Yes, I actually asked for this DVD for Christmas and received it. DH and I watched it recently, and we were very disappointed. It makes almost everyone in the "documentary" look like an outsider and freak, very fringe and weird, which of course is a very bad reflection on the ukulele itself. The only good thing to come out of it for us was that we discovered the wonderful Janet Klein, who plays old-style 20's and 30's songs. We love her music!

Yes I bought the DVD and felt that it was having a go at us for playing the Uke.

I didn't mind the outsider aspect but it really wasnt my style of music - too punk rock for me. Though with that title I should have expected that. I thought "The Mighty Uke" was a much better documentary.
