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

Customer Reviews

I would like to read a passage from the Book of Rebney.
T-bone
Winnebago Man suffers from Steinbauer's inability to explain why he's making the documentary and Jack Rebney's well-founded doubts about the idea.
David Ljunggren
It's a great moment and one that had me smiling the whole time.

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!

Summary: If you are like me, one of the greatest days of your life was the day you discovered "The Winnebago Man", a compilation of outtakes from a promotional video gone horribly awry. The reason for the brilliance of the video is a man named Jack Rebney, a man who forgot his lines, mercilessly harassed the crew, and commented on the idiotic nature of his own dialogue. After recovering from the epidemic of laughter that swept through the land, America was left with just one question: Who is Jack Rebney? Ben Steinbauer, a documentarian with nobility in his heart and courage in his mind, decided to step up to the plate and take the daunting task of tracking down Mr. Rebney. After multiple Google searches and a visit to a private detective, Steinbauer finally finds the true Jack Rebney, although the results are initially disappointing. A sweet, well spoken old man who lives a life of monk-like solitude in a remote cabin expresses remorse at his coarse language and attitude he adhered to in the past. Steinbauer, seemingly defeated, retreats back home, only to be contacted by Rebney a few weeks later with a startling confession: the innocent Jack Rebney Ben had met before was a charade, and the real Jack was dying to get out. From this point, we begin to see Jack Rebney as he truly is: a bitter, cantankerous, but somehow lovable old man who has an affinity for cursing.

Review: Over the next hour, we begin to see a genuine relationship grow between Ben and Jack, and this relationship is easily the strongpoint of the movie. Ben's patience and gentle nature acts as a perfect antithesis to Jack's short-fused attitude and explosive personality.

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!...
