    I can think of a few movies that have made excellent use of rock songsduring a climactic scene. Among them are APOCALYPSE NOW (The Doors:"The End"), BUFFALO 66 (Yes: "Heart of the Sunrise"), and THE PERFECTAGE OF ROCK N ROLL (Jane's Addiction: "Three Days"). This movie isworth watching for that climactic scene alone… the music, madness andlyrics are absolutely perfect.

    The movie is also peppered with short clips of great tunes likeAerosmith: "Last Child", Nirvana: "School", The Guess Who: "No Time",Iggy Pop: "Gimme Danger", Violent Femmes: "Blister in the Sun" and areal treat… the old blues standards "Krystalline" and "Train Kept ARollin" performed by none other than blues legends Sugar Blue, PinetopPerkins, Hubert Sumlin, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Bob Stroger who allmake a cameo appearance in the movie. Also be sure to stick around forthe closing credits where you'll hear Jeff Buckley's amazing cover ofthe Dylan song "I Shall Be Released".

    OK now let's talk about the movie itself…

    I'm trying hard not to compare this film to EDDIE & THE CRUISERS(1983)even though the plot is almost a carbon copy. The story startswith a reporter who tracks down & interviews a washed-up rocker 20years after he faded into obscurity. We are introduced to the mysteryof the missing studio tapes that vanished on the eve of theircompletion. The story unravels in flashbacks focusing on 2 bandmateswho need each other to write music and who, without each other, areworthless shells. The power of this film is contained in thelove/hate/rivalry between these two friends who fight over everythingfrom music to clothes to women. If you've seen EDDIE & THE CRUISERS(which all of you should do immediately), you're probably sitting theresmacking your head with déjà vu.

    Nonetheless, I still enjoyed this film. Just like "I DREAM OF JEANNIE"was a rip-off of "BEWITCHED" and we can still enjoy them both, I hadfun watching this movie. But if you hadn't guessed, I'm a bigger fan ofEDDIE.

    THE PERFECT AGE takes a gritty approach with lots of drug use, someviolence and a bit of sex/nudity. The acting is pretty believable,especially in a dramatic scene where the 2 heroes duke it out in therain. I would have preferred more of those types of scenes, and I feellike the movie could've been at least 30 minutes longer (it's only 90mins). But it still delivers a worthwhile show. My biggest gripe isthat it takes a detour from the musical/artistic themes and insteadspends a lot of time on the love story.

    What I liked about the film is that it doesn't hit you over the headwith obvious things. It takes you to the point where you say toyourself "I can guess what's going to happen next," and then it leavesyou there. In that respect, certain parts may be confusing, such as thesignificance of Peter Fonda's character (watch the deleted scenes onthe DVD extras). But I liked that because it forces your brain to worka little harder.

    If you like rock'n'roll movies I highly recommend "This is Spinal Tap"(1984), "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" (2008), "Singles" (1992),"Jailhouse Rock" (1957) and… jeez have I mentioned it enough…?EDDIE & THE CRUISERS!
