Mindless Behavior in New York
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to attend the New York movie premiere of “All Around the World”, a documentary following the lives of the members of Mindless Behavior. The group consist of Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray, and Roc Royal. Me… along with hundreds of young girls (and a few boys, heeyyyyy) got to watch this film. I used #mysmartercommerce to document and recap this experience through my website and other Social Networks. In complete disclosure… although I am familiar with the group Mindless Behavior, I can’t say that I know much about them. This post is being written from a non biased standpoint.
One thing that stood out for me is that I have attended a few movie premieres in my day and I was so very impressed by the fact that the boys not only made an appearance; they stayed in the movie theater and watched the film with us. They were so very personable and engaging. I had the opportunity to spend time with the boys before they entered the theater to introduce the film. I walked upon them huddled in a group with their manager praying before making their appearance. Afterwards, it was really important to them to take pictures… not for vanity, but to make each moment count by capturing the quiet moments to remain humble. The significance of this is when no one is looking, they are still well bred, present, and genuinely nice boys. I hope that these characteristics never leave them as they maneuver through the pits of the entertainment industry. I have come across some rude, self serving celebrities and Mindless Behavior is the total opposite of that.
Now on to the movie… hmmm “All around the World“, more like “All Around California”, lollll. A lot of the filming was done in my hometown which is also where most of the members of Mindless Behavior are from. This film talks about how they got started, what their day to day process is, insight from their parents, and the important role that their fans play in their overall success.

If you are in love with any of the members of Mindless Behavior, you will certainly be in for a treat with this movie as the boys periodically workout and practice without their shirts. Judging by the screams from the young ladies in attendance, this will certainly help to draw large box office success for this film. This movie wasn’t just about performing; we also saw the groups commitment to community service and playing it forward. The movie showed the boys visiting various charities, and paying special attention to children with special needs throughout the tour. They also paid homage to groups who did it before them… The Jackson 5. I won’t give the movie away, but for someone who didn’t walk into this movie premiere being an über fan, I left with a better understanding of who they are as Mindless Behavior the group, and as individuals. I was not bored at any point during this movie…. but then again it could have been the screams from the girls in the audience that kept me alert, lolll. From a parents standpoint…. if you are taking your young daughter (or son… heeyyyyy lolll) to see this movie you will not be bored. If anything, you will be at ease knowing that your child chose these wholesome young men over other ratchet artist in the industry.
GO SEE THIS MOVIE… it opens March 15th!!!!
