I don't know about the rest of you surfers, but I think Rainn Wilson is one of the funniest men on T.V. right now, and I am excited to see him in more leading roles on the big screen. This movie will probably follow in the footsteps of Dewey Cox and Hot Rod, in that it will be so stupid, it will be hilarious. For those of you who don't know, here is the synopsis that I found on IMDB:
"The Rocker tells the story of a failed drummer who is given a second chance at fame. Robert "Fish" Fishman is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius, who is living the rock n' roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band. Twenty years after his rock star fantasies are destroyed, just when Fish has finally given up all hope, he hears that his nephew's high school rock band A.D.D. is looking for a new drummer. They reluctantly make him the newest member of the band, giving him a chance to reclaim the rock God throne he's always thought he deserved, and taking the young band along for the ride of their lives."
I think we all know someone who is always looking for the opportunity to regain their past status. I think I will enjoy this movie because I like it when the underdog gets his chance. I'm not saying this movie is going to be an academy award winner, or change people's lives, but I do think it'll be entertaining. If you are interested in catching a peek at "The Rocker", click on the poster above, and it will take you to the trailer. As always, let me know what you think.
