Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A remake of sorts for Showtime of a 1957 teen-exploitation cheese-fest, Shake, Rattle & Rock captures much of the campy, cult vibe it obviously intended to create, given the choice of director, Allan Arkush, best known for the similarly themed Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979), and the casting of oddball favorites Howie Mandel, Mary Woronov, John Doe, P.J. Soles, Gerrit Graham, and Paul Anka in supporting roles. What makes the film work, however, is the youthful exuberance of its star, Renee Zellweger, who makes the most of this early opportunity by radiating energy and charm in every scene. The topical issues -- racism, oppressive conservatism, rebellious youth -- are handled gently but not brushed aside, giving just enough seriousness for the farce to bounce off. The music, featuring tunes by Eddie Cochran, Fats Domino, Little Richard, and Iggy Pop (doing a terrific remake of Cochran's "C'mon Everybody"), is the heart and soul of the film, and it's used perfectly. A bright, fast-moving production with a cast as perky as its star, Shake, Rattle & Rock deserves a look.

This is just a cool movie. Really. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that it was extrememly short and the open ending-but it make sense to have an open ending with this set of complications because they still exist today. The point is that despite the fact I saw this movie on accident, it's definately worth the money and you should see it too.
