This is an awesome movie!
12 July 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I am a die hard Beach Boys fan and I thought the movie rocked! Don't tell abc but I video taped it. Biggest flaw: not enough Carl- everybody I know agrees- although Ryan Northcott did a wonderful job playing the part. Fred Weller was the perfect Brian. The casting was great! Great movie
