This movie is hilarious; following the antics of Kut U Up and mostly blink-182, it gives you an inside look on each band and has extensive interviews with most bands featured in the DVD. This movie, coupled with the Urethra Chronicles series, are what made me fall in love with blink-182, because everyone on this movie seems so cool as people. It's great for fans of the bands, and highly recommended for a good laugh.
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.
