I was very keen to see this film when it was on at the local cinema, and was not disappointed. In fact I liked it so much I could not wait for the Region 2 DVD release, and ordered the Region 1 version immediately, and also the soundtrack album. I have enjoyed watching it several times, you notice something new each time, The atmosphere at the concerts is tremendous, and the acting is too. Mark Wahlberg plays a thoroughly nice guy who is suddenly granted his greatest wish, to front his favourite band Steel Dragon. Jennifer Aniston gives a terrific performance as his very supportive girlfriend and manager. This is a film that has been reviewed in all the DVD magazines,and I think they have criticised it most unfairly. It is a brilliantly produced film , with good acting, great music and it makes you feel good too. Don't take any notice of the DVD magazines, give it a try, it's really worth watching , many times !!!
