This is an insightful and heartfelt look at what it's like to be a fan of something different from the normal things guys like. As a Brony I must say that the filmmakers definitely got it right at what we as fans go through. There is some balancing issues with juggling all the Bronies we follow in the film, but that's really the only thing. If you are a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic or just want to see what the fandom is all about please check this one out.

Man, I bet that bronies really don't care if people judge their opinions, because they sound confident and love it so much! Yes, I am a brony too, and I am proud to be. :)

I'm only 11 years old and I am a brony and so are lots of my friends we would watch it like 3 times a day

honestly i don't know why we are stereotyped. we are normal gentlemen like everyone else we just like different things than other men, we are all the same on the inside, why do we need to be judged on the outside?

I expected this to be a documentary similar to following Star Trekers, but it was quite different. This is mainly a movie about principally younger men (age 12-35) who have decided to reject the male gender stereotypes of aggression, competition, and violence, and instead find "male bonding" through sensitivity, positivity, empathy, creativity and caring for others.

Yes, it is a "phenomenon" and evolved from a cartoon developed for young girls, but the values it portrays are positive and show an aspect of manhood which, given a safe environment, can be expressed openly and honestly.

This movie gave me hope for a new male awareness, and a new role model for father figures. While there are women who are also involved in this movement, the real pleasant surprises are the men.

This documentary is well filmed, paced and edited, and keeps the viewer engaged.

To men who find this sort of thing threatening, I say, watch it, if you dare!
