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."

"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.

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.

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

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

Less a documentary than a video souvenir playbill.
