Sometimes you just can't fight the funk; as much as you might resist the film's more maudlin scenes, not succumbing to the band's signature tune, "Head Wiggle," is impossible.

It traffics in broad feeling and fluff, but despite the familiarity of its themes, manages to not turn cloying.

A genuinely moving and powerful doc about one of the great funk bands ever, that just happened to be a high school band.
