"Hopefully they will soon make a better documentary on Dennis than this.Hopefully when they do so they wont use a camcorder in the most ridiculous settings to record their interviews.(without the kids or ringing phones in the backround,lol)Maybe they will also include some of his original music in it as well.I want so badly to be able to buy a dvd about Dennis Wilson that truly deserves five stars.This does not.Some of these interviews are boring while others are embarrasing and the song by Billy Hinsce at the end sounds like it was written the night before he finished the project.Too much attention is given to his role as a sex symbol,focus on his music more.And I dont just mean the Sunflower classic "Forever".More attention needs to be given to "P.O.B.", and especially the "Bambu" tracks which finally are available.I would not be surprised if some of the people being interviewed here were unaware of the fact that these interviews would actually be used for a "finished documentary".Quite honestly I dont care what John Stamos has to say about Dennis Wilson.Al Jardine and the other members of the wilson family here make a little more sense as they have some memorable stories to tell about a person they actually knew.I hope there is another documentary in the works right now.Anyone who appreciates his music would jump at the chance to buy it.Inluding me.One final comment;One of the people interviewed here says"She misses Dennis's soul".Wow.I don't know about anyone else but when I listen to Dennis Wilson's music,his soul is RIGHT THERE."
Bad Wedding Table Wishes

"Wow, Horrible. I am a huge Dennis Wilson/ Beach Boys fan but PU! This film/home movie is like those horrible wedding videos when the guy walks aroung table to table asking to record your thoughts on the bride and groom. There is 2 minutes of bad quality black and white film of Dennis at the end but nothing more here. I really don't care what all his High school friends thought the first time they saw him, yuk. Believe me, thats 99% of this. It is poorly done with phones ringing in the background, kids talking in the background, poor lighting etc. Like a very bad school project. Somebody please present a better doc. on Dennis then this! Real footage, real interviews , how about a song of his PLEASE!"
Hardly worth watching once

"This video is very poorly done. The sound quality is very poor. There is no background music with the interviews. It is nice to hear stories about Dennis, but this is just so poorly done that its hard to get through. I will not be watching it again anytime soon."
There is a NEW and BETTER Dennis docummentary now available!
