Plot: Jamie Z. (Attila) is one of the hottest rock stars around, but he is more focused on girls and parties than his music. While he loves the wild lifestyle his fame affords him, his manager has grown tired of his antics. Sure the money is good, but if the manager could find a way to knock off his famous client, the insurance payout would be enough to fund his retirement in style. But when the plan goes a little haywire, Jamie ends up with Alex (April Lerman), a sorority girl who also happens to be a fan. After a wild night, she decides to keep her rock star around for a while, so she handcuffs him to the bed to make sure he doesn’t wander off. Will this kidnapping prove to be life saving for Jamie or will his manager still find a way to collect that insurance cash?
Entertainment Value: I was lured into Rock and Roll Fantasy, aka Sorority House Party, by the involvement of David Michael Latt, who would go on to found the legendary b movie empire The Asylum. The movie is no 90s classic, but it is a fun, brisk comedy that is soaked in 90s vibes, so it is likely to appeal to those addicted to the decade or anyone who likes some light sleaze mixed in with their cornball humor. The narrative is of course beyond silly and over the top, but that’s part of the charm here and I doubt many expect deep introspection in this case. Rock and Roll Fantasy knows what it wants to be and just tries to earn some laughs, with colorful characters, ridiculous scenarios, and odd, almost sitcom style humor at times. If you don’t appreciate a hokey, even groan inducing sense of humor, this one might be lost on you, but I love bad jokes, so I had fun with this one. I’d recommend it to those who like 80s and 90s sex comedies, though it is toned down compared to most of its peers.
There is some light nakedness here, not as much as the sex comedy vibe might suggest, but some topless scenes are present. These are brief and infrequent, but add some fun and naughtiness, so don’t discount the bare breasts here. The tone of the movie is light and breezy, so the occasional nipple feels right at home. No blood, which makes sense given this is a light comedy. I know there’s a subplot to kill our beloved rock star, but it never involves intense, graphic violence. The dialogue is steeped in the 90s lingo and made all the better by the cast, as there is might not be a lot of elite tier thespianship, but there is ample enthusiasm. This lead to even the most awkward or unfunny lines having some charm, which is always a plus. I suppose you need a slanted sense of humor to revel in some of the writing involved, but fans of b movie comedies should be able to find a good amount of fun lines here. As for general craziness, the plot makes no sense, but the movie never goes as wild as it could. Perhaps a more go for broke approach might have made Rock and Roll Fantasy a little more memorable, but it is still a fun, wacky ride.
Overall Insanity: 2/10
