Take That For the Record
26 October 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Very nicely done documentary although the emphasis is too much on Robbie Williams. Yes, he is the big mega star today, but back then they were all equally huge. The documentary shows some scary, funny, entertaining footage. The solo interviews are perhaps a bit dragging for none-fans, except the Howard Donald interview, his story is dipped in anecdotes and great memories.

The Documentary shows us the story of Take That from the beginning in the gay scene in Manchester, touring to schools and doing under 18 shows, the first video Do What U Like with the boys covered in jelly (Nice Howard quote: "I was cleaning jelly out of me arsehole for the next two years"), the first entry in the charts, the crazy, hysterical fans outside their houses, fan interviews, security interviews who must have feared for the lives of the boys at some point, backstage material (Howard: "Suck my sausage!" Robbie: "Suck my ****" Mark:"Stop filming us Philip you dirty b@st@rd"), Robbie being stoned or boozed up or both, the major shows, Rob leaving the band, the tour that had to go on, the split and what are the boys doing today.

A must have for all Take That fans, and a must see for all people that say boybands are rubbish.
