Product Description

Dysfunktional Family

From the Back Cover

The always outrageous comedian Eddie Griffin ("Undercover Brother," "Double Take") brings the funk to his thoroughly hilarious family reunion in this revealing and wildly entertaining comedy gem! The cameras are rolling and the laughs don't stop as we follow Griffin on his journey home to the Kansas City neighborhood he grew up in! There we meet his anything-but-average family--including two off-the-wall uncles--and get to join in one very lively and interesting family gathering! If you've ever wondered how your favorite comedians got so funny, don't miss this fascinating look at Eddie Griffin and the one-of-a-kind characters who shaped his life and inspired his comedy!

Customer Reviews

One of the funniest stand up comedy pieces I've seen in a long time.

In Dysfunctional Family Eddie basically talks about his life and obviously his hard and good times with his Dysfunktional Family.
Keith A. Jones
Some of the things he said, many would agree on but would be too afraid to say it themselves.

Other people rating this seem to downgrade it based on cussing. I don't have a problem with cussing - this is in the tradition of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and others - and it ranks up there with them. If you expect something else, that's your bad. This is some of the funniest stand-up I have ever seen, he had me crying. The man is hilarious, and needs to put out more of this type of off-the-chain material, instead of being all bottled-up on Malcolm and Eddie and Baby Daddy and stuff like that. I feel like this is the REAL Eddie Griffin.

Also, this is called a documentary of him returning home, but that's inaccurate, it's a stand-up show with cuts of his family and hometown interspersed.

I don't know why there's so many bad reviews about this dvd. Eddie Griffin is a great comedian and incorporated parts of his life to better tell his story. He did use the "N" word excessively but so what? Rappers do it all the time to express themselves but everyone is complaining about him using the word for some reason. I think his standup routine comes in close second to Dave Chapelle's "Killin Em Softly".

First I don't know Why people get offended by things said in stand up comedy knowing that if it says on the back of the dvd case rated R It's gonna have some words that will offend people who have virgin ears. In Dysfunctional Family I have to salute Eddie Griffen because I truly did doubt his capability to perform a descent stand up let alone a great one but he sure pulled it off. In Dysfunctional Family Eddie basically talks about his life and obviously his hard and good times with his Dysfunktional Family. I was surprised how he even made jokes about the really hard times with his family and made them hilarious like having to live with his uncle for a bit and watching him do drugs, or when he first met his father when he was a teen. Some of these stories are outrageous but you believe them because his family is there the whole time talking and laughing about the stories. Eddie Griffen surely does have a unique and Dysfunktional Family and I'm glad he shared their stories. This is a great stand up every time I see this I'm laughing for the next few days trying to get theese jokes out of my system.

This is a pretty good DVD. One has to hand it to Eddie for revealing such dysfunctional family behaviour that would usually be kept secret. He has really aired the dirty laundry on this show. The good thng about it is that ALL families have a degree of dysfunctionality about them.

There are several sidesplitting jokes to be enjoyed by all. The jokes are indeed quite funny, but I have to say that I have heard very similar jokes told by Richard Pryor. In fact, the similarities extend into Eddie's physical humour. Perhaps it evidence of Pryor's influence on comedians that came after him that there should be such striking similarities.

As is customary with Griffin performances, it's all about the jokes. There is precious little socio-plitical commentary. that is okay though, because the jokes are good enough to keep you interested. I for one, prefer to watch satirists and socio-political commentators of high calibre (eg Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Michael Colyar). Eddie is the funniest guy I know who does little commentary.

I would strictly rate this dvd at 70%, but our 5 star rating system does not permit. Worth watching

With an R rating on its package, what did people expect? Rainbows and fuzzy bears popping out of the box??? I'm sorry to say, but people should know what they are getting into. It's not exactly uncommon for profanity or other "offensive" content to be thrown around in a stand up comedy. If you want something that's not so controversial, stick with the PG stuff. We all need to ease up on the sensitivity issue and lighten up, esp when you're watching a stand up...

Hands-down, the funniest stand-up comedian I have ever seen. If you are sensitive to cuss words, don't see it. Other than that, its hilarious.
