This was an interesting movie – basically a biography of the show that had over 1500 episodes (something I learned watching the movie-I had no idea it had that many).
There were a lot of things I didn’t know about the show that I did watch as a kid. The issue with this movie is it had so many slow moments that I struggled to stay awake. I did manage not to fall asleep and found it interesting. I think people over 40 will enjoy this but I would wait until DVD/Blue Ray to see it.
They did a good job explaining where many of the main characters originated from. I also was not aware that there was any controversary with the show – you learn about that in the show.
Because the movie seemed to never end and the only other documentary that I have to compare to recently was RBG which was really good, I’m only giving this a 4. Again, if one is over 40 and curious enough about the show and it’s history, I think you’d enjoy it. I don’t believe anybody under 40 will like this.
