Are you going to Burning Man?
16 June 2008 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

Like probably everyone else who ends up seeing this flick, I'm also a pretty big fan of Les. But mostly for his Primus work and his unique personality. I never knew he had a knack for making movies, and low and behold he dishes out Electric Apricot.

Electric Apricot is mockumentary on a jam band whose goal is to make an album and to just get big. To get big their manager wants them to play the Jam festival, Festeroo. I still don't know if it's a fictitious festival or not. Anywho, this is basically the story.

Electric Apricot is a good movie, but for this guy, it didn't really do much. I tend to notice the bad before the good, which is good and bad, but there was a surprisingly tedious, especially during the beginning. I was also disappointed with almost all the beginning cameos. The ones with Seth Green, Matt Stone and that dude from Flight of the Conchords. They all oozed, "We're acting." and I just didn't find it funny. The laugh at my funny-cube-dance bit.....gimme a break. And for the first half of the film I wasn't digging the band members either. Surprisingly, the best actor out of everyone involved was, of course, the most talented person in the film, Les. His acting was neurotic and funny. I won't completely say I disliked the acting by the band, because by the end I was into all the characters and I was enjoying the movie for what it was, a movie about a band with no limits, no fear and no clue. Which is exactly how this movie played out.

Oh, and a shout out to Choda Boy (Orgazmo anyone?). He was by far the most entertaining actor in the film. His scene when he gets in his car, was also the funniest part of the film.

Like I said above, I kinda thought the movie was boring at points. But it does hit a stride, and it wound up be pretty entertaining. And I didn't laugh but only about a handful of times, which kinda stinks. Electric Apricot should have a little cult-following behind it, and fanboys of Les, Jam fans and fans of Spinal Tap should probably get a nice kick out of it. Definitely a nice effort and overall achievement by first time director Les Claypool.
