Consensus: Its exuberant silliness is almost enough to make up for its utter inconsequentiality, but Rock of Ages is ultimately too bland and overlong to justify its trip to the big screen.

Feelin' the noise ain't the same as feeling something for the characters, most of whom fail to amp it up in the soul department.
