A Great Laugh Out Loud Movie
12 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All the characters in this movie are hilarious! If you ever get a chance to see this movie I highly recommend it. National Lampoon has taken a giant leap in the right direction. Les Claypool is the comedic God of this generation.

Les takes you on a journey through the jam band underground. You get to know and love all the characters, as if they were your best friends. The Electric Apricot grows from playing coffee shops to playing Festeroo! You get to watch them as they record their first record, argue, fight, and get therapy. From tree houses to yoga, this movie entertains you in ways you never thought possible.
