Surprisingly, Almost Famous was a box office dud when it first came out. But critics praised the film from the get-go, and it didn't take long for it to become something of a cult classic. While it doesn't have the borderline deranged fan following of say, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Almost Famous has managed to cement its status as a beacon for film buffs and music lovers alike.
It's rare for a movie to have the cultural impact and staying power of Almost Famous; you'll still find tributes appearing on countless online media outlets from BuzzFeed to ESPN.
We suppose you could consider some of us diehard Almost Famous fans to be groupies. But Penny Lane would remind you that this description is inaccurate.
