Who'd've thunk it, a music documentary that doesn't actually feature the band? Most people would be put off by this description, I guess though that most people who like The Replacements aren't 'most people.' I'm a 50 year old that thinks 'Bastards Of Young' is one of the best songs about growing up I've ever heard, who's heart is torn apart when listening to 'Unsatisfied' and is still trying to learn to play 'Answering Machine' on the guitar. This last month or two I've been sending Facebook messages to all my buddies who I know will love this movie, they all still have a fire in their hearts and are still as enthusiastic about music as they were in their early adulthood. Those of us across the pond who loved this band can now feel a little closer to them. I know there were a number of bands in the UK around the late 80's who really loved The Replacements: Mega City Four, The Senseless Things, Midway Still and my band The Seers. There were countless others. My band got to tour with The Ramones, Iggy Pop and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, so we were all part of the same world. This dvd is like a handshake across the water for me. I've never been to the US or seen The Replacements, but I did get the chance to see Hüsker Dü, The Moving Targets, Bullet LaVolta, The Pixies and REM. Two bands I'd loved to've seen would definitely have been The Replacements and Uncle Tupelo. I'm really hoping that one day someone does a UT documentary. Hey, maybe if we all think hard enough that'll happen too?

The words this doc ends with perfectly sum up The Replacements. Don't be put off by the fact there's no Replacements music in this, or that none of the band feature. For fans of the band, it's two hours spent in the company of some like-minded people (including Norm from Cheers!) shooting the breeze about what "The Mats" meant to them. It'll reinforce your belief that this was possibly the best band ever. If only the rest of the world wasn't so cloth-eared. And the lack of music throughout just means you'll be itching to get the records on. If you're not already a fan, watch it anyway - this is what bands used to mean to people. Then buy "Let it be".

HASH(0x9b445b88) out of 5 stars Great film about my favorite band but I only have one problem. 20 Sept. 2012
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I will tell you the one problem I had with the film at the end of this review. I will start by saying that this has become my favorite documentary ever!! Now, unlike everyone who appeared in this film and unlike most viewers or fans, I wasn't alive when The Replacements were in their prime. I'm only in my early 20s and I discovered the band back in 2008 from a friend of mine. They have become my favorite band, to the point of obsession.

I won't go on about how there is no music or interviews from the band in the film. I will just say that this was the best way to tell the band's story. The Replacements were sort of that band that you herd about, you knew the name but you didn't know who they were completely. They seemed to be this legend that people had told. It was something that a lot of people had talked about but somewhere in the place of rock history, they were left out when The Beatles, The Velvet Underground or R.E.M. are mentioned. You just knew from what you had heard that they were an important band and you were either curious to listen to their songs or just simply not interested. But my point is, you knew or heard something about them and that is their legacy. The band that no one knows of was simply the greatest band of the 80s or the pioneers of Alternatvie rock.

Was the band that great? I am here to say that yes, they were!! Maybe the only important band to come out of the 80s underground. This film is amazing!! So much insight, humor and heart are in these interviews and it shows what it means to have passion for anything. You don't have to be a fan, even if you're not a Mats fan, you know what it means to have something touch you, make an impact and shape you into the person that you are today. That you're not alone and there is something out there for anyone. Gorman Bechard did a great job with these interviews and got the best out of these fans, fellow musicians or collaborators with The Replacements. This is storytelling and it completely covers a legend that has been told before but never at this scale. This was a little band from Minneapolis that with no record sales, no commercial success has become an important part of rock music and what it is today.

I will end this review by saying the one thing that I didn't like about this film. It's that there is very little praise for the Tim record that The Mats did. Everyone talks about how great Let It Be or Pleased To Meet Me is but hardly any love for Tim. I know it's a difference of opinion but I consider this the best record the band ever did and also, the greatest rock album in history. Still, this is a great film. One that I hope will lead others to discover these songs. Believe me, once you've herd "Left Of The Dial", you will never be the same.

I thought I would dig it because I really like The Replacements. Even knowing that they had no association. Even with Greg Norton and Grant Hart providing commentary and the tiny Husker Du section... I'd rather just listen to the Replacements than hear people talk about them for 2 and a half hours.

How could a film about one of Americas most raucous bands be boring? Let's start with the fact that there's no Replacements or their music in this thing. Some have called this an amazing choice. I call it idiotic. You REALLY have to want to watch hours of people just talking about them to enjoy this. I'd prefer THEM telling us about heir careers. I'd have thought they could have licensed a few of The Mats better songs. They thought there was no need for music in a film about music. Figure that one out.

HASH(0x9b3a4f60) out of 5 stars An open letter to Gorman Bechard 15 Jan. 2013
By Deerlick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Gorman - I've seen how much you have/are defending this movie and as a Replacements fan, I guess I understand a bit why you made it...but I feel that maybe you aren't completely understanding why people are disappointed. I agree that too many reviews focus on the lack of music, but I don't think that you should focus too much on that being the only flaw that viewers are finding here.

I knew about the movie and the whole fan-funding, grass-roots movement to get it made before I saw it. I knew it didn't feature any music or interviews with the band members before I saw it. I heard early bad reviews before I saw it. I eventually broke down and saw it in Austin, TX when you presented it at The Alamo. The group of about 10 friends that I ended up with universally felt it was a waste of time. Even going in with really low expectations, we were disappointed.

Personally, my biggest problem is how pretentious most everyone comes off. It's like a bunch of fans trying to out-hipster each other. After reading Jim Walsh's excellent "All Over But The Shouting," I was thinking you might actually be able to capture some of that magic in a documentary...and that is where the movie fails for me. Maybe growing up in the Midwest (Wisconsin), seeing a ton of Replacements shows (from Stink through the final shows at Summerfest & Grant Park)...and hearing much more interesting vignettes from almost any friend or drunk at the corner bar makes the stories in your film seem trite.

Unfortunately, I don't really have much in the way of remedy or constructive criticism to offer - It's too late anyway. Maybe less industry/wannabe camera time. Maybe a few more "Joe Average" stories. Maybe more of a "friends telling each other stories" vibe. Maybe some interviews with lesser-known bands talking about how The Replacements influenced them would have helped - I'm sure some of those bands would donate some original music or throw in a live clip to break up the monotony without losing the point of the movie. Maybe when the GBV version is made, you can atone for the missteps in this one.

I'm on my way to The Alamo to see The Archers "What Did You Expect?" movie tonight. I'm really hoping you got that one right and with the cooperation of the band, I have no doubt that you did.

HASH(0x9b018144) out of 5 stars color me impressed 12 Aug. 2015
By f.w. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I read that this Replacements documentary was devoid of photos,films, and audio of the band, I thought, what a wasted opportunity, it must be incredibly boring! Boy was I wrong! Everyone interviewed in this love letter to Minneapolis's finest is as fanatically and devotedly attached to the history and memories of the Mats past as they are to their own. Gorman Bechard has the documentarian's knack of knowing exactly what to bring out in his subjects and what to leave out of the film as he so expertly did in his Grant Hart doc. Every Everything. It's fantastic to see old faces like Jim DeRogatis , Robert Christgau, and references to the greatly lamented Creem magazine, which like one of the interviewees in the film, I myself first read about this band who wore green shoes, orange slacks, and drank like champions in 1987. In fact because of these morons I probably partied away 5 to 10 years of my future, but it may have been worth it!
