Critic Reviews for Satisfaction

All Critics (5)

The screenplay, by Charles Purpura, is dull and cliche-ridden.

I realize that having first seen Satisfaction as an impressionable girl is the reason I'm still talking about it thirty years later. It's one of my biggest nostalgia movies, but I do still genuinely enjoy it.

The only satisfaction I got out of the bad movie Satisfaction was that I was no worse for wear having to endure such awful tunes.

Justine Bateman keeps on singing throughout this freakishly banal flick, and each time it just gets funnier.

Moves to a good beat, swimming in fine talent

Audience Reviews for Satisfaction


A girl power type movie about a female rock band. It's a pretty good drama/comedy, but it could have gone further than it did drama wise, and it could be funnier comedy wise.

A hilarious film of the 80's! Loved Trini A., Justine B., and Julia R.
