Edgeplay: A film about The Runaways is a 2004 documentary that was produced and directed by former Runaways bassist Victory Tischler-Blue. Edgeplay chronicles the history of the all-teenage-girl rock band The Runaways, whose members included future rock stars Lita Ford and Joan Jett. The movie premiered as part of filmmaker Allison Anders' 2004 "Don't Knock the Rock Film and Music Festival".

Kim Fowley, the band's original manager, originally asked for $10,000 appearance fee in order to appear in the film, but eventually agreed to appear for free if he could sing his answers to questions, with a guitarist accompanying him. Vicki Blue agreed and this is how his appearance was originally shot. However, he then informed her that each of his answers was a song that would require a separate license. Fowley was shooting a segment for VH1 at about that time, so Blue sent her questions to the VH1 folks, who agreed to let her use their footage.

Conspicuously absent from the movie was Joan Jett, who refused to participate in interviews or allow any of her music to be used, and as Jett wrote or co-wrote most of the Runaways music, very few of the band's songs were able to be used on the soundtrack, which had to feature musical contributions mostly performed by Lita Ford or Suzi Quatro.

In a 2006 interview with the Montreal Mirror, Joan Jett said:

"To me, the Runaways is my baby, so you have to understand my perspective. If there’s gonna be a Runaways movie, it should be about what we accomplished, the tours we did, the bands we played with, the people we inspired. I’m not gonna participate in a Jerry Springer fest, bottom line. With any band, you’re gonna have interpersonal conflicts, but if that’s what they thought the Runaways were about—about breaking a bass or putting on make-up—well, it’s very disappointing. Very, very disappointing. I wanted nothing to do with it because that’s not the band I was in. [The film] was a totally different take on what went down."
Shortly after the movie was released, Sandy West, the band's drummer was diagnosed with cancer. She died on October 21, 2006.
