Synopsis by Mark Deming
The flashiest of the glam-inspired "hair metal" bands to rise from the Los Angeles club scene in the '80s, Poison became one of the most popular hard rock groups in America with their trashy visual style, hooky songs, brash personalities, and "sworn to fun, loyal to none" attitude. Poison: Nothing but a Good Time! Unauthorized is a documentary which features interviews with the band members and their associates as well as vintage newsreel footage to tell the story of these big-haired bad boys. Produced without the participation of the band, Poison: Nothing but a Good Time! Unauthorized features no music or performances from the group Poison.
