In 'Rock of Ages,' small town girl Sherrie Christian (Hough) arrives in L.A. in 1987 and starts working as a waitress at The Bourbon Room. There, she meets handsome busboy Drew Boley (Diego Boneta). Sherrie dreams of becoming an actress, and Drew wants to be a rock star -- but for now, they're just working at the club every night. When Mayor Mike Whitmore (Bryan Cranston) announces that he wants to shut down The Bourbon Room and clean up the rest of the Sunset Strip, with help from his wife, Patricia (Catherine Zeta-Jones), the club's owner, Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin) and manager, Lonny Barnett (Russell Brand), hatch a plan: They want famed rock singer Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), the lead singer of Arsenal, to play Arsenal's final show at The Bourbon Room, in hopes of raising enough money to save the club.

Tom Cruise stars in 'Rock of Ages' as Stacee Jaxx, a rock star who definitely lives the life, right down to his pet monkey, Hey Man. Because really, all rock music gods need pet monkeys...
Dennis Dupree: "Stacee, you made it!"
Stacee Jaxx: "Hey man..."
Dennis Dupree: "Hey man!"
Stacee Jaxx (points to monkey): "No, this is Hey Man."
Dennis Dupree (looks at monkey): "Hey Man" (monkey screeches, Dennis quickly walks away)
Venus Club owner Justice Charlier (Mary J. Blige), explains the ropes of the strip club to Sherrie, and then she bursts into song, singing "Anyway You Want It" (by Journey).
Justice (to Sherrie): "That stage is a pedestal, and when you're up there, you're untouchable."
Threw Up in My Pants
Dennis and Lonny (Russell Brand), The Bourbon Room's manager, are understandably nervous about whether they'll be able to save the club. So much so that Dennis' bodily functions rage out of control (TMI, definitely TMI).
Dennis Dupree: "Oh my God, I just threw up."
Lonny Barnett: "Where?"
Dennis Dupree: "In my pants."
Patricia Whitmore (Catherine Zeta-Jones), wants nothing more than to see The Bourbon Room shut down for good. Patricia's husband, LA Mayor Mike Whitmore, is leading a campaign to shutter the club (and any others like it). To Patricia, Stacee Jaxx represents all that is bad and unholy in this world.
Patricia Whitmore: "This man spews out three things: Sex, hateful music, and...sex!"
