Just finished watching the film and wanted to come here and see what people thought of it.
I really really enjoyed it. They did a great job of capturing everything that happened to produce the show, explained the story, and just did a really awesome job of showcasing what it was all about. Loved seeing Green Day's involvement. Favorite parts were that 1983 clip of 11 year old Billie Joe singing songs. There were more parts that got me all excited, like seeing Billie Joe when he first start practicing for St. Jimmy, and i absolutely loved seeing their reactions to hearing "Last Night On Earth" for the first time, I almost got all teary eyed. As I watched those scenes from opening night on Broadway i couldn't stop thinking "holy shit, that's the night I met him. Look there's his little suit and fluffy hair and I actually talked to him."
There were lots of little things that were really great to see again, to re-live, and hear some of the story about how it came together.
