Joan Jett returns to the days of loving rock’n’roll

By on

Rocker Joan Jett recently traded in her Blackheart to
star in lighthearted indie teen comedy Endless Bummer.

The movie follows a group of teenagers from Ventura as they chase down a stolen surfboard. It’s set in 1984, the year of Jett’s album Glorious Results of a Misspent
Youth
, and the plot sounds so simple and silly it just might result in something glorious itself —
as long as they don’t try to take it too seriously. Producer Steven Siebert describes the film as “a genuine story of a pivotal day for a group of young
Ventura surfers” and fellow producer Kevin Lyman says, “its relevance is timeless and has no boundaries.”

Ummm, okay. I get that the best comedies actually have deeper meaning (think of the anthropological masterpiece
Dazed and Confused),
but I was sold when I read that the soundtrack will include ’80s hits covered by current rockers, including Jett.

Even if this movie doesn’t “Change the World,”
it’ll hopefully be chock full of fun-in-the-sun nostalgia. If you live in Ventura, wander on down to the beach — maybe you’ll catch the cast in action!
