A recently orphaned girl (Diane Lane) and her cousin (Laura Dern) and sister (Marin Kanter) start a punk rock band, touring with two established metal and punk rock bands. A cynical commentary on teen angst and rampant consumerism.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous StainsDirected byLou Adler
Although I feel like I should love this movie because it's about a super rad riot grrrl punk band whose message is "We don't put out!", the movie was just really terrible. Yeah the girls looked awesome and the entire message of the movie might have been strong but the movie was such a bore.
Unremarkable youth rebellion picture is notable mostly for the presence of young actors who would later make it big, including Diane Lane, Ray Winstone, and Laura Dern. Bland and instantly forgettable as it plods through a cliched, predictable story.
