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

    November 7, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A fast-paced, thoroughly entertaining if hardly trenchant show biz documentary ...

    October 17, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A pleasant if predictable documentary ...

    October 17, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • "Broadway Idiot" has the controlled quality of something created to showcase the work and its participants only in the best possible light.

  • 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."

    October 17, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "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.

  • Feeling like a making-of featurette that somehow got stretched out to 80 minutes, Broadway Idiot has moments that are truly compelling, but they're few and far between, and the filler will be pretty boring to anyone who isn't already a fan...

  • Despite it ultimately being a glorified behind-the-scenes feature, it's easy to get excited and hope the American Idiot traveling company has your city on its tour.

Audience Reviews for Broadway Idiot

  • Jan 18, 2016
    The biggest revelation is that Billie Joe Armstrong was not always a punk, but a theater kid singing show tunes in family home movies. This doc explores a little of what was going through Green Day's head when they originally made the American Idiot album released in 2004. Naturally, this doc focuses on translating that album to the Broadway stage. The theater production team is shown working on a story to tie the music together, the arrangements, the choreography, and the stage design, then Green Day is brought in to grant their approval. Eventually Billie Joe decides he wants in on the action. He joins the Broadway cast for a short time as his alter ego St. Jimmy, a character that he says is his dark side. A hard rocking behind-the-scenes streaming flick.
