Critic Reviews

  1. There's a real joy to this film, a love of the music and an appreciation of the band's eccentric humor.
  2. 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."
  3. 75
    A welcome respite from the high-volume ugliness of rock extravaganza.
  4. May not be dispassionate filmmaking, but it is certainly entertaining.
  5. Makes for a playfully enthralling hour and a half.
  6. Provide more than you ever wanted to know about the reigning kings of geekpop, but he (Priestly) does so without giving you much reason to care.
  7. 63
    Insights run more along the lines of which ''Sesame Street'' character each of them identifies with.
  8. There's something oddly endearing about the Barenaked Ladies. And by the end of the movie, you begin to see just what it is that inspires such intense fan loyalty.
