Rock of Ages - A. Shankman 2012
Notwithstanding my personal views on Tom Cruise as a person / celeb / actor (strangely, he is a very skilled actor although I find it extremely hard to believe he is also a real person) him playing Axl Rose in a corny rock musical could, theoretically, somehow, I suppose, have worked.
I do see a number of reasons why it shouldn't, but with a Baz Luhrmann behind the wheel, why not?
Adam Shankman, however, is the man behind 'Hairspray' (the 2007 film version; I don't mean John Waters..!) and 'Glee', which becomes embarrassingly obvious when viewing 'Rock of Ages'.
How on earth did this even get released??
