An overeager record company employee is assigned to pick up an over-the-hill British rock star from London and bring him to Los Angeles for a live concert, but things start going wrong from the beginning. Raucous, careening farce that at once pays tribute to and sends up rock mores with manic glee but not much in the way of visual flair; most of it will probably fly over the heads of less music-oriented viewers as juvenile, if conveniently energetic, toilet humor.
