Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Less a faux documentary than a perversely amusing stab at the music world's harsh realities.

- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Friday, May 13, 2005

Fresh: A raucous, uproarious satire of the dance-club scene.

- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday, May 26, 2005

Rotten: This has writing that could charitably be called inane, and a wholly repulsive star.

- David Noh, Film Journal International, Thursday, June 24, 2010

This one is sinfully ridiculous...its just amazing. Plus the soundtrack is awesome. I love this film because it shows how the human spirit is able to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Just when one hits the very bottom, very hard... to feel useless, and become depressed is truly the easy way out** Paul Kaye is breathtakingly powerful. This is actually based on the life of a real life person**

It's All Gone Pete Tong is a fun, entertaining comedy that boasts an impressive cast and is well directed by Michael Dowse, who previously helmed the Canadian Cult classic Fubar. Taking a cue from Fubar, this film has a mockumentary flavor to it, mixed with memorable humor. The film was surprisingly good considering that Dowse made such an absurd directorial effort with Fubar, and though that film was great, It's All Gone Pete Tong is a more accessible film for film goers because the humor and story is more consistent and more thought out, than Dowse's previous work. I really enjoyed the film, and thought it was a fine feature from Michael Dowse, who I felt greatly matured as a filmmaker. This is a must see for fans of the genre and it definitely has a well constructed storyline, laced with enough humor t5o keep you involved in the film's plot. Sure there are things that could have been done better, but overall this is a solid comedy that evokes mockumentary stylings perfectly. The comedy is great, the acting is terrific and It's All Gone Pete Tong is a well crafted movie that manages to showcase a directors evolution in the medium perfectly. I still feel that Dowse has made his best work with Fubar, but this is nonetheless a worthwhile effort from the director who's managed to craft a very different movie than his first outing. So, if you loved Fubar, you're sure to enjoy this film. Even if you didn't, give this film a shot as it may surprise you at how good it really is. The script is well thought out and the gags are wonderful and overall this is a solid comedy that is very well acted and directed.

I would guess that I am one of 3 people that I know who has seen this. I really don't think anyone would ever see this on their own.
