Rainn Wilson takes centre stage in this wildly irreverent comedy about living your dreams -and embarrassing your family - at any cost. Twenty years after being kicked out of his nearly famous '80s rock group, Robert "Fish" Fishman (Wilson) gets a hilarious second chance at stardom when he joins his nephew's high school garage band. Without missing a beat, Fish vows to reclaim the rock-god throne he always thought he deserved... while taking his much younger bandmates along for the ride of their lives!
Zero Comedy and Bad Songs.

The only reason for renting this was I'm a big fan of the U.S version of ‘The Office’ and was interested to see Rainn Wilson in his first big feature film, but ‘The Rocker’ was a huge disappointment. There were a couple of slapstick moments that made me chuckle, but on the whole this is a desperately unfunny film with a formula driven script, generic characters, predictable storyline and instantly forgettable power-pop songs, all of which wouldn’t look out of place on the Disney Channel. If you’re under the age of 12, love films like ‘High School Musical’, ‘Camp Rock’ and think the Jonas Brothers, Busted or McFly are cool then you may find something in ‘The Rocker’ to like, but otherwise avoid this turkey, it’s an absolute stinker.
