Oh god, I totally HAVE to watch this now. Most friends warn against it, yet a couple of others liked it — and one even *loved* it (though he could be trolling... it wouldn't be the first time).
A film that swings so wildly between the two opinions is something I simply must see, even though I may live to regret it.
It was great to have interviews with most of the cast, but the lack of access to footage from the show and generally poor production quality let this down a little. But as a "made by fans, for fans" kind of affair, I imagine the budget just wasn't there for that kind of stuff. It feels a lot more like an extended DVD extra than a film in itself... It was a good way to ramp up excitement for the new series, but if you're a fan of the show and have seen the DVD & extras then there may not be a lot that's new for you here.
The most entertaining part of this was the selection of celebrities/comedians/experts that talked between sections, and the banter between Arnett and Bateman. As for the serious meat of the documentary, it felt like each section went on a little longer than it needed to and didn't really provide enough depth to prove satisfying.
