I liked the documentary. I like how real it is. I just wish it showed more of Deryck recording vocals than just where he recorded them. There was a lot of work put into the album but at the same time there was also a sense of fun which helped the environment for the band to make the recording process a bit easier, as Deryck mentioned, they did what they wanted, when they wanted. I really enjoyed watching it. There were some great highlights in it aswell, such as Deryck throwing himself through a door. Such a great band. If someone were to ask me why I love this band so much, I'd show them this documentary.

This is like a too long episode of Entourage. All it's about is how much they drank, broke shit, and fucked chicks. I wish I could get the 20 minutes of my life I just wasted back...............

This was the making of their newest album Screaming Bloody Murder, they gave us just that. A lot of it was drinking because Deryck partied everynight once the rest of the band left since their part with the album was done. Deryck didn't want to be alone in this house they recorded in so he was in the studio all day, then at night he partied and had friends over. Don't see anything wrong with that? If you watch their studio updates, this is how they normally are. They drink and break things. That's Sum 41 for ya. There could of been more footage of the recording process included, I'll admit that, but most of it was what was shown. It's real and comepletly accurate.

Pretty much how I felt, even though they've been documenting this stuff since the Introduction to Destruction DVD. I guess I just hoping for something with more substance. This documentary could have been so much more and that scene where he breaks the door and brags about banging the two girls was pretty unnecessary. I'm sure no one cares what I think of him, but there's nothing cool about that, especially when you're a 30 year old man.

Derycks making it out like he's a genius with writing songs lol. He was, back in 2001 but apparently he lost it. Anyone can write bad songs. Thats what happens when you dont get a producer.

Haha. I was going to ask if this was worth checking out, then I remembered it was free and I should just shut up.

If you like watching a guy adjusting poorly to a divorce, then it's a good watch.

When did Deryck get so pretentious and high and mighty about his song writing? I use to love Sum 41, lately, they've disappointed.

Maybe you should, especially now that the new albums out! They're better than ever, imo.
That they did! The band had to pay even out of their own pockets for 2 songs because the label said the album was done but to the band, it clearly wasn't. They've put a lot of effort into this album, that's forsure!
