Let the weekend of Rock n’ Roll, spandex, debauchery, black nail polish, guyliner and nothin’ but a good time begin! No, we’re not talking about the presidential campaign trail, we’re talkin’ bout’ ‘Rock Of Ages’ time, dudes!
To rock out this weekend 80’s glam-metal style with Stacee Jaxx and the cast, check out the official ‘Rock of Ages’ website for movie times and locations!
Speaking of Stacee Jaxx, will he rock? Well, says legendary film critic, Roger Ebert, within his recent ‘Rock of Ages’ review:
“In a movie where all the stars except the leads are essentially satirizing themselves, Tom Cruise is the most merciless on himself. Stacee Jaxx, his muscular body a quiltwork of tattoos, travels with a couple of grim bodyguards (Kevin Nash, of all people, and Jeff Chase, a giant 6’7″ bodybuilder). Stacee has such a big ego that when he’s interviewed by a Rolling Stone reporter (Malin Akerman), he’s so narcissistically seductive he almost seduces himself. “
Roger Ebert isn’t the only one raving about ‘Rock Of Ages,’ YOU are too! We’re excited to see your ‘Rock Of Ages’ Twitter reviews, guys! YOU Rock!
