This in-depth look at the Brothers Gibb corrects a number of misconceptions about them (for one, they’re not native Aussies, but emigre Brits) as it traces their journey from street-corner harmonizers to Beatlesque pop group to their most famous incarnation as disco-era superstars riding Saturday Night Fever‘s coattails. Once things move beyond the ’70s, though, Keppel Road: The Life and Music of the Bee Gees begins to feel like an extended commercial for their current comeback. The Bee Gees may be stayin’ alive, but viewers will likely have some trouble stayin’ awake through this 92-minute video’s second half. C+
