Watch Trailer

Joe Pantoliano (The Sopranos, Memento, The Matrix) makes his documentary directorial debut with NO KIDDING! ME 2!! as part of his fight against the stigma and shame of mental/brain "dis-ease" (or disease). This empowering film sheds light on what nearly 100 million Americans suffer in isolation. Through candid, often humorous discussions with Pantoliano and his family on their struggle with his own clinical depression, as well as the compelling stories of six other people from all walks of life, all affected differently by mental illness, including a brain surgeon with bipolar disorder and three high school students managing bipolar disorder and clinical depression. Each frankly discusses the struggle before they were diagnosed, including attempts at self-medication and other destructive behavior, as well as the hope and encouragement they discover when managing their own recovery and realizing they are not alone. The result is an inspiring vision of a society that "stomps the stigma," as those impacted by mental illness are surprised to find millions of others like themselves, saying, "No kidding, me too!"

I work at Silver Hill Hospital and Joey was kind enough to loan us a copy to preview last fall. The individuals featured in the movie share their moving stories with strength, humor and incredible insight. Joey has created a wonderful film that helps people realize it's not only ok, but also healthy, to talk about mental dis-ease. I highly recommend this movie and the wonderful work of No Kidding, Me Too!

Maybe now more people will pay attention to the need for more education on this topic.It takes a lot of courage for any person, let alone a celebrity to come forward!

This documentary is powerful, well done, and a must have. Get it now. Share it with others.

This documentary does on a large scale what I've been trying to do all my life in my one man crusade. Growing up being diagnosed "hyper kinetic", and later ADHD, I also went through bouts of severe depression. I went from being drugged-down to be more "normal", to being sidelined in just about every way. I've never felt diseased, or ill. I've always felt different, but I always knew I was smarter than most of my classmates. I did my homework and have been trying to tell people that people like me also come with many gifts -- and I believe the gifts to be more numerous than the detriments. Until coming across Joey's amazing organization and work, I kinda always thought I was on my own in that regard.

There can be no more important topic to address, and Joey has made this his life passion. Stomping the stigma, and making brain dis-ease cool to talk about is crucial to allowing the vast majority of the population able to be real with themselves and everyone else. Joey is addressing something that everyone else was afraid to touch, most people try to hide, and everyone wants to be open about, and he does it masterfully.

Love ya, Joey! and by the way, No kidding, me too!!
"No Kidding! Me 2!" is a very good documentary, that gives us people with a "Mental Illnes" diagnosis a look at others who, through no fault of their own have also found themselves in similar circumstances.
Many of us, like Joe, have come to our diagnosis later in our lives, but have suffered for years without really knowing why...if we can really figure out why.
I am currently getting ready to graduate from my local day rehab program, am finishing up my internship for my certification to become a Peer Support Specialist and hope to take my state boards in August.
I hope that Joe and NKM2 can produce more outstanding material to show that we are all just people with a disease that needs to be addressed as what it is a disease that we certainly didn't ask for and certainly don't want to be stigmatized for.
Dorothy Hamill was a guest speaker here, and she told us that when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, that there wasn't enough that people could/would do for her. But when she was diagnosed with Major Depression, there was like no communication at all.
NKM2 keep up the good work on your end, and I will try to keep up on mine!!

The documentary, directed, inspired by, produced by great character actor Joe Pantoliano is a gift to all of us. Everyone has, or knows someone who has been touched by a form of 'mental illness'. The film, and Pantoliano go to great lengths to remove the stigma associated with these kinds of troubles. The message of the film is even more important as thousands of injured veterans from the Irag and Afghanistan wars begin to come home. Many of these vets need our help and compassion. It is critical for the physical and moral strength of our nation that wew help them, and anyone else who has been labeled as 'damaged goods due to mental illness'. Buy the DVD and pass it on! Great job Joey Pants!

If you want to watch reality TV - this is your lucky day! This documentary sheds light on mental illness in a way that it should be. Mental illness is reality for alot of people, but people try to hide this reality from others. Why? STIGMA! In 2011, we should not have to feel shame for having a disease. Please get this movie- it just might save a life.

Purchased this DVD to assist family members in understanding our history of mental illness (anxiety, depression, bi-polar). It was a little heavy going sometimes but also had it's humorous moments. More importantly it carries a message of hope, which is strategic in coping with mental illness.
