Prey for Rock and Roll

A Sears catalog of rock 'n' roll cliches, this screen adaptation of Cheri Lovedog's autobiographical play stars Gina Gershon as the middle-aged leader of an LA chick band who's been playing music for 20 years and can't understand why she isn't famous. (She looks and sounds like Suzy Quatro, for one thing.) Supposedly her bandmates (Lori Petty, Shelly Cole, and Drea de Matteo of The Sopranos) are like family, though they don't seem to like each other very much and, inexplicably, never talk about music. Various secondhand melodramas wax and wane before Gershon arrives at her sentimental epiphany in the last scene, about 19 years behind schedule. Alex Steyermark, a music coordinator, makes his directing debut; with Marc Blucas and Eddie Driscoll. 104 min.
