Brief Synopsis

A coming-of-age story that rocks four worlds: a story of four midwestern High Schoolers on an unstoppable quest to snag a quartet of KISS concert tickets. Over the course of one magical night, each undergoes a harrowing and hilarious experience as their insatiable desire to see their favorite band is pitted against authoritarian nightmares, parental hypocrisy, trials of conscience and the persistent influence of disco. What begins as the passionate pursuit of a rock ''n'' roll fantasy turns into a series of hair-pin turns and comic misadventures with one over-riding goal: the liberty to pursue their own dreams.

    Often amusing with a very likable cast, especially Edward Furlong who usually does a terrific job. It's a good story, nothing deep or significant,... MORE>
