    Wall Street Journal

    The Rocker has the requisite vomit, the view of some very unfortunate hind quarters and the suds. It's also got a vein of sweetness and charm. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The Rocker can be amusingly dopey, with its "Spinal Tap"-ish lampooning of rock idioms - and idiots. show more

    Wilson works overtime to hold Peter Cattaneo's flimsy comedy together. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Overcomes its essential familiarity thanks to a frequently witty script, grounded direction (by Peter Cattaneo, of "Full Monty" fame) and an engaging turn by its star that proves him more than capable of carrying a comedy feature. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    This familiar scenario works because of well-written and acted characters. The disciplined direction is by Peter Cattaneo, who tackled somewhat similar material in "The Full Monty" a decade ago. show more

    The movie's is really good, clean fun that's fine for slightly older kids and a lot of fun for adults. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    A grubby little redemption comedy that in every way feels like a consignment-shop Jack Black vehicle. show more
