This movie is best viewed on DVD., 12 October 2002
Author: Ivanhoe

As a movie, <i>Daydream Believers</i> seemed rather hastily put together, especially in terms of the script.&nbsp; This is, perhaps, not the most informative or accurate bit you'll ever see about the Monkees.&nbsp; However, the movie succeeds in telling a good story and championing the Monkees for their talent as entertainers <i>and</i> as musicians, as well as explaining with clarity some of the things about the Monkees that are commonly misunderstood.&nbsp; It receives bonus points for very good casting, and for prominently featuring &#0147;All of Your Toys,&#0148; one of the Monkees&#0146; great &#0147;lost&#0148; songs (and among the first the Monkees recorded together as a real band).

Where the movie is good, the DVD is great&#0151;not for any spectacular audio/video presentation, but in the extras.&nbsp; Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork each have their own commentary tracks, on which they discuss various points on Monkee history from their own points-of-view.&nbsp; These are very revealing and informative, and bless the movie for providing the platform for the Monkees to comment on the types of things that never come up in interviews.&nbsp; But if you want interviews, the DVD also delivers rather lengthy ones by the three participating Monkees.&nbsp; New Concorde should be commended for getting Monkee participation on this disc.&nbsp; It transformed a somewhat inconsequential (albeit entertaining) movie into something really worthwhile.
