Product Description

When a four-girl, one-guy rock group called The Mystery gets its first gig at a club, it's not just a chance to perform, it's also an opportunity to get out of the inner city¿and see what life is all about. Fresh out of high school, the group spends the summer playing a club in an exclusive beach resort. There they find romance, adventure and, for the lead singer Jennie Lee (Bateman), a dilemma: to pursue her budding career or return to school. Liam Neeson and Julia Roberts co-star.

It's hard to believe there was ever a time when Justine Bateman was a bigger star than Julia Roberts, but Satisfaction is the evidence of that brief moment. It's also a movie unjustly maligned, perhaps because it's a little more frank about the sexuality of young women than older male movie critics find comfortable. Jennie Lee (Bateman, Family Ties) and her band (Roberts, soon to become one of the biggest movies stars in the world; Trini Alvarado, Little Women; Britta Phillips, later to be the bassist for the rock band Luna; and Scott Coffey, the only actor to appear in both Ferris Bueller's Day Off and David Lynch's Mulholland Drive) go to a beach town where they get a gig playing in a club run by a former songwriter (Liam Neeson, Schindler's List). Over the course of a summer, they fall in love, have sex, and play rock and roll--but the tone and texture of the movie is more American Graffiti than Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Perhaps because Satisfaction was directed by a woman, the girls are startlingly well drawn and distinct, despite the movie's episodic nature. Surprisingly, the music has some grit to it, perhaps because it was produced by the legendary Steve Cropper (of Booker T. and the MGs). Even more surprising, Roberts doesn't pop out as a future star; watching Satisfaction, you could imagine that anyone in this strong ensemble--even Justine Bateman--could go on to great things (if anyone stands out, it's Britta Phillips, who then dropped out of movies altogether). Satisfaction is not profound, but it is more honest and nonjudgmental about the messiness of life, youth, and love than the overwhelming majority of teen movies. Debbie Harry has a brief but memorable cameo. --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

Justine Bateman plays the part great!
Amazon Customer
This a great chick flick for any girl that likes music or just a good movie to watch by yourself or with your friends!
Rhonda Stahl
Anyway, the only really good moments of Satisfaction come in the way of the performances the girls put on.

Satisfaction... is it goofy? Yes. Dated? Definitely 80's. Light/Fluffy? Yes. Bad acting? I bet Julia Roberts would pay to have her scenes erased forever. All of these questions miss the point however!! The appropriate question about this movie should be, "Is it FUN?", and the answer is "Oh yeah!".

Like day time talk shows, comic books, and that old Poison album hiding in the back of your closet, this movie is a guilty pleasure to be enjoyed, but never admitted to! If you are in, or just really like rock bands, this movie is even better (almost inspirational). It's a fun romp with a young (mosly girl) band who land the ultimate gig at a summer beach resort. Music, mayhem, and rock band movie cliches ensue. The humor is funny.... the "drama" is even funnier (the lead guitarist breaks her drug addiction in one day, because the band tells her to!)! Be sure to look for Debbie Harry (Blondie), who turns in the movie's best acting performance in a five minute cameo. The soundtrack is strangely good (retro 80's), and the "band" in the movie actually performs on it! See the movie, and you will have no doubt that Justine Bateman sang her own vocals... which may or may not be a good thing!

If you've ever strummed an electric guitar, or just dreamed of rocking out and hitting the road with your friends, you must see this movie!!

What a cast of actors--Justine Bateman, Liam Neeson and Julia Roberts. The music is perfect and the story is pure fun. This movie was an unexpected pleasure and well worth watching more than once!

It is just an OK film until you realize that Liam Neeson (Michael Collins & Star Wars) and Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) were engaged to be married during the making of this film, Britta Phillips was cartoon vocals for JEM and Justine Bateman was starting fresh from Family Ties. Filmed in Charleston, SC, it is full of great backdrops. The acting is weak at times and the story is predictable. Trini Alvarado gives a believable performance. Still, it is fun to watch how these actors have grown. Lots of fun for a Saturday afternoon viewing and a must for true fans of Julia Roberts.

SATISFACTION is the best movie in the universe!! The music hella rocks...and I love Billie (Britta Phillips ~JEM~)...she is such an awesome character!! I love the way she sang "Mr. Big Stuff" and "God Bless the Child." This movie is really fun and exciting to watch for people of all ages--especially rock 'n' roll fans!!

I have enjoyed this movie since it first came out. I'm from SC, near the Charleston beaches, and the fact that this was filmed on Isle of Palms just makes the whole movie even cooler. I went to the original Windjammer (where the band in the move played) before Hurricane Hugo took it out in 1989. They built a bigger and better Jammer, but the old one has never been forgotten. I got this movie for my dad's birthday. He just loves Julia Roberts.

i am a big fan of the 80's movie even though most are a bit corny. And the same goes for this one at times but i love it. You get to see Julia Roberts and a younger Liam Neeson which is great. Also has a pretty good sound track and Justine Bateman does a good job of lip-syncing. Save when it looks as if she is gonna eat the mic. Over all is a good movie. Hope this review helped. Enjoy the movie.

Format: DVD
This is a really underated movie. I have always listed it among my favorites because it is simply fun and well done. Great performances by stars Justine Bateman and Liam Niesen not to mention the supporting characters (including Julia Roberts and a cameo by Deborah Harry), but Britta Phillips steals the show as Billy. This film was the first place I was made aware of her vocal talents, but as it turns out she was also the singing voice of 80's cartoon idol Jem!. She later went on to play with a number of bands in the UK (Belltower) and NY (Luna). This film is really worthwile for the music (which is fun and amatuerish, most sung by Justine Bateman), the story (which is dramatic and comedic as necessary) and the cast (who are all give top rank performances).

I was 17 when I saw this movie for the first time. My best friend and I loved it, and we both bought the Soundtrack (on casette tape!). I can't find my copy, and I would die to know how to get one. I have looked everywhere. We loved this movie for the simplicity that it was. It's definitely no Oscar-winner, but it's fun, and easy to watch. The singing and songs are all enjoyable. I recommend it highly.
