a totally believable premise, well-acted and teaches to follow your heart, work hard and be true to yourself without being really preachy about it-laced with some good rock & roll music! I think it also shows what happens to the family dynamics with lack of truthful communication. It definitely proves the old adage, "To thine own self be true"...without that, ultimately no one can be happy!! It is also a movie that my 14- & 16-year old sons watched with me, talked with me about and enjoyed!!! Rock on!!! LOL!!!! ;)
