Product Description

In order to beat the world record for non-stop movie watching, you're going to have to stay up for 123 hours and watch at least 57 films. Guiness lets you have a ten minute break after every film but if you even look away or take a long blink, you're out (and no, you can't do drugs!). This documentary was meant to casually follow eight contestants as they competed to break the world record and also take home the $10,000 prize Netflix offered every winner.

Unfortunately, things did not go as planned. You see, the primary side effect of sleep deprivation is dementia. So, when the crew decided to stay up with the contestants, everyone list their minds at an equally alarming rate. Contestants tapped out after hallucinating, the host became a cartoon, and a giant bunny head became a deadly weapon. Drugs and violence seemed to be the only sane thing about this five day head-trip and the end result is more of a look inside a Plexiglass loony bin thana documentary about world records. When the money man behind this film saw their investment wrought, the filmakers were promptly fired and the film was thrown in the trash never to be seen again.

We're not going to tell you how we got it but we got it and now it;s yours. Please don't tell anyone you have this. We could get in a heap of s**t.

Have not gotten the DVD yet so I can't really rate or talk about things like special features or anything like that but I have gotten to see the film. WOW. This is what Insomniac with Dave Attell was trying to be. It is funny and weird and awesome. If you enjoy marathon movie watching (and hey, some of us do!) it is the perfect cap to your night. It really resonates with that 'not enough sleep and too much caffeine/nicotine/sugar/alcohol' place in a fun way.

Yes, it's a documentary hosted by a comedian. While he doesn't actually go 5 days with no sleep, he does go a while and then get piss drunk. The effects are awesome and the comedy flows. I love it!

Although, when I purchased...it was NOT 80 bucks!

If you're a fan of Gavin and StreetCarnage you'll love this.

If you're not a fan, than you're a dweeb. Get outta here, dweeb.

I started paying attention to Gavin McInnes after reading some of his essays at TakiMag. However, with the exception of a few of his online videos relating to beards and fatherhood, I have been underwhelmed by his comedy. "A Million in the Morning" is no exception.

In this docu-comedy, the Netflix corporation sponsors a contest to break the Guiness Book of World Records record for continuous movie watching. About 7 contestants are invited to stay awake for 5 days in a glass-walled gazebo in Times Square in New York City. McInnes, in his (trademark?) black suit with plaid tie, was apparently hired by Netflix to be a combination reporter/MC for the event. Although this isn't stated explicitly, the Netflix logo is plastered everywhere, including on McInnes microphone. However, McInnes doesn't really use this opportunity to cover the event. Instead, he spends the 5 days hamming it up on camera, and the movie is really about watching McInnes get bored, tired, rowdy, and eventually drunk and rowdy.

You can't hire McInnes without knowing what his humor is like, so the fact that Netflix didn't get a straight-up documentary of their event can't have bothered them too much. They must have known what they were in for. The real problem with the movie is that it feels a little staged and isn't that funny. McInnes' hook is that he is going to stay up for 5 days with the contestants. However, it's obvious that he doesn't. He says this explicitly when he talks about falling asleep, but it's not clear how much he sleeps. By the end of the movie, his speech is pretty quick and sensible for someone who's been awake for 5 days, making you wonder if he took long naps.

The Netflix guys didn't fire the filmmakers because the camera crew went nuts after 5 days of no sleep, they fired them because the camera crew got smashed-drunk and acted like morons. The people actually participating in the world record are the ones with no sleep whatsoever and they seem completely fine during the movie. The presenter starts acting more and more like an idiot, probably in a desperate effort to make this incredibly boring documentary more interesting. He fails. I'm not even going to re-gift this DVD, that's how bad it is....
