“The Rocker” is Robert “Fish” Fishman, the drummer for an eighties hair band. He’s living the rock n’ roll dream… until he is kicked out of the group. Twenty years later, the desperate rocker joins his nephew’s band, “A.D.D.,” finally reclaiming the rock-god throne he’s always thought he deserved — while taking his much younger bandmates along for the ride of their lives.
There is a lot of physical comedy in this film and some of it works. Some of it doesn’t. But despite a few laughs generated from a former rock star drummer joining his nephew’s band, this movie is definitely not a family film. It has strong language, a ton of sexual innuendos, some nudity, and disrespectful attitudes from The Rocker in particular. There is also continual drinking throughout. The Rocker doesn’t much care for society although he is part of it. I didn’t much care for this film.
