Top Customer Reviews
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.
Do not rent this dvd. Buy it. I'm sure I'll get something new each time I watch it.
Yes, it is horribly disgusting, sickening, and grotesque. Yes, it involves people talking about utterly disgusting & despicable acts. Yet, it raises several intellectual points.
1. The entire movie is people talking about taboo subjects in a humorous manner. Are you offended? Why? Why not? This is an excellent example of free speech!
2. Why is it funny? Why are you laughing so hard? You analyze the nature of comedy.
3. A hundred different people tell the same joke in different ways and they all generate laughs. It is definitely the violinist and not the violin.
BUY THIS MOVIE!
If you can only buy a few films a year..this should be one of them. I've seen it 5 times and each time I laugh harder and pick up on something new. I've never enjoyed a film more.
Hollywood should sit up and take notice. If more people put out movies like Paul Provenza and Penn Jillette.....Hollywood wouldn't be in the slump that it's in right now.
