Product Description

In this rockin' mix of physical comedy, heart and garage band/power rock/heavy metal music, "The Office's" Rainn Wilson trades his paper company desk job for rock 'n' roll fame, taking on the role of a big, sweaty, out-of-control - and sometimes naked - drummer who gets a second chance at rock superstardom. He's joined by Christina Applegate ("Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy"), Jeff Garlin ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Josh Gad ("21"), pop star Teddy Geiger and Emma Stone ("Superbad"). When we first meet Fish, he and his bandmates from Vesuvius are in full '80s glory - knocking out headbanging songs and sporting big hair, scarves, and impossibly tight leather pants. Just as Vesuvius is about to break big, Fish is tossed out of the band. Flash-forward twenty years: the ex-drummer extraordinaire, who lived, ate, breathed, slept - and most of all, sweated - rock n' roll, works for an insurance company and is living with his sister, brother-in-law and nephew Matt. In short, Fish is a broken man, stuck in a mid-life crisis. But when he learns that Matt's band, A.D.D. is searching for a new drummer, Fish volunteers - well, really, he begs - for a shot. Fish is over two decades older than his bandmates, yet somehow he completes A.D.D.: the brooding, hair-in-the-face singer Curtis; the stiff-as-a-board supernerd Matt; the ironic post-modern punk girl Amelia - and now the ancient rocker, Fish. Spurred by Fish's habit of rehearsing in the buff (and hip new moniker "The Naked Drummer"), A.D.D. becomes an internet sensation. They hit the road for their first big tour - along with Curtis' mom, Kim, as a chaperon. But as Fish once again lives the rock and roll life he thought was almost a birthright, he begins a journey that will take him to a place even he never thought possible: adulthood.

Most star vehicles center on one individual, but The Rocker doubles as a showcase for singer Teddy Geiger and The Office's Rainn Wilson. After his band, Vesuvius, kicks him to the curb, Cleveland drummer Robert "Fish" Fishman (Wilson) spends the next 20 years working in a cubicle and mourning for what might’ve been, while Vesuvius (Will Arnett, Bradley Cooper, and Fred Armisen) goes on to fame, fortune, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After Fish loses his job, he moves in with his sister (Jane Lynch) and her husband (Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin). As it turns out, Fish's nephew, Matt (21's Josh Gad), plays keyboards with guitarist Curtis (Geiger) and bassist Amelia (Superbad's Emma Stone). When Fish finds out that ADD needs a stickman to play the senior prom, he offers his services. After a bumpy start, their styles--hair metal and power-pop--start to gel, and they hit the road (SNL's Jason Sudeikis offers hilarious value as their hipster manager). During their first tour, Fish becomes an older brother figure to the fatherless Curtis and a potential love interest for his mother (Christina Applegate). Written by Maya Forbes (The Larry Sanders Show) and Wally Wolodarsky (The Simpsons) and directed by Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty), The Rocker doesn't break the mold for unlikely success stories--think Rock Star or School of Rock--but it's hard not to root for Wilson's sweet slob (and Geiger isn't bad either). --Kathleen C. Fennessy
