5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music - Great Film July 19 2004
Format:DVD
Gina Gerhson absolutely incredible. Do you remember the first time you heard (take your pick) Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, The Ramones, Patti Smith, White Stripes.......well, here it is again - that same feeling - rock and roll guts.....so it doesn't matter what the other reviewers say...this one has it and the only way you will really know is if you listen to it yourself. If you like real rock and roll, real intensity, no holds barred.....get it.
The band - actually playing (versus the movie band) is Gina Gershon vocals, Gina Volpe guitar piano backup vocals, Cheri Lovedog guitar, Sara Lee bass, Samantha Maloney drums (on all songs except Studiostar). Studiostar was done by Gina Gershon, Linda Perry, and Patty Schemel. All songs were written by Cheri Lovedog (with help from Grace Chapman on Every Six Minutes and Stephen Trask on Bitter Pill).....except Studiostar, which was written by Gina Gershon and Linda Perry.
The band in the movie is Gina Gershon (Jackie) vocals & guitar, Lori Petty (Faith) lead guitar, Shelley Cole (Sally) drums, and Drea de Matteo (Tracy) bass.
At least this is the info on the CD linear notes and on the web movie sites. If the truth is different, it doesn't seem to be out there yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gem of a movie, a must buy May 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
PREY FOR ROCKK AND ROLL is one of my favorte movies. It's funny, sexy, inspiring and exiting. Gina Gershon is wonderful as an old blown out bitter rocker chick. Her band Clam Dandy consists of Tracy ( Drea de Mateo) a druged out bassist who is described as a "beautiful mess" who's boyfriend Nick ( Evan Martin) becomes trouble for the band. Then comes Sally ( Sally Cole) the 23 year old innocent lesbien drum player who's brother is an ex murderer named Animal ( the very sweet Mark Blucas) he becomes the love interest. Last but not least is Faith ( Lori Petty), Sally's partner and a " guitar god by night, guitar teacher by day" Lori provides the humar and heart of the cast, and the easy standout. She deserved more screen time and credit for her performance. The band has good chemestry and all the actors turn in good performances. The scripts has many twists and turns which helps the film with the exeption of the twist envolving Faith in the last fifteen minutes of the movie ( I won't give it away) seems pointless and disapointing, but it doesn't take anything away from the the rest of the movie so that's good. Prey... is a great movie and its a shame it didn't get around to more viewers when it first came out, but nows your chance. Go out and get this movie!!!!!!!!!! Trust me you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Movie May 3 2004
Format:DVD
Jacki (Gina Gershon) the lead singer and guitar player for the punk band Clam Dandy has just turned forty. She's been playing for twenty years for low pay in dives hoping to make it. Finally a small label offers the band a recording contract then Faith (Lori Petty) their lead guitar player is killed. When the contract arrives it isn't what Jacki had hoped for. What she does with it, is hillarious!
The music is awesome and so is the acting! An enlightening peak inside the life of what's it's like to play in a bar band, who never made it!

3.0 out of 5 stars ATTENTION JOE BOB BRIGGS!!+THEATRE OWNERS TOO!! April 13 2004
Format:DVD
OH, how I love gina gershon! is this movie worth your time?--if you like rock and roll, lesbians, tatoos, drinking+smokin and shooting(drugs). then this movie is for you. joe bob, would give this 5 star for all the FUFESTivities. lets see, lesbian fu, drugfu, tatoofu, hotbabefu, RRfu, rapefu, fightfu, beatinthehelloutofarapistfu, overweightmusicmgrfu and post cumshotvomitfu, need I say more. what I think is important to know is the movie does not need to be seen on vhs or dvd*---as my title suggests is that driveins take note, secondruntheatres who need something of a classic midnite show offering and anyone else who needs product to bring in customers. this movie would make a great nite rental* for some, showing for midnite viewers at theatres because it has everything a man or woman would want to see. I really do believe that this movie has that kind of potential!!*---*also of note is the cable IFC channel is showing several weeks of shows that are kind of like a MAKING OF+BEHIND THE SCENES look at this movie. you may have to order the channel it is not offered unless you pay more for it here--columbus, ohio. also of noteworthy notes is a mention to record promoters---the really good track in the movie is a song called EVERY 6 MINS. if the world can tolerate JANIES GOT A GUN and multiple songs of such---then this song should be played. PUT IT ON THE RADIO or release it as a single. my expertise in this area---I know when something sounds right!! any time I get to see GINA grrrr! with strutting, snarling, posing, frenchkissingfu, and general (...) on screen and stage. GET ME A TICKET. jh, ps, oh yeah--the movie is based on some woman who never made it in punk rock in the 80's ---hmmmmmnnnn?-------just see the movie will ya!!!!
