Comic Chris Farley breaks through as a cast member of "Saturday Night Live" and later stars in several iconic big-screen comedies, but behind his over-the-top stage presence lay insecurities deeply tied to his addictive personality.
There were once great adventurers whose lives were spent on and around the mighty Kansas River. They were rulers of their own domain, passers of great knowledge, and mighty outdoorsmen fighting to care for themselves and their community.
Vancouver-based voice artist Ashleigh Ball has been the voice of numerous characters in classic cartoons such as Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Cinderella and more. When Ashleigh was hired to voice Apple Jack and Rainbow Dash for Hasbro's fourth series to use the My Little Pony name - My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic - she had no idea she would become an Internet phenomenon and major celebrity to a worldwide fan-base of grownups. Bronies are united by their belief in the show's philosophy. This documentary gives an inside view of the Pony fan-world, and an intimate look at the courage it takes to just be yourself...even when that means liking a little girls' cartoon.Written by

At one point in the film, Mike Bernstein says that the fandom started on 4chan's "/b/" (random) board. While it is true that the fandom did get its start on 4chan, and started to pick up steam on "/b/", the show first started getting noticed on "/co/" (cartoons and comics). Additionally Mike says that the word "brony" comes from "/b/ + pony", when really, this is not entirely true, either. Contrary to what Mike says, "brony" is widely accepted as having come from "bro + pony". See more »
You know, I grew up in Atlanta, and you know growing up here wasn't the best of paradises. Growing up with that mentality I just took that into my music. As long as I'm alive, as long as this laptop's on, nothing's going to stop me.

Being as I'm a brony myself, I went ahead and had a look at this documentary. Managed to endorse the whole thing and best off, it was never boring. I even saw some familiar faces in there! Would be good for the whole family to watch; just has some thematic material so it would've most likely gotten a PG-rating by the MPAA (as the movie's not been given such a rating).
Like the one Ashleigh Ball said: "As long as My Little Pony exists, there will be Bronies."
