A comedy about the 1980s might not sound like an interesting concept. But Rock of Ages isn't your typical 80s film. This movie-- based on the successful musical-- reportedly tells the story of a club struggling to survive in 1987. But the movie's biggest draw might be Tom Cruise's exciting turn as the (shirtless) rocker Stacee Jaxx.
Films like this are usually disappointing odes to the decade of greed, but Ages looks different and with a cast that includes Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta-Jones, this could be a fun ride. Sure, we could be disappointed by it but Tom Cruise as a rock star is definitely something we want to see on the big screen.
