Trivia

While this film takes place in the 50's (and is actually a remake of a 50's movie) with no direct affiliation to Roger Coreman's Rock n' Roll High School, which took place in '79/'80, three actresses from RNRHS (Mary Waranov, PJ Soles, and Dey Young) play characters in this film named after their RNRHS characters (Evelyn Togar/E. Jayne Togar, "Riff" Randall/Evelyn Randall, and Kate Rambeau/Kate Rambeau Sr.; respectively). See more »

Rock and Roll High School Returns... Sort Of
13 March 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Two young girls start a band and open up a nightclub in town where the local kids can hang out and stay out of trouble, but they encounter opposition from local people who think rock is the devil's music and will corrupt their kids.

Is it wrong that I found it ironic Howie Mandel was accused of allowing close dancing, when it is well known he is terrified of people touching him? In a strange way, this exists in a parallel world to "Rock and Rock High School", with Mary Woronov again as the rock-hating lady, and Dick Miller again as a cop (Officer Paisley!). Even P. J. Soles as an adult Riff Randell?

John Doe, who plays Lucky, recalls Allan Arkush being "everything you'd want in a director. He was one of those people who really got it. He knew how to have fun, how to let people cut loose... and you can feel it." He says the movie took only three days to shoot.
