    PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 23, 2000 -- So, what's it like when you sell your movie at Sundance? Like this: You drive through the streets whooping, yelling, cranking up the stereo and tossing black Adidas ski hats to the unwashed (and un-picked-up) masses. The groovesters of "Groove" are, yes, grooving. A day after Sony Pictures Classic snapped up the low-budget slice-of-rave-life flick, the film's players were partying in the streets here this afternoon. And to hear one of its stars tell it -- this w

Synopsis
A rockumentary that follows Barenaked Ladies' band members Steven Page, Ed Robertson, Tyler Stewart, Jim Creeggan and Kevin Hearn over 14 days of their U.S. tour in support of their 1998 "Stunt" album and it's #1 hit "One Week." The documentary combines concert footage of the irreverent group, backstage antics, stories of late-night tour bus nude dancing and a sprinkling of celebrity interviews; and it manages to delve into some of the more serious challenges of what this ten-year-old Canadian band went through to find an audience in the U.S. and have their music taken seriously, while retaining a sense of humor and perspective.
