| Enjoyable fluff.
I quite liked this movie, despite the fact that it tried so hard to be likable. The plot is silly, the music very funny, and the 'mockumentary style' always a delight. My only quibble is that instead of getting real actors to play it truthfully (a la the classic "Spinal Tap") the director seems to have chosen comics, and let them go for the laughs, and in the process, they lose believability. Even the real actors that are in it are hamming it up, trying to get us to be amused. That's when it doesn't ring true, and the whole 'mockumentary' becomes an MTV sketch, which is unfortunate. But you can't fault them for having fun I suppose, I just wanted them to really believe what they were doing so that I could have had as much fun as the actors did. But it is undeniably fun!
