Sunset Strip is a 1985 movie set in Los Angeles, California. The film follows the lives of a group of young people trying to make it on the Sunset Strip music scene. At the center of the story is Rick (played by Tom Eplin), a struggling musician who dreams of making it big. Rick is a talented singer and guitarist who spends most of his days playing at local clubs and bars, hoping to catch the attention of a music producer or talent scout. He is joined by his girlfriend, Tammy (played by Cheri Cameron Newell), who works as a waitress at a nearby diner.

Despite his talent, Rick's career is going nowhere, and he becomes increasingly frustrated and disillusioned with the music industry. He turns to drugs and alcohol to cope with his feelings of failure, and his relationship with Tammy suffers as a result.

Meanwhile, the film introduces us to other characters on the Sunset Strip, including Stevie (played by Danny Williams), a sleazy club owner who exploits young musicians for his own gain. There is also Scarlet (played by Jillian Kesner), a stripper who dreams of becoming an actress, and Johnny (played by Michael Parks), a washed-up musician who has lost all hope of ever becoming successful.

As the film progresses, the lives of these characters interconnect as they struggle to find happiness and success in a town that can be cruel and unforgiving. They share in each other's dreams and disappointments, finding solace in their shared love of music and the Sunset Strip scene.

Overall, Sunset Strip is a powerful and emotional film that explores the darker side of the music industry. It shows us the struggles and sacrifices that young artists are willing to make in order to pursue their dreams, as well as the harsh realities of a world where success is never guaranteed. The film is beautifully shot and features an excellent soundtrack of classic rock and roll hits. It is a must-see for anyone who loves music, or anyone who has ever dared to dream of making it big.

Sunset Strip is a 1985 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 22 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8.
