A fascinating look at the frustrations and hardships of show business, featuring some fine comic moments from Conan and his crew. The editing was a bit sloppy at times, and - I personally would like to have seen more about the movement of Conan's fans uniting in support online. But despite its flaws, a solid documentary that should especially be required viewing for those interested in the entertainment industry.
More revealing than it needed to be. Not as revealing as we'd like it to be. The performance footage focuses more on music than comedy. The movie certainly supports it's contention that Conan O'Brien can't stop - and that he's happiest and most fulfilled in front of an audience.
okay, Conan's on tour, so what?
it's the pinnacle of bad filmmaking if you have a fantastic subject & an intriguing (background) story, but can't get to the gist of it. it's unclear what actually drives Conan to go on such a laborious tour and why he keeps going and "can't stop". yes, there are shallow backstage moments, but during the whole docu you learn nothing about the person Conan O'Brien (and his motivation)
I appreciate the lack of whitewashing. It was funny, sure but they didn't shy away from showing Conan getting annoyed/angry with the rigors of touring and the demands therein. It wasn't perfect, sure but what documentary really is? It was a good chronicle of some of what goes into entertaining the masses and how much some entertainers can get attached to that.
This was a good exploration of what fuel's O'Brien's bitterness towards NBC and Leno. I felt it was really honest and did not try to just beef up or advertise Conan's new show. This was a very good documentary fueled by humor, wit, and reality.
