So the Hidden Levels Drive You NUTS...........

"Before tossing this one in the trash, know that there is an easier way to access the extras. Delightful and funny documentary of a very decent bar band. Crowe's voice isn't Pavorotti, but it is passable, especially on songs meant to rock. Not cracked up with his balladeering, but there is an interesting rap type track of a little song called "Nowhere".Now to those harder than hell to get to levels. DVDs like Texas have titles and chapters. Most DVD player remotes come with a display button. Hit the display button and navigate the titles starting with 1 then 2 and so forth through 20. It is a very easy way to get around this DVD without going through all those inane instructions. I really don't know who's idea the levels were, but they must have been in some sort of dream state."
Watching this DVD will give you a full blown stress attack

"I personally love Russell Crowe and 30 Odd Foot of Grunts. My excitment in receiving this DVD was soon a great disapointment. With the DVD come four pages of instructions on how to navigate throughout the DVD to see all of the features. Some of the insutructions were very detailed including looking for hidden codes in the credits section of the four page booklet. If you were unable to successfully navigate to a certain section, you were denied access. I did not spend almost $30.00 on a DVD where I have to work so hard to figure out how to watch the DVD. I am VERY disappointed with this product, and I urge others not to buy it. My husband and I screwed around with this ridiculous DVD for almost four hours and still could not access all of the features. The features are all encrypted and encoded, and a huge pain in the [rear]. Save your money. And Russell, please forgive me for slamming this piece of garbage."
Texas - TOFOG

"A cleverly made, multi-layered dvd that will leave you happy, perplexed, frustrated, and enthralled. Once one gets past the awe of seeing the Grunts unbared you will want to start drilling down in the dvd to see the hidden gems.
The narrator, Reverand Billy Dean Cochran, does a great job filling in the blanks. Russell, while an integral part of the group, is not the main focus and that is what makes this dvd so refreshing in that it isn't just an homage to Russell. Other members of TOFOG give some impromtu talks with the camera but does Stew Kirwan really exist? LOL
I was fortunate to see the Grunts in Chicago, 2001. Thank God I didn't have to stand in line in the Texas heat for 5 hours. The Grunts are an experience that needs to be had. If you can't make a concert, this is almost as good.

"If you are a Russell Crowe fan you must see this side of him amd hear TOFOG music. A real slice of life video. Very sophisticated levels and depths to this DVD. You never know what you will find next."
