I guess the message of this movie is it's ok to laugh at hair metal. I openly admit I was into both Guns n' Roses and Poison when I was a kid... but the biggest thing I wonder while watching this movie is... what about the guys old enough to know better? What about all these groupies? Are they all soccer moms now like Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandon? What about all these failed musicians? I'm thinking this is partly a document of its time but also that of LA. Weirdos, man... weirdos.
Anyway, this was funny. I'm not quite sure it was as definitive a portrait as the first one was but whatever... I don't really NEED a definitive portrait of 80s rock... although preceeding this with Heavy Metal Parking Lot would've been perfect...

ahh... well, brief foray into 80s metal over, time for more Glenn Ford!
