Taking viewers on a hilarious ride into the grungy world of rock and roll, The Rocker tells the story of Robert 'Fish' Fisherman, a failed drummer desperate to get a second shot at his 15 minutes of fame. Released on the 9th March 2009 by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment this irreverent comedy follows Fish as struggles to reclaim the heady heights of rock superstardom that were so nearly his. Roping his teenage nephew's band into his outrageous plans along the way Fish is determined to live his dreams, no matter what the cost.

Unceremoniously ditched by eighties band Vesuvius as they teeter on the brink of fame, wannabe rock-god Fish (Rainn Wilson The American Office) spends the next twenty years of his life watching bitterly as Vesuvius become legends, living the rock and roll lifestyle that should have been his.

Hell-bent on seeking revenge against the band that shattered his dreams and fired from yet another meaningless job, Fish moves in with his long-suffering sister and socially-inept nephew Matt (Josh Gad). When Matt's high school rock band 'ADD' lose their drummer, Fish throws himself into the role desperate to reclaim his rock-god throne. Aiming for superstardom he takes the band on the ride of their lives and as their star begins to ascend Fish realises he might get a second shot at the big time and a chance to exact the revenge he so desperately desires.

Directed by Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty and Lucky Break) and with a stellar supporting case that includes Christina Applegate (Anchorman) and Emma Stone (Superbad), The Rocker is a laugh-out-loud, energetic comedy perfect for all aspiring rockers.
