Product Description

Product Description

Comedy starring Rainn Wilson as Robert 'Fish' Fishman, a washed-up heavy metal drummer who hit the big time in the 1980s with rock band Vesuvius, but has languished in obscurity since being unceremoniously kicked out of the band at the height of its fame. Twenty years after having his hopes of stardom so cruelly dashed, Fish unexpectedly gets a second shot at stardom when his nephew's band advertises for a new drummer.

Fans of Rainn Wilson will want to own this - but thereon lies a problem for British buyers.

At present this 'USA ONLY' BLU RAY on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Once again crappy Region Coding rears its ugly head.

Until someone on this side of the pond gives "The Rocker" a Region B release - avoid an expensive mistake...

Don't take it seriously, it's not meant to be as many other reviewers say. And i agree.

Rainn Wilson stars in this comedy as Robert "Fish" Fishman. After being dumped by Vesuvius, a band he formed, in order to get a shot at the top he's not forgotten and holds a bitter grudge against them. Fast forwarding 20 years later, Fish gets a 2nd shot after his nephews band asks for a replacement drummer for his band.

Story-wise, it's a laugh. It's got a great cast, and Rainn Wilson certainly gives it a good shot. Albeit a bit Jack Black in places, but hey it's following on from School of Rock so i guess it has to. I won't say too much, it's a good movie and well worth a watch.

I'm a big fan of Rainn Wilson,loved him in James Gunn's SUPER,here he plays Robert 'Fish' fishman a drummer who missed out on the big time due to being stabbed in the back by his fellow band mates,including the hilarious Will Arnett,after they ditch him to sell out and sell their souls for a record contract meaning they open for Whitesnake on tour,fast forward 20 years and he becomes the unlikley mentor and backbone to a young up and coming band called A.D.D.(Attention deficit disorder) ,with the help of his 'The Naked Drummer' nick name those kids hit the big time,Emma Stone(heavy sigh she's lovely) plays Amelia the post modern cyber punk girl,also look out for Jane Lynch as Robert's Sister and Jason(Horrible Bosses) Sudeikis as the A.D.D.'s manager.
Its a feel good Funny movie great alternative to Glee.

This is not the greatest film ever made,but it is a very amusing and satisfying take on the world of rock n'roll,with an unusual starting point.
Rock band dumps enthusiastic but inconsistent drummer in order to hit it big,and then does make it big.But dumped drummer,betrayed by the disloylaty, never gets over it.He watches the inexorable rise of his ex-band in the ensuing 20 years(who funnily all develop English accents along the way), while his life is a series of dead end experiences,as he feels cheated by the world.
But,just when it seems he can fall no further, by chance he comes across a small trio(geek;nerdy songwriter;abrasive girl) 20 years his junior who have no real ambition, but make good music and need a drummer.The story is really entertaining as 40 year old drummer gets to live life on the road once more,be young, and do it all over again, only this time....anyway, get the dvd to see what happens, you won't be disappointed. Unlike many films about rock, the music is actually good, and the cathartic moment near the end of the film is priceless.

Don't take this film seriously because its not trying to be serious. If you enjoyed Jack Black in School of Rock ... you will love this. Raine Wilson has that same level of infectious enthusiasm in his character Robert Fishman (aka Fish). This is a hugely entertaining story about an ageing rocker who has had a chip on his shoulder for 20 years since he got bombed out of a metal band on the cusp of making it big. His life having spiralled into complete decline and dossing in his sister's loft, he agrees to bail his nephew out of a spot of bother and fill in for the errant drummer in his high school prom band. This re-ignites the spark in Fish and triggers a series of events that lead him face to face at a gig with the band who originally ditched him. Some good performances all round and a few appearances by the gorgeous Christina Applegate playing one of mothers.

Good film, good soundtrack - watch it, you wont regret it.

By A. Miles TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Dec. 2008
Format: DVD
A film written by a computer program under the control of some desperately cynical genius at Disneycorp or similiar, 'Rocker' answers the unasked question of what movie the aging rock fan would like to take his eleven year old daughter to. Basically its an unholy marriage between 'High School Musical' and 'Spinal Tap' - A young, squeaky clean 'rock' band from the suburbs - who've all got 'issues' as you might expect, (mainly to do with how the straights can't cope with their challenging 80s Fleetwood Mac-stylee hairdos) are led to fame by a drummer who has spent 20 years in the wilderness after a Pete Best style expulsion from a band who subsequently become extremely successful. But it all works out in the end, obviously.

It's a terribly cynical movie, expertly blending the Disney style 'You can be whatever you want to be' nonsense with the Spinal Tap stuff, but I must admit I quite enjoyed it, and had a bit of a sniffle at the end of the film when all the band members found true lurv. These people really are evil.
