Thanks to some try-dtv-package, I stumbled upon this movie on showtime. No, it is no threat to "Lawrence of Arabia", but it is great fun. If you're down in the dumps, you won't be by the end. I think its great charm lies in the fact everyone seems to be enjoying themselves BIGTIME (you know that before you get to the hysterical outtakes during the final credits). I liked the small touches of dressing up in "disguise" and going to a country dance or watching tadpoles in the lake.

The cast, from experienced to newer are endearing. Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright are very good sports, easing minor wince-enducing moments with grace and I admit grinning ear to ear at seeing them shake it on the dance floor.

What really surprised me was the music. I may not be an expert rock n'roll critic - but they was good. The songs stick in your mind and as another reviewer mentioned, written and performed by a band called "casino" (formerly northstar). Really too bad they released no soundtrack.

I really don't care if it puts my good taste into question. I liked this movie. It was sweet.

"Global Heresy" a/k/a "Rock My World" is an odd little ($12 Million) production that was incorrectly marketed as another "Spinal Tap". I've seen "Spinal Tap" and this is no ......... But what it lacks in comedy it makes up in unpretentious charm.

You wonder what idiot determines the target audience for these productions. With Alicia Silverstone posed in tight silver pants on the poster, they tried unsuccessfully to market it to Gen X viewers; but Alicia has at best a small supporting role and never appears in the pictured outfit so it is no surprise that it did not catch on with that demographic. Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright play the two main characters and they are unlikely to attract young viewers. Baby boomers are the audience most likely to connect with the film, despite a cast that is a mix of actors older and younger than that group. But boomers are the real rock fans and are old enough to appreciate the subtle script and the underplayed performances of O'Toole and Plowright. Too bad it was not originally marketed to that group.

The original ill-conceived title refers to the name of an American rock band whose founder has disappeared and is feared dead. Needing time to integrate his replacement (bass player Silverstone) into the group, their management company rents an English estate from the impoverished Lord and Lady Foxley where they can secretly rework their material. The couple finds out that they can make even more money by impersonating the servants. Much the same premise as "High Spirits", where O'Toole rented his haunted Irish castle to tourists.

The band members like to party but are basically likable young people and their music is actually pretty good.

This review will probably never see the light of day. Amazon has refused to publish my last four reviews and of course I have no business knowing why. This is such a good find I can't resist doing it.

I hessitate to call the sounds the rock band make music, but generosity compels it. You, hopefully will enjoy it because there is a lot here--more than necessary. Even it can't detract from this very funny and charming movie. With O'Toole it is assured.

A very stiff Lord and his lady, strapped for cash, rent their mansion to this country's most famous rock band annonymously. To keep it secret the butler and cook are sent on holiday. Time runs out and the group's arrival is immenent, but they are still without staff, so the lord must assume duties of the butler while his lady acts as cook. From this point all fun breaks out.

If you are a movie snob, avoid this. If you want to laugh so your neighbors call the police or paramedics, this is for you.

This is a surprisingly good and entertaining movie you've probably never heard of, and it's a shame. Just spending ninety minutes with Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright is worth the price! They play a snooty Lord and Lady undergoing financial strife who rent out their lovely manor to a famous rock band who is looking for a place to regroup and write new music. They've lost their founder and leader, and have hired Alicia Silverstone to replace him as their bassist. But what makes this movie so delightful is the cultural differences we see between the masquerading butler and his wife and the wordly demeanor of the band members. Director Sidney J. Furie smartly keeps the focus on these differences and how the inter-relationships change all involved. The entire cast is perfect, with Silverstone surrendering gracefully to the marvelous performances of the seasoned veterans. ROCK MY WORLD is a refreshingly entertaining surprise of a movie. Recommended.

I stumbled across this movie while flipping around my HBO-type channels. I stopped when I heard the music although I had no idea what I was watching. I was surprised the see Peter O'Toole and Joan Plowright in these roles but they seemed to be having fun!! I like when actors take on tongue in cheek roles and don't mind stepping down a bit.

I made sure I caught the full movie next time it was showing. I must admit that I found the movie fun to watch. You didn't have to think, you didn't have the melodrama or depressing attitudes of today's movies. You just sit and enjoy the movie and the music.
