* FetishRetardant: Some of the sexy scenes with Cherie slip into this since she ''is'' a fifteen-year-old girl being exploited for {{Fanservice}} - and Dakota Fanning was the same age during filming.



* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Most critics' reactions to Kristen Stewart in the {{biopic}}, especially considering how she did all of her own singing and learned how to play the guitar. Even the [[Music/JoanJett lady herself]] was fooled when listening to a recording of Stewart, thinking she was just listing to one of her old tapes.

** Not that Dakota Fanning's acting talents were ever in doubt - but she had been doing mostly children's movies and critics called this a step in the right direction to establishing herself as an adult actress.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some reviewers say they would have preferred to see the film focus more on Joan than Cherie.
* UncertainAudience: Not the film itself, which was received moderately well by critics. But the studio didn't know whether to market it towards the now aged fans of the band from their heyday - or else the teenage fans of the two leads.

** Arguably [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in the film. The rest of the band resent the endless publicity Cherie receives while she herself grows to hate it and it's part of [[spoiler: her decision to leave the band]].

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning kiss in the movie, guess what the main thing they're interviewed about is? If it's not that then it's Dakota performing on stage in Cherie's iconic lingerie.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: When another band behaves like jerks to Joan and Cherie, Joan gets revenge by [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment pissing on their guitars]]...then slipping in it and tripping over her own pants when they almost catch her in the act.

* {{Squick}}: The very first shot we get in the movie is a drop of blood hitting the sidewalk. As the camera pans up, we see it's Cherie having her period...classy.
