Dear Jack
The West Coast pop-punk quartet Jack's Mannequin experienced a sad and difficult day in 2005, when frontman Andrew McMahon - then only 23 years old - received a diagnosis from his physician that he had contracted cancer. In response, McMahon began shooting a deeply personal, self-reflexive video diary of the days in between that initial diagnosis (which coincided with the first Jack's Mannequin album, Everything in Transit) and the onset of his treatment; that footage appears in this intimate release. The material also interpolates footage from McMahon's childhood in the 1980s and 1990s, and behind-the-scenes material documenting the production of Everything in Transit. Former Mötley Crue drummer Tommy Lee narrates. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    I'm a huge music guy and always loved the sound of something corporate and actual got to see jacks mannequin in Iowa and it was right after he beat the disease which was absolutely amazing....This documentary sends chills down my spine every time I watch it. its compelling, touching, and has great music in it to boot! I still think that its creepy that all of his songs he wrote for jacks mannequin were written before he was diagnosed with the disease yet all of them or at least most of them had something to do with being sick, in trouble, alone, etc. 5 stars if there were more stars to give it I would ha

    Best Purchase EVER.


    Andrew McMahon is my hero, plain and simple. Even before I got the chance to watch Dear Jack, I knew he had been through a lot and that he was someone who had a great outlook on life. The DVD really shows the ups and downs of Andrew's time in the hospital in an intimate way that I never would have imagined to see. I laughed, I cried (and no I'm not being cheesy). If you love Something Corporate or Jack's Mannequin, definately dish out the money for this, it's worth it.
