Critic Reviews of "The Rocker"
Christian Science MonitorNovember 21, 2008
A whacked-out, superannuated, would-be rock star might seem to be too easy a comic target, but Wilson gives this sad sack so many fresh twists that he never wears out his welcome.
Time OutOctober 17, 2008
As a movie, it may not rock, but it rolls along nicely enough.
AV ClubAugust 22, 2008
It's a slave to formula, and it hits its marks satisfyingly enough to make for a pleasant time-passer, but Wilson and a loaded supporting cast are never as funny as they should be.
Wall Street JournalAugust 22, 2008
The Rocker has the requisite vomit, the view of some very unfortunate hind quarters and the suds. It's also got a vein of sweetness and charm.
Globe and MailAugust 22, 2008
The melody of The Rocker feels predictable but the beat is refreshingly off-kilter.
Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 20, 2008
The film equivalent of an inoffensive throwaway track, what we used to call a B-side, back in the days of Vesuvius.

The Rocker is more Keane than Keith Moon: slow, safe and about as edgy as a tangerine.

Just because one is a scene stealer on TV does not mean he or she is big screen material, period, much less a movie star.
Reel Film ReviewsFebruary 06, 2009
...an agreeable, sporadically hilarious comedy that benefits substantially from the almost uniformly strong performances.
DVDTalk.comJanuary 29, 2009
All premise and no purpose.
ColliderJanuary 08, 2009
Perhaps The Rocker's most annoying feature is that it isn't completely terrible.
