  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. Reviewed by: Steve Hochman

    Priestley doesn't exploit the dramatic devices that fell into his lap.

    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.
