  • Summary: This rockumentary follows Canadian pop group Barenaked Ladies over 14 days of their U.S. tour. The film provides a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road with the band, as they achieve their first #1 hit single with the song "One Week." (Shooting Gallery)

  1. There's a real joy to this film, a love of the music and an appreciation of the band's eccentric humor.
  2. May not be dispassionate filmmaking, but it is certainly entertaining.
  3. Priestley doesn't exploit the dramatic devices that fell into his lap.
  4. Reviewed by: Sean Means

    This is a band that deserves better.
  5. 50
    A pleasant if overlong road show starring five witty, sweet, humble guys.
  6. The film has no form or function; at best, it's a 90-minute infomercial.
