Did You Know?

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:
Incorrectly regarded as 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 »

Perfect film for Pearl Jam fans!, 12 September 2011
Author: kevin_parks from Canada

I'm a fan club member... and just a huge huge fan of the band. Been a fan for a very long time.

This film is as good as it gets for Pearl Jam fans! I saw this at TIFF. And I can honestly say I was never disappointed about any part of this film.

It captures the essence of the band perfectly with a very good and subtle amount of humour.

I'm going to see this again in theatres.. and oh MY I cannot wait until this is released on Blu-Ray / DVD.

A Must see for any Pearl Jam fan... and any fan of rock music for that matter.

Cheers
