Ratings & Reviews

  • It falls short of its tie-dye target.

  • A crafty, sometimes craven, but hardly worshipful snapshot of an unlikely candidate for biggest rock act on earth.

  • Fans will love this quick flick by director Todd Phillips, but it better serves as an introduction for the uninitiated.
