Oh Glee, thank you so much for popularizing the mash-up. Because without which, I never would have seen a delightful combination of the hideous “We Built this City” combined with my favorite asshole anthem “We’re Not Gonna Take It!”. I have a pretty strict ban on Tom Cruise movies, but Tom Cruise playing a somewhat addled Axl Rose-type was not too hard to swallow and Catherine Zeta-Jones,* Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand continually cracked me up.**
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.
*The “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” dance sequence was incredibly fun, and featured a bevy of delightful 80s “mom” clothes.
**And really, I was already sold because I own(ed) most of those songs either on 45rpm or cassette, but I can say that this was quite a well done movie musical.
