Goofs

Aiwas remarks that he "felt like Hitler at Waterloo". It was Napoleon Bonaparte who was defeated on that battlefield in Belgium, not Adolf Hitler, who wasn't even born yet. This is intended by the filmmakers as a joke. See more »

I Wish Les Claypool Were My Father...
12 June 2008 | by sana-20See all my reviews

This movie is amazing. Simply put it is the greatest thing I've watched in last 21 years. Given, I am only 21 years old. That's just how amazing it is. I find it hard to believe that wasn't released in theaters. I'd imagine it would have made so much money. Everything about the film is fantastic. The only thing I could think of that would have made it better would have been more cameos by musicians/interviews with scene kids outside the Warfield, etc. This is really a great thing Les has done here. I pray he continues his efforts. He's a really, really funny guy.

I find it sad that you're reading this instead of watching the movie.

It's F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C.
