Think You've Lost Your Idealism?
13 July 2000 | by bill-461See all my reviews

If you ever stood up and tried to make your voice stand for something, this movie will bring you back to a time when you cared. It's anything but preachy. It's funny and sad and a true celebration of the power American artists once wielded. When the group bursts into Wimoweh your heart will go up into your larynx. This is truly a movie that can change peoples lives.
