In this mild-mannered documentary about Barenaked Ladies, which follows the band on tour in 1998 with the album Stunt, musicians alternately sit on the toilet and discuss techniques for masturbating on the tour bus, then gently chastise fans and viewers for being interested. The movie includes extensive performance footage but never drags, and it isn’t exposé or self-mockery but an unusually idealistic rendering of innocence amid fame and fortune. A sequence about the band’s dissatisfaction with the production of a music video seems dishier than the rest of the movie, which emphasizes the band members’ friendliness with one another and their fans. Director Jason Priestley uses postproduction tricks as rarely as he appears on camera, and his subtle avoidance of the band members’ histories and personal lives supports a surprisingly persuasive thesis—that the reality of this band is the same as its public image. Whatever secrets the musicians may be keeping, we’ve been tacitly urged to examine our reasons for wanting to know them. 90 min.
