This weekend, “Rock of Ages” hits the big screen. The musical tells the story of a boy and girl trying to make it big in Hollywood. So, who better to review a film about ’80s hair-metal music than Poison frontman Bret Michaels?
In a video for NextMovie, Michaels gave the film nothing but praise:
“I’m going to have to give this an 11. We’re out of the park,” said the singer, in a nod to the classic amp scene from rock-umentary “This is Spinal Tap.”
Michaels went on to compliment “the beautiful” Julianne Hough (who plays Sherrie Christian), the cast’s chemistry and the movie’s soundtrack (which features several Poison songs, including “Nothing But a Good Time” and “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”). Bret was also very excited about the “great bands of the ’80s genre that are still out there — Def Leppard, Poison, Journey — selling out arenas. The music has withstood the test of time.”
And if Michaels had to give a rose or a thorn to Tom Cruise, for his portrayal of rock-star, Stacee Jaxx, what would it be?
“He would get a bouquet of roses. He nailed it.”
See if Bret Michaels has a second career as a movie reviewer by checking out “Rock of Ages,” in theaters this Friday.
