  1. While it's possible to have a great time with the movie without having any interest in Kiss, it should be noted that the band does make an appearance.

    Unlike the many youth movies that can't overcome their makers' hindsight, this one may actually put you in an adolescent frame of mind.

    A very sweet, very funny coming-of-age story, featuring Kiss as the Great White Whale of adolescence.
  4. Well, it could have been good. But this goofy homage to Kiss fans gets dry mouth pretty fast.

    If you love KISS, you'll probably see this movie anyway. If you don't, there's no point.
  6. It's an utterly fake nostalgia piece -- stupid and pandering, a bad-boy teen flick that plays less like a loving look at the late '70s than a terrible movie from the late '70s.
  7. A turgid, unfunny, out-of-time rockspolitation movie.

    I'm not completely sure whether movie critics have high standards or just have no sense of humor. This movie was a charming ballad of the hair band listening, rebelling, coming-of-age teenager who's just trying live life to the fullest. This movie will likely touch the hearts of those who remembered what it was like growing up listening to rock and roll and wanting to live the rock star life and it will likely touch the hearts of future generations who will try to do the same. Don't you remember wanting to go to a concert that your parents didn't want you to?! In this movie, four high school teenagers overcome all of the craziest odds to do so, to go see Kiss in none other than Detroit Rock City! Expand

    This movie is awesome! I am a massive KISS fan, I showed it to a few friends who weren't KISS fans and they found it pretty good. You could only really watch it again and again if you are a KISS fan! Its better than all those teen movies which is all about scoring before a social event or whatever. Its just a fun film about four teens trying to see THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD! Expand
