"Rock of Ages" -- I LOVE It!

Marilyn and I are watching "Rock of Ages" On Demand -- and still loving every second!

I can't understand why it bombed. From the minute that film starts I'm singing along and enjoying myself. It brings me way up -- makes me super-happy. Isn't that one of the best things you can say about any movie???

Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta? Amazing! Tom Cruise? Incredible! (Even if you're not a fan, he's just so good as Stacee Jaxx.) Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand? One of the best couples of the year! Malin Maria Akerman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Mary J. Blige? How can you NOT love these women? And, yeah, I even thought Paul Giamatti was perfect in his slimy role as Stacee's manager, Paul Gill (and yeah, even Paul sings).

The story is fun and the music is WONDERFUL. What's not to love about this movie? Note that I didn't say 'like' -- because I'm way, way beyond liking it.

The mashup songs (think the best of "Glee" here) are a blast! But the movie had me from the first song on the bus, where all the riders -- even the driver -- are singing along!

I live in that world on some level, you know. The world where you ride a bus or walk down the street and everybody is singing along with you. I just love it!
