If you are a real The Donnas fan, you already watched that movie. Now, if you wonder why there is a special about a movie on a The Donnas Fansite, there is a real good reason for that; beside that this is a great movie, also The Donnas covered "Strutter", one of KISS' most famous songs for this movie, and let me tell you, it is a great cover.
