The Try Guys, four mega-viral internet celebrities willing to try anything, reveal the secrets behind their fame, their private relationships with each other, and their dramatic split from media giant BuzzFeed in 2018. Over the course of their first-ever national live performance tour, Keith, Ned, Zach, and Eugene confront the tension between their personal aspirations versus their collective goals and attempt to redefine what it means to be a YouTuber. Behind The Try is a never-before-seen look inside their tour bus & backstage where four very different creative individuals each wonder: is this the start of a new future or the last hurrah?

    This is going to sound like a terrible review, but just walk with me. In the first half of the movie, I thought I was watching a compilation of sneak peeks into their live show. I did not feel like I was getting anything new, but of course, I support them in anything they do, so I kept watching. I did not regret it. After that, it was a deep dive into the conflict on tour and the insecurities each of them had while on the tour. I also think they did a great job of making every insecurity feel valid. Some might think that Eugene's insecurities are a bigger deal than Ned's, Keith's, or Zach's because he could get disowned by his family, but all insecurities are valid and important and I think the movie did a great job of underlyingly saying that. All in all, if you are reading this before watching the movie, don't stop watching this in the middle. However, if you are a tryceratops or a Try Guy, I love all of you and it was great to watch.

  • Amazing Movie

    I’ve been watching the try guys for years and have always loved them. This movie is so amazing because it allows you to see all the hard work, emotion, energy and just all that these guys put into everything they do. It also makes you seriously think that what you see in a video is not everything that what into or comes out of it.
  • I cried and you will a good way!

    It is inspiring, relatable and just a great look at 4 unique individuals who have allowed us to have access to another look at their lives! I’ve been a fan for the last five years and will continue to support the future of try! The movie is great and definitely worth the buy and worth watching. Thanks to the guys for letting us be apart of the movement!
  • Simply AMAZING

    I decided to watch this on my 2 hour flight and my fellow passengers got the privilege of seeing me boo hoo cry and laugh historically interchangeably every 5 minutes. I didn’t think it was possible to like these four guys more than I already did but they proved me wrong. If you like the try guys definitely watch this movie!
  • If you love them, you’ll love this

    I have been watching the Try Guys since they were on Buzzfeed and have never stopped since. I legitimately cried for the last 30 minutes of the movie. They all mean so much to me, and this documentary was a testament to all that they’ve accomplished and what they’ve done for viewers all these years. It was incredible to get more insight into their lives and see even more behind the scenes into who they are as people. Even if you have only been a short time viewer, it’s definitely worth the watch. It tells their story, and I can only hope that that story will continue into the future. Stay awesome guys!
