"If you're an old-school kind of fan of FOB, then you might not like this DVD very much. There's too much of the element of really putting on a show in an egotistical way, especially on Pete's part. All the shots of the audience are of the airhead fans who only like FOB because "they're hot" and wear I "

"The concert footage includes a pretty impressive lineup of songs spanning most of Fall Out Boy's career. I was disappointed to not see "Calm Before the Storm" or any other songs originally from the Evening Out with Your Girlfriend album during the Phoenix show. A lot of the audience footage is of little girls who are A: new to the band, B: only like them because of MTV and girl's magazine publicity, or C: they think the band is "cute". In my opinion, the camera does not show a BROAD enough spectrum of FOB fans that regularly attend their venues; the emokids, scene kids, punk fans, average joes, etc...
The extra dvd content is good overall. It includes some, but NOT ALL of FOB's music videos over the years. If you are an old school fan and were really hoping to see music videos from the Take This to Your Grave Album, then you may be let down. All dvd videos included are only from the From Under the Cork Tree and Infinity on High albums (The two newest and weakest albums in my opinion)
The behind the scenes dvd footage is a mixed bag of rehersals, living quarter tours and "wanna-be Jackass" type stunts by Pete and some roadie named "Dirty". Some highlights are the Killer whale sweater, Patrick's living quarters, paying "Dirty" if he makes it 24 hours without talking, and Pete Wentz straightening "Dirty's" hair.
Overall the dvd is action-packed, full of humor and is a great gift for most FOB fans. If you have been a huge fan since the early days of Fall Out Boy or thought their first two albums were the strongest, you may be feeling a little left out. Unfortuantely the dvd focuses on the new, more poppy sounding songs and not as much on the older, more emo/punk sounding material. Because I am an old-school FOB fan, I give this dvd 4 out of 5 stars.
