Edgier and darker than Spinal Tap, this mockumentary follows the reunion tour of the titular punk band. Narrator Bruce McDonald trails the group from one venue to the next, adding insightful commentary about each band member along the way.

By no means a perfect film, but a seething and edgy mockumentary that rises way above its premise. Under its surface is a film about the facade and the violence of masculinity, and the ways in which we fail to deal with our wasted ambition and our broken relationships.
Bruce's best. This films sums up perfectly the punk-rock revival during the 90s. It makes you feel a part of the band and of the film crew. Hilarious and thoughtful at the same time. Remember the mantra: "Touring, touring: it's never boring...".
