The Rocker

If you loved 80’s rock music, if you want to have a laugh, and if you want to do it all with your family also, this is a good choice to pick. The Rocker starts off with the main character Robert ‘Fish’ Fishman played by Rainn Wilson who is a drummer for the band Vesufius. After pulling some gigs they finally got recognized and were given the opportunity of a life time, but there was a catch the band had to replace Fish with the studio’s director son. Years had passed and the band had an amazing success, and you can only imagine what toe this burden took on Fish who became somehow obsessed. This obsession caused him to lose his job, his girlfriend and a lot more funny things happened until he ends up playing in his nephew’s band. While practicing they end up getting filmed and posted on YouTube and they become a instant success and one things leads to another and they get on the road to fame.
