The indie romantic comedy, “The Sweet Life”, will soon be out on DVD for your home entertainment! The film, from director Rocco Simonelli (“The Substitute”) and Roy Frumkes (“Street Trash,” and producer of “The Substitute”) features punk rocker Joan Jett in her romantic comedy debut. Jett also performs the title song “The Sweet Life” with her band, the Blackhearts. The DVD will be available July 12 for the price of $19.95.

Here’s the official synopsis of the film:

Sensitive but unsuccessful New York magazine columnist Michael (Jay Lorinz, “King of New York,” “Frankenhooker”) looks on while his self-confident and shallow brother Frankie catch all the women and make all the money, and reevaluates his own relationship with his biker-chick roommate, Sherry (Joan Jett). Through a twist of fate, Michael finds himself vying with Frankie for tough bartender Lila’s affections, and the results are riotously funny and wholly touching.
