It's a hearty, thoughtful, smartly assembled, vaguely complete documentary about a rock band that, even by the standards of out-there musical acts, seemed out there both in the mid-1980s and even now.

It's a movie about what it's like to almost make it in the music business, but not really, not quite. It's about coming close and watching it slip away.

To hear the soaring craziness of Fishbone's "Sunless Saturday" is to wonder how such musical inspiration could possibly miss.

It's a much more interesting story than your usual Behind the Music arc.

What makes this better than the usual Behind the Music-style doc is the frankness of its subjects and the fun way the filmmakers intersperse Fat Albert-style animation to tell their story.

Even as a hagiography, though, it's pretty interesting.

Anderson and Metzler collect dozens of great bits of rehearsal and performance footage as well as intimate footage between Moore and his family.

"Everyday Sunshine" presents a raw lesson in how artistry and success often make incompatible partners.

Everyday Sunshine is an uplifting entry that rises to its task rather than letting the music do all the talking.

[It] isn't the happiest movie about a band you'll ever see, but it is one of the more entertaining, and thanks to directors Lev Anderson and Christ Metzler, one of the most original.

The pinnacle comes when Kendall rejoins them for an impromptu gig, stirring hope for a return to glory.

Hold on to your hats for a heartwarming look into the private lives and public outrage of Fishbone, the critical mass that refuses to melt down.

Gets the job done, and admirably, blending interviews, testimonials, concert footage and, interestingly, animation to build a full and engaging portrait of Fishbone.

It seems telling just how many other musicians were willing to participate in the documentary to attest to the outfit's influence.

Everyday Sunshine doesn't do the band the disservice of falling at their feet in worship, like too many recent films about legendary musicians

The fun and energy of those performances show the promise that was lost - and the pleasure that's still in the music.

Terrific, deeply affecting rock documentary that captures the unlikely assemblage of a bunch of L.A. black guys playing the kind of music no one had ever really heard before.

It all comes together for a rollicking chronicle of verve and nerve.

Seizes that tumultuous spirit, that sheer history of Fishbone, rolling it into a tremendous, informative documentary that avoids tracking footprints, instead exposing the raw nerve sensitivity within this legendary band.
