Motley Crue is one of the most notorious rock and roll bands known for three simple things, sex, drugs and rock and roll. The band consisting of 4 members, lead singer Vince Neil, drummer Tommy Lee, guitarist Mick Mars and bassist Nikki Sixx had their own Netflix original biopic released on Friday called “The Dirt.” I can honestly say this movie is one of a kind and if you decide to watch it, you’ll understand why within the first few minutes of the movie. But before you say to yourself, “Hey this might be a good movie to watch with my kids.” My response to that is simple, NO NO NO! Go into this movie understanding that it’s about what i said the band is known for, sex, drugs and rock and roll.
The movie shows how the band came together, rose to stardom and handled massive controversey. You’ll see how Tommy Lee dealt with his marriage issues with his ex-wife Heather Locklear, Nikki Sixx’s substance abuse, Mick Mars dealing with a spinal disease and Vince Neil accidently killing his friend while driving intoxicated and how his daughter died from cancer. The Dirt will keep you captivited from start to finish because the lives of Motley Crue was just one huge rollercoaster ride.
