5.0 out of 5 stars Share the Warmth January 24, 2008
Format:DVD
Don Rickles is a king of comedy. His style of humor will be lost when he is gone. He does not tell stories, he insults and audiences have loved him for over 40 years. There are very few who can do what Rickles does and get away with it! His nickname Mr Warmth is known everywhere if you know comedy

However he is also an actor with many TV and film appearances to his credit, everything from X - The Man with the X-Ray Eyes, Beach Party/Bikini Beachto Toy Story & Toy Story 2 (2 Pack). This actor did everything from drama to comedy and made you believe.

So the question is Who is the real Don Rickles?

this special film is part of discovering Rickles. The man, the comic , the actor and human being. You see him, before he goes out into show and some of his stage act. Note this is not a concert film of his act, it shows highlights of his act. Other comedians from Richard Lewis to Chris Rock discuss in interviews what makes Rickles a comedian they admire.

You see in film clips from the Tonight Show appearances and Dean Martin roasts, you see the classic insult comic at his best in a medium that showcases his talents. My favorite piece is the Tonight Show's Johnny Carson miffed at Rickles breaking his cigarette box on the previous Tonight Show where he guest hosted, going over Rickles's show which was taping next door and reaming the insult comic out.

Also You see Rickles the actor with interviews from Filmmaker Roger Corman and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Landis on Rickles January 22, 2008
Format:DVD
As a kid growing up in the 70s, I loved Don Rickles. I always tried to stay up to see him on The Tonight Show, and I caught his act several times in Vegas and on Miami Beach. I even had a "Cracked" magazine devoted to him, which came out around the time of CPO Sharkey.

This is a loving tribute by steady hand John Landis, and places Don's humor, love, and affection in context by taking the viewer through the times in which Rickles worked. Vegas, Miami Beach, the mob, Frankie, Johnny, great interview segments with close friend Bob Newhart and many others, this is a heartwarming and very affectionate tribute to a great comic and great show biz legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Warmth is a Genius! December 5, 2007
Format:DVD
I saw Mr. Rickles show on HBO and it is absolutely wonderful and very heart warming. I had read Rickles Book and knew some of his story already but this is icing on the cake. He did an excellent job of gathering all his family and friends together to make this story and their side, as well as his side, is such a tribute to a lifetime of someone who has made the world a better place to live. At first, I thought it might be a bit too vulgar to watch with my parents but then I thought, "He's THEIR generation!", and I was right, they laughed their socks off and have told everyone to look for this show on HBO. When I saw that there is a DVD coming out too, I couldn't wait to order that to go with my Dad's huge collection of Don Rickles movies and Dean Martin Roasts. Thanks to Mr. Rickles for putting such a great effort into this project. It shows and it's worth it. He's called "Mr. Warmth", as a sarcastic way of how he reacts to people during his shows. But, to us who have read his book and watched this show, he is a warm-hearted soul just doing what he does best...entertaining! Love him!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fairly Blunt Tool June 14, 2012
Format:DVD
Have you ever just 'wished' a movie/documentary could be better? I was hoping for a real tribute to Don Rickles but I was disappointed in the production and editing of Mr. Warmth. I imagine he won't be around too much longer (he may prove me wrong!) but I hope there is enough old footage out there to really do a 'knock it outta the park' job on a better version of this funny, edgy career.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Master July 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very funny DVD. Lots of Don onstage as well as clips from various people speaking about Don. The section of Don coming out onstage in Vegas is well worth the purchase price by itself. "Stop the goddamn band!!" CLASSIC!! If you are a Don Rickles fan then you should already own this DVD...if not...SHAME ON YOU!!

Back in the day when DEAN MARTIN gathered famous people for a roast, it was always DON RICKLES that brought the audience to their knees laughing. Wet your pants funny stuff!

3.0 out of 5 stars The DON is alive and well January 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Growing up i loved it when Don Rickles would be scheduled on the Tonight Show lineup. He had a quick wit that surpassed those around him and when he went off into his wild mental/verbal assualts he was in a zone all his own. No one could lovingly cut people to shreds like Rickles. He seemed hateful and yet funny at the same time but there was always something special that came through from him that made you love him. He forced you to laugh at your own self no matter what background you came from and taught us all that humor and laughter is universal and the truth may hurt but laughter doeth good like a medicine. His gift was unique and only Robin Williams can hang with him when it comes to the art of fast verbal and mental connection and still be outrageous. This DVD captures some of that gift that he had but i would loved to have seen more of his Vegas show act and more clips of the classic Rickles on different talk shows of yesteryear but overall worth buying. NO one can do this kind of comedy like Rickles. This DVD makes you long for the good ole days of Johhny Carson and Las Vegas before it became a special effect freak show of trick-lighted counterfeit cardboard cutouts (see Eiffel Tower or not). Bring back the real Vegas where it was all about talented entertainers without the tricks.
