Review

One of the funniest documentaries ever made! --Michael Moore, Academy Award Winning Filmmaker

Two Thumbs Up! --Roger Ebert

Prepare to laugh hard! --San Francisco Chronicle

Product Description

What began as one of funniest videos of all time is now the acclaimed indie comedy hit of the year! Type The Angriest Man in the World; into any search engine and one name appears Jack Rebney (a.k.a. The Winnebago Man), an 80s RV salesman whose hilarious, profanity-strewn, on-the-job meltdown was captured on video and passed around on VHS tapes, before exploding into an Internet phenomenon seen by millions. When a young filmmaker goes in search of the legendary man who disappeared 20 years ago, he finds Rebney living alone on a mountain top, as sharp-tongued as ever, but more intelligent and lovable than anyone could have imagined. Winnebago Man is a outrageously funny and unexpectedly moving tale of one man's response to unwanted celebrity, and proof that the truth is both stranger and funnier than fiction. From Producers Joel Heller, Malcolm Pullinger and Ben Steinbauer. Special Features include: The never before seen Original Winnebago Sales Video starring Jack Rebney in its entirety, Featurette of the NY Premiere, with Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine), Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Daddy Day Care) and Jack Rebney, Original Theatrical Trailer. Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1 16x9 Anamorphic Widescreen

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and Funny, But Nothing Profound February 15, 2011
Format:DVD
Jack Rebney is famous for a video of outtakes from a Winnebago commercial filmed in 1989. The obscenity-laden video became a youtube sensation and intrigued Ben Steinbauer enough that he decided to make his first documentary about Jack Rebney, the reluctant star of the video. For twenty years, the video was passed around on VHS tapes until youtube allowed it to be uploaded for the entire world to see. Ben sets out to find Jack, first by tracking down the people involved in making the video only to discover that Jack Rebney hasn't been seen or heard since the making of it.

It should come as no surprise that Ben does find Jack Rebney and he now lives atop a mountain in Northern California. Nearly 80 years old, Jack is an articulate, well-spoken man who seems comfortable living the life of a hermit. In their first meeting, Jack appears to be a kind, old man unconcerned and even humored by the existence of the infamous video. After a week, Jack begins calling Ben and confesses that he put on an act due to the humiliation that came from the release of the video. This is where we get to know the real Jack Rebney, or as much as this documentary will allow.

The film's biggest flaw is that Ben found a remarkable subject in Jack Rebney, yet doesn't seem to take full advantage of that. Jack Rebney is a fascinating individual; highly intelligent, with a soothing, austere voice. He's very opinionated, thoughtful, hilarious, and unafraid to be vulgar. He's a difficult man, but a likable one. He makes it clear several times that he despises no one more than Dick Cheney and that he's working on a book about religion, life, sex, and politics. Jack sees Ben's film as a way to really show his true self, but I don't feel he was given the opportunity to do that.

Alright, here we go: this is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen, on any subject. It's not only for members of the Cult of Rebney (in case you live under a g--damn rock, I'm talking about Jack Rebney: the Winnebago Man, the Angriest Man in the World, the original viral video star, and the greatest swearer who ever lived).

The film has comedy: Rebney is one of the great crotchety old men of all time.

It has mystery: who is this monumental man, where does he live, what's the deal with his anger, what the f--k is this thing?

It has commentary: most Americans have "room-temperature IQs," the Ford Fiesta (or is it Festiva?) is a great car, and Bush-Cheney-Rumseld-Rove all deserve hot pokers up their a--es.

It also has flies, towels, windshields, seat belts, yelling, doors slamming, s--t hitting the fan, all types of "accoutrama"...and, last but not least, Tony! (If you have no clue what any of this means, go to YouTube and search "winnebago man.")

See this film ASAP, ya g--damn jackass. Or you can put it up your fern, if you want to.

NO MORE!

4.0 out of 5 stars A real sleeper worth watching. January 12, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Wow, what a nice surprise.
I'd never seen the Youtube vids. I started it just to see the clips of Jack the Winnebago salesman and yet watched the whole thing and I'm glad I did. Nice ending.
Surprisingly touching.
Great music.
It could have had a little more of Jack and less of Ben (the director). We never get to see Jack's monologue after they're thrown off the Walmart lot. That's a pity. Even the guys at the film festival somewhat waste their time with him. You end up thinking with the audience he's definitely a treasure, and that's a surprise.

Definitely worth watching as long as you don't mind the f word.
More Jack!...

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this documentary October 8, 2012
By kdeenak
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It was nice getting to know "the angriest man on earth." I learned he's so much more than that. He made me smile and is very articulate, even with the swearing lol. He has the courage to say what he feels, not what people want to hear.

THIS is a must see for anyone with a bent to speaking their mind. Jack is the Be all - end all of free speech and speaking one's mind. Miss this and you loose!

4.0 out of 5 stars Caught me by surprise. September 16, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I haven't been able to discover the Winnebago Man on youtube prior to me watching this documentary because my searches were not in junction with the material relayed in the videos. Despite the many searches and stumbleupons of videos featuring angry individuals and the like, I just didn't get around to viewing the so-called, angriest man alive.

I for some reason had recently gained interest in people who resort to living in an RV full time, so one day I had decided to search for documentaries involving RV living, when I didn't find what I was looking for through Amazon prime or Netflix instant streaming I simply searched Winnebago and thus how I stumbled upon the Winnebago Man.

The documentary is rather interesting and somewhat insightful of Jack Rebney's outlook then and now, when you look at it from the perspective of the intended audience, the ones who are given the opportunity to meet the true RV man.

This documentary allows you to see the back story of the Winnebago Man from the mouth of the Winnebago man himself.

It was, to a degree, like watching the real-life version of "Disney's Pixar Up".

In reverse, I have discovered the YouTube clips of the Winnebago Man from this documentary itself, instead of the other way around.

PS I was, caught by surprise by choice. I no longer watch trailers or look at reviews before watching a flick, ruins the whole thing.
