Detroit Rock City
In 1978 Detroit, a Kiss concert was an epoch-making event. In director Adam Rifkin's riotous comedy, four teens (Giuseppe Andrews, James DeBello, Edward Furlong and Natasha Lyonne) find that getting tickets to the sold-out show becomes the focal point of their existence. They'll do anything for tickets -- compete in a strip club's amateur-night contest, take on religious protesters and even rob a convenience store!

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is something of a valentine to sex, drugs, and rock and roll, to say nothing of lying, cheating, stealing, destroying property, and cutting school. Much of the humor in the film will be lost on people who don't know every KISS lyric and remember the KISS comic with the band's blood mixed into the red ink.
