I loved the movie as a child and was very surprised to see that Mick Jagger had penned it - and although the story is not overly original, I am still impressed that he made the effort and had some success. I think that it would be a great film to sit down with my wife and my son to watch sometime.
The music is catchy and although it is a little outdated - it should still be appreciated by the youth of today with its simple rock beat and melodic choruses. I'll give it a go with my boy and see what he thinks! However, I thought he'd love 'Grease' but I caught him fast-forwarding through some of the slower songs in that - I figure that it is not as intense and as action-packed as 'The Rings' and 'Star Wars' Epochs that he enjoys so much.
