Who even remembers this shitty thing? Its creators love for Joan Jett's formative band doesn't translate beyond its stale and utterly dispensable biopic story. At all. I just didn't care and wasn't really given any good reason to except for the standard biopic line about how "These girls changed rock by making their troubled personalities their art." Blah blah blah alcoholism blah blah blah vampish narcissism blah blah blah lesbian kiss scene blah. Blah. Bleh. Yeah, yeah, Michael Shannon's great, yeah, yeah. But that's because A) he's Michael Shannon B) he's allowed to cut loose and have fun by popping up periodically and exploding while the rest of the actors are shackled to truly dull characters that get more face time because...well, I don't really know. Who gives a flying fart? So glad I brought my flask to this.
