This was by far the favorite documentary I saw at SXSW 2011. I have been into punk music since I was a little kid and I always had a 'cool mom', so I could definitely sympathize with the kiddos in this documentary. Scenes of mohawked, studded, pierced and inked guys taking their kids to the playground, changing diapers... Fat Mike picking out an outfit with his decidedly diva little girl... these are some of the cutest, most heartwarming things you're likely to see out of these controversial and anti-authoritarian musicians. But more than the parenthood is being filmed here; Art from Everclear discusses his own distance and abuse due to his father's absence, and Duane Peters recounts the agonizing death of his teenage son, among other incredibly poignant and honest moments. These are more than just punk idols... they are real men with real problems, facing the trials and tribulations of raising children outside the box. A must-see for anyone who is a fan of any of the bands depicted within. The soundtrack is PHENOMENAL too... they use so much epic music throughout that a soundtrack would be like 3 CDs' worth of material!

Very real, very touching, very funny. It's punk rock, all grown up.... well, mostly :) This film is a great vehicle of sentiment for our youth and hope for our future. Loved every minute of it. Bravo to all the punk rockers who have figured out how to embrace their families without losing what they stand for.

I got this for my birthday. My wife went to see it in the theaters, but I could not attend. She told me I would love it and she was right! You get a sense, even if you were never a full-on punk yourself, of the reality of what these guys are dealing with. I think most guys my age (30-40) had a little bit of a punk attitude (F.U. I will do it because you told me not to) and this shows how hard it can be to reconcile that tendency with the realities of fatherhood.
Caution: this is a movie about punks... there are some 4 letter words... they play the entirety of Family Reunion by blink 182 (look it up if you don't know). So it's not for little kids and maybe not for the elderly. But all in all there is so much that hit home that I have to give it full marks. This will be a movie that is discovered by music fans and fathers for years and years to come! Great job!

I've never been a fan of punk and probably never will be, but I loved this film. It has so much to recommend it. Seeing these guys trying to balance two very different, almost opposite, worlds was fascinating. Also, as I said I've never been a fan of punk, but through this movie I have much better understanding of the music, the people who make it, and the people who are drawn to it. Aside from being very entertaining it was very educational.

I was recommended by a friend to watch. I felt it was a very well done story aboiut us middle aged punk guys. I remeber at 15 thinking i would never live to 30. Now a year off 40 and with 2 sons my outlook has really changed. I still dont trust the estsablishent, i still want revolution, but i also nee to pay a mortgage, car payment and keep food on the table. it is sooo weird to me still.. Being an outcast and having to intergrate into society is hard and this movie shows how har dit realy is. It also shows haw we as parents need to be good parents. I made my 15 year old watch this with me and he now has a greater appreication for what i went through growing up and why i am the way i am with him. One of the best lines of the film (its in the trailer too) is Jim Lindberg sayin (to paraphrae)- i thought i was going to change the world, now maybe i am by raising better kids! I choked up at a few parts in the film, and i highly recommend this film to any parent, not just old punk rockers.

Pre-ordered this and received it yesterday. If you are a die hard Pennywise fan I STRONGLY recommend this along with Jim Lindberg's book Punk Rock Dad. I got a little teary eyed and managed to laugh my face off. You don't have to be a die hard punk rock fan to enjoy it. Other band members are from Rise Against, Rancid, NOFX, Black Flag, Adolescents, Vandals, Blink 182 & even Tony Hawk. Really enjoyed seeing this point of view of their lives. Great soundtrack of course too ;).

I'm going to (badly) paraphrase Jim Lindberg's words at the end of the film to give you a sense of it. "Raising kids better than we got raised and being there for them is the punkest thing of all". I agree with that statement completely! There are moments of laughter in this film- Jim wondering what his neighbors must think when they see him putting tobasco sauce on his dog's poop. Moments of charm- watching Flea and his daughter interact and hearing Art Alexakis talking about 'the switch' that kids can sense that happens in adults once you become a parent. There are heart breaking moments hearing Tony Be (Adolescent) and Duane Peters talk about the loss of a child. There are some weird moments- watching Fat Mike put spray-able butter on toast for his daughter and Rob Chaos talking about... well, I'm not going to give that one up- you'll just have to see for yourself. I can't wait to see the bonus features which look pretty great. Even if you aren't into the music so much, I think there are some profound truths here and also enough funny moments to keep it from getting too bogged down that everybody can find something here that speaks to them. Kudos to the guys who participated and offered such insight and heartfelt feelings, kudos to the filmmakers, and kudos to Jim Lindberg, who's book sparked the idea to make this film! You all get big applause from this punk rock mom. (Now how about a punk rock mom documentary? Just kidding!) ;)
