Rock 'n' Roll High School Forever is a comedy, musical movie that was released in 1991. It is directed by Deborah Brock and stars Corey Feldman, Larry Linville, and Mary Woronov. The movie is a sequel to the 1979 hit movie, "Rock 'n' Roll High School," and is set in the once-rebellious Vince Lombardi High School. The movie opens with the new principal, Evelyn Togar (Mary Woronov) taking over the school after the retirement of Principal McGree (Kicking first Principal Togar's butt). Togar, whose mantra is "Knowledge is the enemy of rock and roll," believes that music is destroying the academic future of students in the school. She bans music and enforces a strict dress code. The students of Vince Lombardi High School become increasingly frustrated with Togar's rules, no music means no fun, and they start looking for a way to overthrow her. They decide to organize a massive rock concert at the school to protest against the tyranny of the new principal.

The main character of the movie is Jesse Davis (Corey Feldman), a former student at Vince Lombardi High School who now works as a pizza delivery boy. He is the only one who knows how to organize a successful concert, and so he steps up to help the students. Jesse is a fun-loving, charming character who still has a deep love for music. His skills come in handy as he helps the students organize the concert, and teaches them how to make rock and roll music.

Under Jesse's guidance, the students find their rhythm and start to rebel against the system. Joey Ramone plays himself in a cameo role, and his character helps the students with their plan to overthrow Principal Togar. The students' rebellion against Principal Togar escalates and she becomes increasingly threatened by the concert's potential success. She tries to stop the concert and punishes the students who are caught organizing it. However, the students don't give up and continue to fight for their right to rock and roll music.

One of the memorable characters in the film is Sergeant Hansen (Larry Linville), an army officer who is hired by Principal Togar to help maintain discipline in the school. He is initially portrayed as a stern and tough army officer, but it is later revealed that he has a soft spot for rock and roll music. Hansen becomes conflicted as he helps Principal Togar maintain law and order, but still wants to help the students. He eventually sides with the students and becomes an ally in their fight against the principal.

The climax of the movie is the rock concert, where the students finally get to showcase their talents. It is a high-energy, eye-catching, and crowd-pleasing event that features some fantastic rock and roll music. The performances are choreographed with great skill, capturing the essence of the rebellious and youthful 1980s spirit. The music is classic rock and roll, punk, metal, and everything in between, with excellent remixes that update the original versions of the iconic songs.

The movie has plenty of humour, both subtle and direct, and the soundtrack is excellent. It captures the essence of the rock and roll movement of the '80s, and it is easy to see why it became such a classic cult film. The story is engaging, and the characters are well-developed, with each one playing an essential role in the fight against the tyranny of Principal Togar.

In conclusion, Rock 'n' Roll High School Forever is a timeless classic that captures the essence of the 1980s music scene. The performances are superb, and the soundtrack is exceptional. It is a must-see for anyone who loves rock and roll music or is a fan of classic '80s cinema. The movie is perfect for both older audiences who grew up in the rock and roll era, and younger audiences who are just learning about the history of the genre. It is a reminder of the power of music and how it can bring people together to rebel against authority and celebrate freedom.
