By JASON SILVERSTEIN Would anyone even care about "The Rocker" if Rainn Wilson wasn't in it? After all, it's your typical dime-a-dozen comedy where a simple trailer viewing tells you everything you need to know, including the fact that it's probably not the wisest choice at the multiplex. Still, it's the first leading film role for the actor behind Dwight Schrute, the iconic highlight character from "The Office," and there are many of the show's fans that would see pretty much anything...

By Rick Bentley Rainn Wilson joins the growing list of actors spawned from the Jerry Lewis school of acting. Like Jack Black, Adam Sandler and so many other young movie stars, Wilson will more often turn to a goofy face, a pratfall or a never ending string of ad libs in an effort to pull a laugh out of unfunny material. He's in full Jerry Lewis mode for "The Rocker." Wilson plays Fish, a drummer for a 1980s heavy metal band Vesuvius. Just as the band reaches Whitesnake notoriety, Fish...

By MAL VINCENT By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot IT'S NEVER too late to rock 'n' roll in the good-natured and pleasantly entertaining "The Rocker." It's all about a geezer (41?) who was almost a big rock star in the last century, but now is stuck in a desk job. Fish was the manic drummer in the heavy metal outfit Vesuvius some 20 years ago, but when a record executive wanted to replace him with a nephew, he got left behind. The group hit it big, and Fish was left singing a chorus of...

By Jason Foster Stories about rock bands have often translated into good movies. "This is Spinal Tap,""That Thing You Do,""Almost Famous" and "School of Rock" all come to mind. Borrowing from all of those, and from plenty of other done-to- death comedy staples, is "The Rocker," the story of a former almost rock star, Fish Fishman (Rainn Wilson), who's looking to finally realize his dream by playing drums in his nephew's struggling band. Over the course of the film, the band goes from...

By Christy Lemire REVIEW The Rocker HH RATING: PG-13 (drug and sexual references, nudity and language) DIRECTOR: Peter Cattaneo CAST: Rainn Wilson, Josh Gad, Teddy Geiger and Emma Stone THEATERS: Marquee Cinemas, Park Place Stadium Cinemas "The Rocker" might really have rocked if it didn't feel like a cover of a couple of superior comedies. The first and most obvious is "School of Rock." As a shlumpy, 40ish drummer who missed his shot at heavy-metal stardom, Rainn Wilson is pretty much...

By Rob Lowman Rainn Wilson gives a comic beat to "The Rocker," a movie that is otherwise the equivalent of generic rock. The filmmakers probably had Will Ferrell on their wish list to play Robert "Fish" Fishman, a man who has had to tamp down his dream to be a rock 'n' roll star for 20 years, but "The Office" star brings a nice human touch to the role, along with some laughs. You see, as a youth Fish had been the drummer in a heavy-metal band named Vesuvius that was poised on the brink...

By Jeff Vice Deseret News THE ROCKER -- ** 1/2 -- Rainn Wilson, Christina Applegate, Teddy Geiger; rated PG-13 (vulgarity, violence, brief nudity, profanity, brief drugs); Century Sandy and South Salt Lake; Cinemark Jordan Landing; Megaplex District, Gateway and Jordan Commons "The Rocker" is dumb. In fact, the film is so dumb that at times it hurts your brain to think about it. Yet the movie is sort of dumb-funny as well. This rock music comedy does has a few chuckles and belly laughs....

"The Rocker" features a washed-up, ex-band member, a high school band and a story of redemption. Sound familiar? The film has many similarities to the hit film "School of Rock." But "The Rocker" is fully packed with hilarious jokes, famous actors and an entertaining story that trumps "School of Rock" by far. The film begins in the 1980s with the back story of the main character, Robert "Fish" Fishman, who is let go from the band Vesuvius. About 20 years later, a second chance at fame...

(Special guests are Hilary McRae and Scott Harris. Tickets are $16 through Ticketmaster.) Asked about the difference between playing a rib festival and a historic music venue, Geiger dryly...
