Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) und Ben (Adam Pally) führen eine Ehe, deren streitlose Tage endgültig vorbei sind. Über jede Kleinigkeit kriegen sich die beiden in die Wolle, was teils auch der jeweils unsicheren Jobsituation geschuldet ist. Die Kreativköpfe wollen nicht so recht erwachsen werden und hangeln sich mehr schlecht als recht durchs Leben - geprägt von geplatzten Träumen. Während Uber-Fahrerin Anna über einen gecancelten Buchdeal hinwegkommen muss, trauert Ben der gescheiterten Musikerkarriere hinterher. Als sie sich auf einer Geburtstagsparty - konfrontiert mit all den Kindern ihrer Freunde - ins Jenseits kiffen, kommt schließlich der möglicherweise rettende Einfall: Was als High-Geklimper auf Spielzeuginstrumenten beginnt, entwickelt sich bald zu einer Garagenband mit Nachbar Dave (Fred Armisen) am Schlagzeug. Das Ziel: Die Streitereien künftig über Songs austragen.

Writer and director Cameron Crowe's experiences as a teenage rock journalist (he was a regular contributor to Rolling Stone while still in high school) inspired this coming-of-age story about a 15-year-old boy hitting the road with an up-and-coming rock band in the early 1970s. Elaine Miller (Frances McDormand) is a bright, loving, but strict single parent whose distrust of rock music and fears about drug use have helped to drive a wedge between herself and her two children, Anita (Zooey Deschanel) and William (Patrick Fugit). Anita rebels by dropping out of school and becoming a stewardess, but William makes something of his love of rock & roll by writing album reviews for a local underground newspaper. William's work attracts the attention of Lester Bangs (Philip Seymour Hoffman), editor of renegade rock magazine Creem, who takes William under his wing and gives him his first professional writing assignment ラ covering a Black Sabbath concert. While William is unable to score an interview with the headliners, the opening act, Stillwater, are more than happy to chat with a reporter, even if he's still too young to drive, and William's piece on the group in Creem gains him a new admirer in Ben Fong-Torres (Terry Chen), an editor at Rolling Stone. Torres offers William an assignment for a 3,000-word cover story on Stillwater, and over the objections of his mother (whose parting words are "Don't use drugs!"), and after some stern advice from Bangs (who says under no circumstances should he become friends with a band he's covering), Williams joins Stillwater on tour, where he becomes friendly with guitarist Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup) and singer Jeff Bebe (Jason Lee). William also becomes enamored of Penny Lane (Kate Hudson), a groupie traveling with the band who is no older than William, but is deeply involved with Russell. Lester Bangs and Ben Fong-Torres, incidentally, were real-life rock writers Crowe worked with closely during his days as a journalist. Almost Famous' original score was composed by Nancy Wilson of Heart (who is also Crowe's wife).
