A lightweight love song to a legendary rock club, Randall Miller's CBGB plays in many ways like a Greatest Hits record, re-packaging a beloved band's oeuvre for sale at shopping malls. Full Review

Crammed into a mere 90 minutes, it's just a cavalcade of rock star impressions, performed on the same little stage during a series of auditions and performances. Full Review

The music rocks, but little else does, in Randall Miller's sitcom snapshot of New York's iconic punk incubator. Full Review

Rating: B -- It's fun, affectionate and certainly tuneful, but it doesn't get under anyone's skin. Full Review

Unless you're morbidly curious about how one of the loudest, strangest, and most irreverent and original moments in rock history can be transformed into a jukebox musical for the entertainment of precisely no one, there's no need to see CBGB. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- In place of punk's howling rage, you get gross-out jokes that include at least a half-dozen close-ups of the poop from Kristal's bowel-challenged dog. Full Review

Moments of nostalgic emotion are ever so briefly reached, and evaporate so quickly that your only desire will be to listen to the actual music of the cavalcade of artists paraded across the screen. Full Review
