Tense and Vulnerable, This is a Different Band Than What We Hear on the LPs
A straight documentary, trailing Tenacious D during the fall and winter of 2006 as they tour to support The Pick of Destiny. It's selfish to expect them to be "on" at all times, but given the happy-go-lucky buddy vibe they play up in both albums, that's what I was anticipating. And, in a few shining moments (particularly at the outset), it delivers. When the tour drags on, though, and grim box office returns for their feature film start to roll in, the mood turns sour and annoyances blossom into grudges. It's neither particularly funny nor especially revealing, and the audio on the frequent cuts to their live performances is surprisingly weak. The real draw is the random "who's going to turn up next" series of celebrity cameos, as the band seems too spent and overburdened to carry the show backstage all by themselves.
