Rock of Ages, directed by Adam Shankman is based on the famous Broadway Musical. Starring Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta and Russell Brand among others, Rock of Ages is funny even though we wonder why few of the actors are unable to keep a straight face while tickling your funny bone. The romantic duo of Julianna and Diego was refreshing as the romance had an 80's feel to it.

If you are someone who is looking for a greatly written script and a wonderfully executed plot, Rock of Ages is definitely not your style! Watch it for the setting and the music by Poison, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Guns N' Roses, Journey, Foreigner and many more.


Story
Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough), brought up in a small town comes to the big bad city of LA and meets Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), and falls in love with him. She then picks a job with him at the Rock and Roll (Bourbon Room) bar. However, its Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin) is having a tough time with it and is unable to do anything much to save it from sinking!

Only Stacee Jax (Tom Cruise), a onetime rockstar, who spends almost all his time boozing can save the bar. But, he is messed up in life and is unwilling to do anything. Will Jax relent and start performing? This form the crux of the story.

Performances
Tom Cruise truly steels the show with his unkempt, eccentric and rugged looks as rockstar. Alec Baldwin and his business partner Lonny (Russell Brand) are funny and manage to make you laugh time and again.

Verdict
Rock of Ages does not 'rock,' but creates an impact with humourous one liners and very catchy rock music.
