Dramatization looks at the tumultuous relationship that existed between rock group The Beach Boy's Brian and Dennis Wilson and their father, Murry. It also examines their struggles with drugs and alcohol.
This biopic chronicles the continuing saga of the Beach Boys from 1961 to 1985. Mainly focuses on the Beach Boys resident wildman Dennis Wilson and in a slightly less capacity big brother Brian Wilson. Written by

The film implies that under Murry Wilson's direction, the Beach Boys recorded "Barbara Ann" in a standard session in 1963 or 1964. In reality, the song was recorded "unplugged" in September 1965 after Dean Torrence (of Jan and Dean fame) visited the session for the Beach Boys' Party! album and suggested that they record it. By that time, Murry Wilson had long since been fired as the Beach Boys' manager. See more »
Does anyone know the name of the song being performed by the band on stage when the Beach Boys arrived for their first live performance, a band was playing a surfer instrumental on stage at the beginning of the scene. I would love to know the title of the song or the artist being portrayed. I hope all the members of the Beach Boys know that their influence and contributions were historical and will never be matched. I am glad to be a member of the 70s Generation. The movie shouldn't have focused almost entirely on the bad elements of the band. Dennis was the one spotlighted for trouble, but if you think about it, it was the actions of Dennis that inspired most of Brian's wonderful collection of landmark hits.
