Default Drum movies?

Hey what's up fellow drummers! I was just wondering if you guys know any movies in pop culture that feature drums/drummers. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is drumline, with Nick Cannon. I know they are making a a Keith moon bio film for 2009 I believe, which Mike Myers is supposed to be in.

Anyways I know there's got to be more movies that feature drummers than that so help me out! just list any movies you have seen

I actually enjoyed that movie. I thought it was neat.

Now, there is that one scene in "Vice Versa" where Judge Reinhold plays the drums and jams with the store clerk and guitar customer. He actually looks like he knows what he is doing somewhat too. Man, how sad am I for remembering that movie? I'm aging myself there.

It's not a movie, but the "Church Lady" (Dany Carvey) on SNL is hilarious.

How do you equate Drumline to a gangsta movie...
Why cause it has a hip-hop flava to it...

SMH @ this silly statement...

In a twisted way...I find this movie inspiring. The kid ties the entire band together...but he was just into playing and going for the ride. Loved him pulling the covers off his kit in the beginning and sneaking down stairs to play to his jazz records.

Great, explosive black dude playing jazz in a club in the LA part of the movie.

Rockstar, but the movie is focused around a frontman
