Overview

Are you ready for the hottest band in the land? It's 1978 in Detroit, and pretty much any teenager who isn't a total wimp is totally stoked for the upcoming Kiss concert as anyone who ever listened to Kiss Alive! knows, Detroit has always loved this band. But four proud members of the Kiss Army find themselves without tickets to the show, and one has to deal with a mother who is convinced that Kiss and their music are evil incarnate. Will they be able to foil scalpers, security, and paranoid parents to witness the fire-spitting, blood-puking, hard rock frenzy that is Kiss on stage? Detroit Rock City stars Edward Furlong, Sam Huntington, Natasha Lyonne, Giuseppe Andrews, and James DeBello as the representative members of the Teenage Nation; the original four members of Kiss Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss play themselves, and Simmons also co-produced.

    Love it!

    A movie about teen friends that are doing everything to get to Detriot Rock City to watch their favorite band KISS. If you like KISS it's a must see. Even if you're not a fan of the band it's still a pretty good and funny movie.

    Genuinely funny...sometimes

    It's a pretty good movie, although there was just something off the whole time. It was almost really great, but didn't quite get there. Which I suppose is fine, if you like almost having an orgasm and not getting there. Sam Huntington was uber cute in it, though, so that's a plus.

    Very Funny Movie

    This was a great movie! It followed four young Kiss fans trying to obtain tickets to a Kiss concert. The cast and plot was a masterpiece!
