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 »

Quotes

Mike McCready: [about Andrew Wood, singer of Mother Love Bone] He would do something like go to The Central Tavern when there was 25 people there. He play it like it was The Colosseum. "To all you people in the back!" And there's like... the guy at the door.

Great Rockumentary
22 October 2011 | by dhsvincentSee all my reviews

I have been a fan on Pearl Jam for years. I was 18 when the Seattle scene broke, so Pearl Jam became the soundtrack of my young adult years.

I was a bit leery of this movie, as it could have really have turned me off the band depending on how it all went down. I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole movie. The crowd singing the song "Better Man", brought tears to my eyes. You really get an idea of how fast the band became huge, and the problems they had keeping their "art" rather than their business. I have gained a greater appreciation for this rock band, and it just made me a bigger fan

Simply put, Pearl Jam "10" one of the greatest rock records ever, and Pearl jam "20" one of the greatest rock movies ever
