Movie Reviews

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong steals this movie!
tovangar | Los Angeles, CA United States | 02/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Buy this DVD even if you aren't a fan of Green Day, blink, Jimmy Eats World or Kut-U-Up (although I guarantee that you will be a Green Day fan AFTER viewing it) because it is the funniest thing you will ever see. This movie could have been a mess, but Oscar-worthy editing and a great sound track saved the day. It's actually a good film, deserving of recognition. We watch it at least once a week and sometimes twice a day.

My fave bits are:

-Green Day on stage (Mike Dirnt is wonderfully loose-limbed),

-a shirtless (and extensively tattooed) Billie Joe Armstrong rubbing cake in Mike's hair,

-Billie Joe spanking or kissing a variety of guys,

-Billie swinging from the chandelier of a two-story hotel room until it rips out of the ceiling and later limping down the hotel hallway dragging the chandelier like some demented party favor until he runs into Mike, who collapses in laughter,

-Billie branding a somewhat willing Chris Cote from Kut-U-Up ("How could I say no to the King of Punk?") on the bum with a pool bridge (heated with cigarette lighters) after convincingly telling him, "Just put a little Neosporin on it; it'll be fine, I swear!",

-Billie proudly showing his charmingly horrified wife, Adrienne, the damage to Chris' ass.

The manic joy in Billie's eyes throughout these adventures is a thing of beauty.

My only regret is that Tre Cool isn't on camera more. He's shown with his then wife, who appears to have a pretty tight rein on him, although near the end he does manage to get off a quick champagne toast, "Here's to ass f*cking!"

"Riding in Vans with Boys" is money well spent."

"I was introduced to this DVD almost a year ago. Since, I have watched it about once a week. Regardless of whether or not you like Blink 182's "Pile-of-Music" or rock out Green Day, or even the stylin's of Kut-U-up this DVD is hilarious. The fact that all this happened unscripted makes it even better. The Soundtrack rules too, including music from YOVEE and Jimmy Eats World."
The members of Kut U Up are insane.

"If you stuck an IV pumping straight Vodka into the blood of MTV's Wild Boyz and made them into a punk band and sent them on tour with Blink 182 and Green Day...and made it into a DVD documentary, you hilarious, crazy, drunken mess of a DVD that you will want to watch over and over. Riding in Vans with Boys is a must see DVD for any punk fan!!!"
Fuck redicuous
