Enjoy at any age, it’s fun and exciting

If you understand the humor and can relate to the feelings and excitement of the character you’ll love DRC because it shows the true love of rock and gives a perfect 70’s example of Disco Vs. Rock

An underrated masterpiece

Obviously this film is not for young children, the movie cover and the trailer should tell you as much. Nevertheless this movie is truly great. It is about four young aspiring rock stars risking it all to see their idols, KISS. The four main characters are basically outsiders at home. Weather it's feeling uninterested at school, alone at home, or disco being at every corner the boy's risk it all for the chance to see the hottest band in the world. The movie is hilarious, outrageous, and can truly merge both the real and cartoon like world. Regardless of what others might say there are some good messages in the film. Some examples would be facing your fears, not being judgmental, and being smart. In the movie one character confronts his abusive mother, another faces his fear of stage fright, another faces his fear of dogs. In a scene regarding the boys helping the disco loving girl Christine, the boys assume expect her to be horrible and quite easy for her music taste; however that is not the case, Christine ends up being the opposite of what they expected. Towards the end of the film the burnout character Trip, who is insulted throughout the movie for lack of brains, ends up needing to use his brains when needed most. Regardless of the other reviews I have read, this will always be one of my favorite movies. And of course it is perfect for any KISS fan!!
