Not just another boy band

As a longtime fan, this documentary was a must-see for me. And needless to say, I was not disappointed. Show 'Em What You're Made Of offers a very honest look at the roller-coaster life of a boy band whose longevity and success defied all expectations. No truth is sugar-coated in this film as the boys-turned-men give us a glimpse into their childhoods, their rise to superstardom and, ultimately, their fall and return into the spotlight. From AJ's drug and alcohol abuse to Brian's struggle with his singing voice and the band's conflicts with their first manager Lou Pearlman, the BSB hold nothing back as they recount their 20 year-long journey as one of the most successful recording groups of all time.

Tears are shed, hurtful words are exchanged during arguments, but ultimately, the bond between all the guys is stronger than ever. They're a group, but above all, they're brothers. And that's what makes the Backstreet Boys so special.

Real and Honest Look at the Music Industry

Fan of 90s pop music or not, if you are a fan of music in general, this documentary is a must-watch. Behind the fancy dance moves and carefully crafted images we are given in the media, there are real people behind them. People that came from different backgrounds, personal experiences, tragedies, and successes.

For the Backstreet Boys, the road to fame was pre-Internet, hard work for years on the road. The documentary shows just how much blood, sweat, and tears went into building up a fan base and how much harder it was without Facebook and Twitter! They eventually experience grand success (over 130 million albums sold), but a glitch comes when they find out their financial backer was really a con-man, and they were betrayed personally and professionally.

The movie also takes viewers on a road trip with the guys where they show their childhood homes and talk about what led them to join the group...and how the group has affected them these past 22 years. It also shows the guys planning their first album without a major record label behind them. It fascinating to watch songs being created from scratch and how you write lyrics and find harmonies.

The movie really takes viewers through very intimate moments. There are screaming matches, tears, physical ailments, struggles with substance abuse...nothing is off-limits. Even long-time fans will learn things about their favorite band they've never known.

I cannot recommend this movie enough, for both fans of the band or just fans of music in general. There is a dark-side to fame, but if you can keep your head on straight and focus on the right things, you can find long lasting success. The Backstreet Boys are a rare breed in the music industry, lasting 22 years to date! Not many bands in any genre can say that.

Well worth the wait

Interesting, raw, vulnerable. This is not like your typical documentary we see so many artists releasing these days. It is intense. We see the Boys at their best and worst here, and it's impressive how much they elected to share with the world, knowing how exposed to criticism it would make them. This is a true testament to their respect for and faith in their fans. The movie is an insane roller coaster ride of emotions, from joy to regret to explosive anger to immense sorrow. Some parts made me laugh, others made me cry, and still others made me cringe. My feelings were all over the map, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was enlightening to see where each Boy grew up, how they experienced fame individually, and where it's brought each of them today. My only regret is that the movie wasn't longer, but I very much look forward to seeing the extra footage when they (hopefully) release the DVD in stores eventually. Here's to another 20 years! Great job, Backstreet Boys!
