It's an exhilarating ride, full of insight, humour and contrition.

I came away from it wishing the Beastie Boys were my friends, and feeling glad they still care for each other.

This has obviously been made for fans, but even if you're unfamiliar with the Beastie Boys, it's impossible not to be entertained by these irrepressible showmen.

It's nostalgic yet hip, fresh and informative. But it is built for fans only...

"'What would Yauch do?' is always on our minds," Ad-Rock and Mike D admit, and that's about when I started tearing up. And stayed weepy throughout!

Some cursing, drinking in inspiring music docu.

Diamond and Horovitz tell the Beastie Boys' extraordinary story with just the right amount of self-deprecating humour.

This is funny and ultimately very touching - just make sure you stay for the end credits and some star cameos.

... the film is joyful, funny, life-affirming, and funky as hell. The Beasties have all these great memories about the band-and we do, too.

If Beastie Boys Story is flawed, at least it comes from the heart with all of the love and respect to the end.

The story of Beastie Boys is so remarkable and so rare, that no matter how it's awkwardly it's delivered, it is worth the watch.

What Beastie Boys Story lacks in detail, it makes up for in pathos, a word you probably wouldn't have associated with the guys who wrote "Cooky Puss."
April 29, 2020
Beastie Boys Story is a fun exploration of the band's history through Ad-Roc and Mike D's eyes, but it may not be as comprehensive as some hoped.
