As for the quality of the DVD...the movie appears to have been filmed digitally and the picture quality is excellent for a small-budget film such as this one. The sound is great as well. I just wish there were more extras on the making of the movie & perhaps some raw footage of Gina singing.
Like sports movies, I'm tired of the less-than-realistic and cheesy rock movies. You don't always make it to the big time. In fact, you don't always catch a break and get a gig playing simply in a club. This movie is the story of one band, Clam Dandy, that did not make it. A true story, by the way, for those of you who complained about the rape and other dramatic elements.
I'm not going to bother reviewing every sequence, you'll just have to watch the movie. I liked it. Period. If Gina Gershon isn't reason enough to see this movie, here's another: she sings both the songs and plays the guitar. Now that's sexy.
Put together a cast of modern B-rated female actresses (Gina Gershon, Lori Petty, Drea De Matteo and Shelly Cole) in a film about a female LA club band trying to make it big and watch this film cook.
Prey for Rock & Roll is a small indy film and draws you into the story. Based on Cheryl Lovedog's plaY, This is not a female Hard Day's Night or Spice World. This FILM is a taste of real life with its darker side. Its raw filmmaking with a driven story of success and failure mixed with death and life. This is NOT American Idol, this is real life Rock & Roll 101. This is not hype, but it does get heavy handed in spots. This R rating this film has is earned, but it is needed to move this story. You can smell the darkeness of one's soul from this movie
Now to the acting.... Gina Gershon is amazing, best since her role in Showgirls. The part of an over 40 year old rocker is taylor made for here. She sings the Cheryl Lovedog songs with so much passion and heart, you wonder when her album is coming out. And in their what happened to them department, Welcome back to filmmaking Ms Lori Petty--this is not a League of Our Own, but you blend well in this film. Drea de Matteo , i see why you won your Emmy, too bad not many in the Oscar area saw this film...you would have had one of those too!
If you are seeking a nice cute, clean rock & roll film, rent A Hard Day's Night. Help, Spice Girls or Sgt Pepper...If you want a real slice of what it means to live, breath and love what Rock & Roll is and its not so pretty underside, THIS IS YOUR MOVIE.

All in all, the actors were good but they didn't have much to work with. Too bad...
