With highlights as good as The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” and the Boss’ “My City of Ruins,” resistance is ultimately futile.

Though the doc plays sincerity by the book, shoehorning in a ton of Jersey Shore cleanup, you get a real feeling for the crazy quilt of tristate community, bonded by crisis and "Baba O'Riley."

Sandler's uproarious off-color parody of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah injects the film with an inspired note of raucous comedy that undercuts any pretensions to solemnity.

Never goes beyond the level of a really good bonus feature on a special-edition concert CD.
