    A moving portrait of longtime companionship, support, the power of music, and what it means to say goodbye on one's own terms. This film is powerfully Canadian, beautifully emotional, and full of a kind of honest love and affection rarely shown between (straight) men. Of course it's for the fans, but it's absolutely lovely to be able to see how much the band and crew truly appreciate one another.

    I think the reason Chris Tucker is so hilarious during the hotel takeover scene is because he is all of us. We all want to believe we'd be Korben, but we'd be Ruby. 

    Loses points for casual sexism & racism, and some parts remain very cheesy, but the editing, timing, and costumes are still top notch. One of those movies I used to watch every time it was on tv, even after I owned it on DVD.

    People who can't feel at least a little bit happy when watching this movie probably are fun-hating losers who have no souls.

    This is a lovely film, beautifully shot, and expressive both of the cats and of the people who care for them. Even if you don't consider yourself a cat person, I recommend this movie.
