It was a hoot
22 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Just saw this film last night, and it was really good. Easily one of the funniest and most entertaining documentaries I've seen in a long time. The interviews with the bands were interesting and funny. Ozzy was the highlight, and he was great. Whether you're a fan or not, this film was just tremendously entertaining. Sort of like "Spinal Tap" in real life.
