"This film is in the top 50 Music Documentaries of all time at number 20." "I love this film and didn’t want it to end. Whether you’re a music lover in general or a baby boomer harboring affection for the tunes of your time, make a beeline for any theater showing The Wrecking Crew. It’s a gem." – Leonard Maltin

“This captivating cinematic chronicle of one of the richest eras in recent American music history delights from start to finish. Equally impressive, it is so entertaining and enjoyable that, perhaps, only in hindsight will viewers fully appreciate how enlightening a viewing experience it is.” – George Varga, San Diego Union-Tribune
