    This movie is the story history of Factory Records which created many great bands such as Joy Division/New Order and The Happy Mondays. It's kind of like "This is Spinal Tap" except that was fiction, this one is true. And that makes the funny parts in 24 hour party people even more funny because it's true!!! If you are a fan of the Britpop, Madchester or punk scenes then you should see this movie to get a sense of the scenes that music originated from. Expand

  1. Extravagant and funny it is, and also quite dark at times.
  2. An insider nostalgia trip for graying art punks. It could have been called ''When We Were Cool,'' and it's finally so cool that it freezes you out.

    Loud, hilarious, and enormously entertaining, 24 Hour Party People makes you want to toss current FM radio out on its pre-fab, corporate-sponsored backside. And not a moment too soon.
