    Is Gene Simmons' School of Rock Playing in the States yet?

    Because it is funny as hell here in the UK. The whole thing takes place in a Christian boarding school where Gene has to turn 12 classical trained kids that hate rock into a band that will open for Motorhead. The kids all wear gowns and are so freakin straight laced, and enters the demon.

    I hate what Gene has become, but he is good in this show just because he is honest. When debating the school over whether he should be there or not, instead of comming up with a grand argument for rock, he just stands up and says, "I have personally made over $100,000,000 being a rockstar, who does not want that?" When the kids say that there is more to life than money he responds that everyone wants to be Gene Simmons, or something like that.

    Then another kid brings up his sex life by saying it is apalling that he aledgedly slept with over 4000 women, he slamms his fist into the table and yells, "How dare you say that I aledgedly slept with 4000 women, I am offended that you use the word alledgedly!"

    If he were playing it straight, it would be horrible, but he is making no excuses for being a greedy bastard. It is fun, although I hate to admit it.

    Even better is the next day they invite him to sing in chapel the to ease the tension from the debate and he performs "God Gave Rock and Roll To You" as if it were a spiritual song instead of a tune from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, and they bought it!

    It is also playing here in Montreal. Original audio with french subtitles. I never saw it though, but saw the commercials.

    I've caught it a few times, channel surfing. I don't "seek it out"... but if I come across it, I'll watch it. It actually IS pretty funny. Those kids stand RIGHT up to him. I love it! He doesn't sugar-coat anything either. I admit it... it's funny!

    UGH, This show sucks. Gene wants to make people think KISS did everything in the world. Cure Polio? Yep, Ace did that!
    Invent the steam Locomotive? Peter did it in his garage!

    Plus, they use the old "make them look skinny" lens trick whenever they show Gene, he looks like what the old westerns on TV used to look like when they smooshed it to show on regular tv.

    Gotta disagree with you bro....Gene would NEVER give Ace or Peter any credit for anything! It has to be either him or Paul!
