Movie Reviews

One of the best band DVDs ever.
Michael Spada | Quincy, MA USA | 09/14/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is absolutely incredible. Vinnie did a spectacular job putting it together.
It contains a few songs from one live show in the UK, with interviews with the band in between (interviewed by guitarist/singer Chris's... other personality). Then there is a brief section of three random live videos from various tours with the studio song played over it. THEN there is a full set from a show they did in Rhode Island a few years ago, which is amazing. And to top it off, there's over 20 or 30 live videos from the entire history of the band, from back in the day with them playing "Econolodged" to today, performing "Johnny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts" in front of a massive crowd.
Also is "Avant-Tarde," a hilarious collection of videos from the band just screwing around being awesome.
There is also a Photos Section, some Fueled By Ramen previews, and the music video to "Gainseville Rock City."
The best part about the DVD though... commentary. With the exception of the 20-30 random live videos, everything on this DVD has commentary of some sort. There's band commentary, with Vinnie, Buddy, and Roger; there's also "Mommentary," with saxophonist JR and his adorable mother.

If you couldn't find one reason to buy this DVD in there, you should be shot. If you're a fan of Less Than Jake, or a fan of ska or punk, or a fan of having a good time, or a fan of life, THEN GET THIS DVD.

You will skank in your living room. I can guarantee it."

"This DVD is amazing. You get more than what you pay for. Less Than Jake is known for being one of the best live bands for this reason. Their shows have so much energy and Chris, Roger, and Buddy are hilarious to listen to. The commentary is funny, as is the insane momentary idea. And Avante Tarde (LTJ's home movie) is some of the best bizzare comedy you'll ever see. There's so much to see on the DVD, i've watched it over 7 times since I got it two weeks ago. An awesome buy. Get it. Now."
Less Than Jake Hits Like the Atom Bomb

"Do NOT let the lack of description on the back of the DVD case fool you. This DVD is PACKED with concerts and awesome videos. Can anyone really ask for anything more? I was expecting some bizzarre little 45 minute video, which I would have been MORE THAN HAPPY WITH. INSTEAD, it's incredibly brilliant, very long, and it has everything you can ask for.

If you know Less Than Jake, you already own it.

If you don't, go introduce yourself, dude. They're probably sleeping on a friend's couch right now."
An Awesome DVD

"This DVD is definitely worth the money. It helps to relive some of your awesome memories of watching Less Than Jake live. It's filled with tons of videos from live shows, some very old and some quite new. It's got a lot of funny parts and tons of serious rockin! There are a bunch of extras, such as Avante Tarde, which is just a crazy home video shot by the band. There is also a bunch of photos and the "Gainesville, Rock City" music video. There are a lot of great interviews with members of the band as well. This DVD is the next best thing to seeing Less Than Jake in concert so if you are at all an LTJ fan you need to get this!"
