Trivia

When asked how he felt about the film, bassist Jeff Ament claimed he felt uncomfortable with how often he used profanity on camera. See more »

Goofs

Eddie Vedder dedicates a performance to Kurt Cobain and the date is given as "April 8th, 1994 - The Day Kurt Died". This may appear as a goof, as in some places it is mentioned that Kurt Cobain died on April 5th 1994.

Both dates are relevant: April 8th is the day Kurt Cobain was discovered dead. The coroner established that he had died on April 5th. See more »

Lacking in so many ways.
13 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The documentary is soft and just a two hour puff piece. You get all access to a band like this and you don't go into the real depths about the band and ask hard questions? What about their wives, girlfriends?

Why didn't Cameron Crowe interview Dave Abbruzzese for example? I think every fan considers him being a big part of the band's history. Eddie Vedder never had a good reason firing him so he's probably still a little embarrassed about it...that's probably the reason he didn't want to talk about it. That's the thing...if you want to make a TRULY great documentary you have to also include the things which are unpleasant for the band members.
