Trivia

Contains the only recorded collaboration between Neil Young and Devo, as they perform "Hey Hey My My (Out The Blue Into The Black)". The song is sung by Mark Mothersbaugh as his "Booji Boy" character,and changes a few lyrics in typical Devo fashion. (i.e. "Johhny Rotten" becomes "Johnny Spud"). See more »

Quotes

Booji Boy: I don't know what's going on in the world these days. It seems that everybody's just got everything turned around. People don't seem to care about their fellow man. They're all going for that big ice-cream cone in the sky! They haven't figured out what happens when your eyes get bigger then your belly. Like an ostrich who eats his pizza with his head stuck in the sand. If they can't see it, it isn't there. And you know, it really *does* take a worried man!

New wavers and hippies get together and make weird movie.
11 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why don't they make movies like this any more? Sure it's a stupid movie. Sure, it's pointless too. But damn, if it isn't cool. Best part is forced perspective set and Devo deconstructing "My My Hey Hey!" Plus, look for Neil doing a one of a kind "shovel dance!"
