Contains the only recorded collaboration between Neil Young and Devo, as they perform "Hey Hey My My (Out The Blue Into The Black)". The song is sung by Mark Mothersbaugh as his "Booji Boy" character,and changes a few lyrics in typical Devo fashion. (i.e. "Johhny Rotten" becomes "Johnny Spud"). See more »
This movie is nearly worthless. By all means, this is only for big fans of Neil Young and/or Devo. Not to say it is painful to watch - at times its combination of hokey special effects, screwball comedy and pointless plot is somewhat interesting. And the scene where Devo's mascot Booji Boy runs through a searing version of "Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)" with Young on guitar and the rest of Devo behind him is as surreal as it is amazing. The rest of the film is free of meaning and entertainment. This is clearly a movie the cast enjoyed making, but they didn't stop to think if anyone would enjoy watching it. The best you can say is that it is unique. After seeing it I learned the film was only made possible because Neil Young fronted the budget. That makes it all more clear. Worse than Paul McCartney's "Give My Regards to Broadstreet"? Perhaps.
