Editorial Reviews

After a much publicized departure from hosting NBC's "Tonight Show," Conan O'Brien hit the road with a 32-city music-and-comedy show. "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour" was O'Brien's answer to a contractual stipulation that banned his appearance on television, radio and the internet for six months following his last show. Filmmaker Rodman Flender's resulting documentary, CONAN O'BRIEN CAN T STOP, is an intimate portrait of an artist trained in improvisation, captured at the most improvisational time of his career.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's A Reason It's Called "Can't Stop" June 25, 2011
Format:DVD
Let's be clear on this. There's a reason this film is called "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop", rather than "Conan O'Brien Doesn't Want To Stop" or "Conan O'Brien Would Really Prefer Not To Stop, If It's Alright With You". Not only does the chosen title roll off the tongue rather better, but it's also absolutely, awe-inspiringly true.

This documentary received rave reviews when it debuted at the South by Southwest Film Festival, and it's easy to see why. "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop" is a fantastic, engaging film about an extremely driven man at a crossroads in his professional life.

Apart from a couple of questions posed to Conan throughout the film, there is no audio commentary/voice-over from Rodman Flender. The footage speaks for itself, and the camera-work is intimate without feeling invasive. The film includes some footage of the actual tour performances, but the vast majority of the documentary is focused behind-the-scenes, and takes us on a complete journey of the tour: from the first tweet announcing the release of tickets to the final show in Atlanta. Along the way, we see Conan perform at every opportunity, even on his days off. We see a man unable to resist meeting and entertaining his fans even when he seems at times to barely have the energy to stand up. We see his interactions with his staff and crew, including sidekick Andy Richter (their genuine friendship over and above their comedic rapport is abundantly clear). The film also includes some heart-warming moments with Conan's family.

All in all, for 89 minutes, this film showcases the real life of a talented, intense performer and man, including the ups and downs and the hilarity and the tired crankiness. A very entertaining, honest and eye-opening film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!!! July 22, 2011
By Springv
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I loved this documentary and watching it made me respect Conan O'Brien even more than I already did. When the whole situation with NBC and Jay Leno went down, I was appalled at the unbridled greed, selfishess and utter lack of loyalty on the part of both parties. On the flip side however, I was extremely impressed with the way Conan O'Brien handled the situation. Rather than just take the money and change his time slot to appease NBC and Leno's self-serving whims, he chose to stand by his principles and walk away from the situation entirely. He did what he believed to be the RIGHT thing rather than the easy thing. On the contrary in fact...he walked away from a show he loved after being simultaneously knifed in the back and sucker-punched by the very company and people that made him a promise 5 years earlier and then just changed their minds to accomodate their own ego=oriented, money-drieven agendas. I don't see how anyone can have anything but respect for a person so willing to stand by their convictions even if it causes them great pain to do so. The documentary shows Conan exactly as he was at the time it was filmed - brutally honest, hilarious, self deprecating, sometimes bitingly sarcastic, sometimes cranky and clearly still reeling from the loss of his dream job, and all the while he pushes forward in an effort to recover, grow, try something new and most importantly to persevere even when it's really hard and dreams have been dashed by betrayal. Conan is an absolute inspiration. Anyone who likes to see good guys triumph wil be rooting for him all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome behind the scenes look at Conan August 6, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I expected things to be a bit censored or sugar-coated, but this was an excellent behind-the-scenes look at Conan and his staff, during the time after just leaving the Tonight Show and during his cross country live show tour. Really well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best film of the year June 26, 2011
Ever since middle school, I have been a huge fan of Conan O'Brien. I would only watch his show on Fridays or over school breaks because if I got caught being up so late, I'd get in trouble. But when he started on The Tonight Show, I stayed up late and watched it anyways no matter the day. So I was watching every night as the battle for The Tonight Show unfolded and, like many, I gave all of my support to him. So after leaving the Tonight Show, he planned a 32-city live tour, which is what the film focuses on.

The tour moments are fun, especially the backstage bits. During the Radio City Music Hall show, we see Conan, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert backstage preparing their skit a mere 9 minutes before they go onstage and perform it. We really see the creativity that went into this tour and they pulled it off nicely. There are moments after the shows where he complains about not wanting to meet fans, but he does it anyways. He definitely shows much appreciation for them and all of their support.

We get to see a darker side of Conan in the film. At one point, he teases Jack McBrayer, calling him a hick and even making up a song on the spot that's very dark, yet I found myself laughing. Who wouldn't be able to go into a darker place after losing one of the biggest television shows of all time? Honestly the film made me love Conan even more. Even though he does act somewhat mean at times, his amazing team still sticks with him. He has such a wonderful group of people supporting him. There are some really nice moments of him with long time friend and sidekick, Andy Richter. You can really tell that they will always be there for each other. Also I have to give credit to Sona Movsesian, Conan's assistant, who handles him well at some pretty rough times.

Too UnHappy! I hope that Conan can get it together. I sympathize with him. He got robbed. But now he needs to rise above it.

Meh. At the end of the day not that interesting. Conan wants sympathy but I just don't feel sorry for him. Plus he's kind of a jerk.

2.0 out of 5 stars A day in the life of Conan.
Interesting, but not very funny. Sort of like sitting in on his therapy sessions. We didn't watch but 15-20 minutes of it, so don't know if things perked up later.

1.0 out of 5 stars If anyone doesn't know why he was fired by NBC....
...watch this! Slow. Not funny. Ultimately pathetic. Anyone know how I can get 87 minutes and 13 seconds added back to my life? I didn't watch the credits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad - Not too good
I like Conan and still do. The documentary was interesting at first then it becomes repetitious. Overall, it was alright.
