Editorial Reviews

Review

"A master class in comedy" -- TIME

"An uproarious dissection of a notorious dirty joke told by a retinue of famous comedians." -- The New York Times

"Raucous and raunchy...a hilarious deconstruction of the filthiest joke ever told as interpreted by more than 100 comedians." -- Premiere

"Without a second of nudity, this is the filthiest movie you’ll ever see!" -- E! Online

"You’ll laugh till it hurts." -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Product Description

Comedy veterans and co-creators Penn Jillette (one half of the hit duo Penn & Teller) and Paul Provenza capitalize on their insider status and invite over 100 of their closest friends (who happen to be some of the biggest names in entertainment, from George Carlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Drew Carey to Gilbert Gottfried, Bob Saget, Paul Reiser and Sarah Silverman) to reminisce, analyze and deliver their own versions of the world’s dirtiest joke, an old burlesque routine too extreme to be performed in public, called The Aristocrats. One of the smash hits of the 2005 Sundance film festival, this critically acclaimed, star-studded comedy extravaganza, which celebrates the art of improvisation and the finest (and most foul mouthed) traditions of stand up, is sure to stretch the limits of its audience, particularly for how loud and how long they can laugh.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I saw this film at a college theater in Ann Arbor, because I knew it would never come to the area where I live. It is the funniest and filthiest documentary ever made, about the funniest and filthiest joke ever told. One hundred comedians either tell the joke or comment on it or both. It's been an "in-thing" among comedians for years, and now at last it's out there for all to see. If your tolerance for scatalogical, sick, perverted humor is not high, don't even try to see it. It takes a strong stomach to listen to the joke as it becomes ever more depraved, but if you can take it, your sides will ache from laughter before it's over.

I like this film for what it says about free speech and the face/state of comedy in America.

By any measure the language is rough and the joke appalling, but only if you think of this as something *other than* comedy one-upmanship. My only complaint with the film is that it wasn't long enough and some comics were just face time (like Jon Stewart and Chris Rock). Here's my highlight reel:

BEST DELIVERY Martin Mull, laid back and hilarious. Taylor Kegan, smooth and articulate.

DADS TALKING DIRTY: Andy Richter and Doug Stanhope with their infant sons. Funny and freakishly disturbing.

MOST OBNOXIOUS: Mario Cantone, Andy Dick

VETERAN GREATS: Jay Marshall (who also has a terrific joke in the end credits) and Pat Cooper, the misanthrope.

COSMIC COMIC CHICKS: Carrie Fisher, Sarah Silverman, Wendy Liebman

NICE TOUCHES: The Joe Franklin-Sarah Silverman "relationship"; the very last comic in the end credits (can't say who he/she is, or I'd spoil it for you); comments by journalist Frank DiGiacomo; all the extra goodies on the DVD version.

BIGGEST SURPRISE: How the "same" joke can be told so differently yet reveal so little about the comic.

This is a great, hysterical movie. You can watch it over and over and will still laugh out loud. It has a great variety of different types of comedians and different styles of joke telling. It also has some interesting insight into the behind the scenes of the comedy world. It has something for everybody, unless, of course, you are easily offended.

This movie is not a joke. It an unpretentious treatise on comedy. And the joke is performed by masters. It's the comedic equivalent of opera...majestic variations on a deceptively simple theme. If that weren't enough, it's a huge step forward for freedom of expression. Now how many movies can you say all of that about?

The funniest thing I've seen in the theater in ages. But it is very raunchy. Avoid it if you are offended by particular ideas, or the arrangement of sounds in particular ways. If you're offended by this movie, you deserve to be.

I won't quote my favorite quotes because I don't think amazon would be hip to that, but I loved this movie so much I actually had to get out of my seat in the theater. It shows no mercy on the laughes and I had trouble breathing.

Do not rent this dvd. Buy it. I'm sure I'll get something new each time I watch it.

NOTE: based on an in-theater viewing

That's right. I genuinely thought I would vomit.

I was laughing that hard.

Yes. The editing could've been better. Yes, it's missing some A-list talent. Even so, I spent more than half of the movie actively laughing. Maybe it's that I'm 22 and enjoy vulgar humor.

If you don't enjoy vulgar humor, don't watch the condemned movie, and spare me the fornicating sanctimony.

It's as vulgar as advertised. YOU HAD TO KNOW IT WAS COMING.

Even so, I thought it was quite funny and interesting. As mentioned by others, Drew Carey's "punchline to the punchline" is enjoyable. Gilbert Gottfried is as funny explaining some of the physical mechanics of another comedian's telling as he is telling it himself. Seeing Bob Saget tell it was a priceless contrast--his image and the images he evoked.

Regardless--if you can handle the content and enjoy offensive humor, it's as good as (or better than) you likely expect.

If you don't like that stuff--clearly not the choice for you.

Filthy vile disgusting incredibly funny examination of free speech. No nudity. No sex. No violence. Just words. Except of course when Billy the Mime does his take on this classic joke. Gilbert pushed the envelope daring to punch holes in the human psyche by being the first to turn tragedy in to comedy. To patch up the holes he unleashes The Aristocrats. Laughter heals. Genius. Smart. Funny. There, I said it.
