This movies makes me feel young again!

I have always loved this movie. I bought it on VHS back in the day and I have seen it many times now. Recently my current streaming service suggested it, and I just pressed play right away with a big smile!
It has a very simple but sweet story. The plot is predictable and it does have a few quite lame scenes , but it works fine for the light comedy genre

The main cast is quite impressive; Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler. All three great actors in an early stage of their superstar career. (Maybe except Buscemi - he has been a hit always!).

Being a movie about a hard rock band the sound track obviously is right in my taste. I never bought the album, but I remember borrowing it at the library several times.

This is an old classic rock movie. For me it still works today and if you are into light comedy and trying to be a part of a hard rock band, this is just the perfect movie for you.
