Quotes

Wizard: We have the knowledge, evil though it be, To twist the mind to any lunacy we wish. Through this Electro-Thought Machine, I'll demonstrate exactly what I mean. We'll take the means of mass communication, use them for commercial exploitation. Create the new 4-part phenomena: 4 simple minds with talent, little or none, And through the latest fad of rock and roll, conduct experiments in mind control! On an unsuspecting public they'll be turned! I'll brainwash them, and they'll brainwash the world!

Huh?
25 December 2007 | by (St. Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

I would have given this a 1, but the most of the Monkees' performances saved it.

What they did with "33 1/3 Revolutions" was done better in "Head". While "33 1/3 Revolutions" had some great music (most notably Peter's keyboard solo and "Listen to the Band"), the story was muddled and less comprehensible. I fast-forwarded through much of this, usually whenever "the wizard" came on and started babbling about whatever. Even the 50's medley was a bit painful to watch.

I understood what they were trying to get at but it just felt like it had "contractual obligation" written all over it, nobody really putting in any effort to make it a better program. Considering the Monkees' history, however, they were probably glad when the entire ordeal was over.
