Roadie

"Weak"

Roadie Review


This strange collaboration of Zalman King, Alan Rudolph, and Meat Loaf stands as one of cinema's big, cult oddities -- giving us the Loaf as a Texas beer trucker (hauling Shiner, by the way) who becomes a roadie in order to impress a groupie he encounters. Never mind that she's 16 years old. Te film approximates a road trip en route to an Alice Cooper show, but the plot is safely skippable. If only there were more musical bits (check the cast list!) -- and the lead actors didn't jabber constantly over them.
