   The story was a little cliched, but remembering it is a musical will help.It flowed smoothly and  was very enjoyable. All character roles were played well. Christina's acting abilities were stretched at times. Cher and Peter Gallagher both played good parts as the owners of the club with Stanley Tucci as Sean the club manager, being the standout. A bit of a musical vehicle for Aguileras voice,which is sensational but overdoes it at times,where it can get annoying. The music was well placed into the story and a song called Last of Me by Cher was a good addition!
 Overall I would rate this movie as 7.5 mainly for its entertainment value and good music score.Well worth a look!


                                       Warning dont read comments it will give the story away!

  A super movie! I really enjoyed this one. A good mixture of humor and horror which adds to the unique feel of the movie.Throw in a great storyline and super character roles and it can't miss.
Do your self a favor take a look you will be surprised.
     The setting has a group of people stuck in an elevator.The same morning there is a suicide out of one of the buildings apartment windows.The investigating police officers are about to have more on their plate than a suicide.A well written script,humor and character parts lift this to an 8.5 rating. Well worth seeing.

Our DVD Review

The Runaways

  This musical I am afraid falls a little flat.All character roles are played well. Kirsten Stewart is super as Joan Jett and Michael Shannon plays a good part as the girls manager Kim Fowley.What let's it down is the storyline. It's just basically the story of the first all girl rock band and that is where it starts and ends.
I am going to give it 5.5 for the character acting and the novelty.It was watchable so i am not bagging it altogether.
