‘Rock of Ages’ Movie-Susan’s Thumbs Up

There are many things to like about the movie ‘Rock Of Ages’. I can’t really liken it to anything, though it resonates the formula of ‘Grease’, Mama Mia, and musicals made into movies.
Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Paul Giamatti are pretty big hitters in this big movie. Tom Cruise owned it.

According to ScreenCrush.com ‘Rock of Ages‘ tanked, opening at number three with $15 million. You can blame the lousy marketing (which made the movie look like a true endurance test), you can blame the public’s lack of interest in movie musicals (although Shankman’s screen version of the musical ‘Hairspray’ grossed over $100 million a few years back) or you can blame the movie going public not being ready to accept Tom Cruise as an ’80s rock star (but he’s actually the best part of the movie!). The press will be ready to declare Cruise’s career dead or dying, but they have short memories. Remember how ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ made over $200 million last year? Yeah, Cruise will be fine. Shankman is the one who’s going to have to worry a bit.
