This documentary by rookie director Doug Hamilton plays more like a featurette on an American Idiot DVD than a stand-alone film.

Less a documentary than a video souvenir playbill.

If Broadway shows had DVD featurettes, the unexceptional documentary "Broadway Idiot" would be perfect for one.

"Broadway Idiot" has the controlled quality of something created to showcase the work and its participants only in the best possible light.

The Dissolve

Broadway Idiot [is] a spirited look at bringing American Idiot to the stage that lacks a strong narrative to propel it forward.

In all, the film features too many interviews with folks saying the same things (summary: "We didn't know this was going to work") and too much behind-the-scenes material, but not enough music.

Fans of Green Day might find it harder to get the same rush out of the band's music after watching this extended, self-congratulatory PR plug for the 2009 stage adaptation of their 2004 album, "American Idiot."

There are some emotionally stunning and candid moments in this documentary, and they unfold without seeming forced or staged.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

A tuneful, revealing, but superficial and undramatic documentary account of taking Green Day's "American Idiot" to Broadway.

Vibrant & colorful. The documentary emphasizes the positive and tends to gloss over any backstage tensions. Still, it is a fine testament to a great modern musical.

A film about both [creative] challenges and choices... Broadway Idiot does a good job of tapping into the source material's thick veins of feeling.

Hamilton can't go too far wrong because American Idiot is such a killer collection of songs.

"Broadway Idiot" is entertaining enough. Certainly if you're a Green Day fan, it's something close to essential. But it never goes too deeply into anything.

As a chronicle of how one rock star slowly fell victim to the Broadway bug, it's kind of amusing.

Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay the film is to say this: I really want to see American Idiot on stage now.

For theater geeks, a key interest will be getting rare access to witness how a complex production comes together.

There's no doubt you'll leave the movie either wishing you'd seen the show, or glad you did.

A fast-paced, thoroughly entertaining if hardly trenchant show biz documentary ...
