  1. A unintentionally funny fanzine-flavored documentary.

    Forget "The Revenge of the Nerds." This is the real thing.

    These live performances and classic music videos drive home the point that part of the Giants' longevity flows from the fact that they can't be explained, only experienced.

    A modest amusement.

    Despite Schnack's half-hearted attempt to divide the film into chapters, his film is too unstructured to hold the interest of non-fans who might have appreciated a somewhat less hagiographic approach.
  6. Not only does it feel like an exclusive party at which there is definitely no room for the uninitiated, its waves of idolization barely leave room for the band itself. Good as they are, They Might Be Giants deserve a better film.
  7. Will likely test the patience of all but the most devoted fans.

    This is a very interesting documentary whether you love the band or have a slight interest. The way it was made gave it an interesting spin.
