This movie is about a wannabe rock star in need of cash poses as a substitute teacher at a prep school, and turns his class into a rock band. This movie is fun and entertaining.

    "Detroit Rock City is one of the great coming of age movies about seeing bands live. A bunch of teens try to get into a sold out KISS show in the 70s, and they all end up getting into some pretty fun trouble along the way. If you have nostalgia for that kind of thing, this is a must see movie, for sure."
