Motley Crue’s Netflix Movie ‘The Dirt’

Pamela Anderson existed, John Corabi could speak, they had a singer before Vince Neil and other things that "The Dirt" gets wrong. Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee; Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx; Daniel Webber as Vince Neil; Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars in 'The Dirt'. Fact-checking a movie about Motley Crue is a ridiculous task, especially a film that says right off the bat it is merely “based” on a true story. It’s also a film that breaks the fourth wall and tells the audience that things didn’t happen quite as they’re being presented. The whole thing is also based on a book that bassist Nikki Sixx now claims has at least one story; in which he writes that he “pretty much” raped a woman was “possibly greatly embellished or made up.” He also claimed he was on drugs during the interviews with writer Neil Strauss and doesn’t remember much at that time.
