  • 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. 75
    While most band documentaries wade through sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, this one has no sex, no drugs, and the kind of rock 'n' roll that reminds one of their fans of "something I'd hear at a dorm party."
  2. May not be dispassionate filmmaking, but it is certainly entertaining.
  3. 60
    Includes extensive performance footage but never drags, and it isn't exposé or self-mockery.
  4. These guys are very normal off stage, making them easy to like and not very exciting to watch.
  5. Reviewed by: Steve Simels

    A reasonably entertaining way to kill an hour and a half.
  6. The film has no form or function; at best, it's a 90-minute infomercial.
