Product Description

CERTIFIABLY JONATHAN is a Comedy that weaves in and out of the bi-polar world of Jonathan Winters, where reality and fantasy collide. Jonathan Winters, a 78-year old comic genius, is also a gifted painter who dreams of having his work hung in the Museum of Modern Art. When a famous art critic believes Jonathan is the missing link between Miro and Dali , he convinces the museum to give Jonathan a show of his new yet unrealized paintings. Jonathan launches into a creative frenzy, until disaster strikes when his sense of humor is stolen and he can no longer paint. Jonathan is about to lose his opportunity of a lifetime. He sets out on a quest to get his mojo back with the help of Howie Mandel, Rob Reiner, Tim Conway, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Ryan Stiles, Jeffrey Tambor, Jim Carey, Alexis Arquette, David Arquette, Patricia Arquette, Rosanna Arquette, Sheena Easton, Robert Klein, Kevin Dunn, Ernie Hudson, Michael Bofshever, Alan Wasserman, Gary Owens, and Fabio!

Review

Hilarious. - Winters legendary inventiveness as a comedian has not diminished with the years, ... and his timing is just as sharp as in TV appearances from the 1950 s. --New York Post

Robin Williams riffing with obvious role-model Winters is truly amusing. --Los Angeles Times

A comic and metaphorical look at Winters up-and-down personality. Robin Williams sitting opposite Winters and free-associating ... amounts to the comedic equivalent of Dueling Banjos. --Chicago Tribune

Viewers might be a bit confused until it becomes clear that the movie is more a work of performance art and listed as a "mockumentary" in publicity info for the film. While I was hoping for a bit more of the zany and seemingy improvised Winters humor which I remembered from classic television shows, I didn't find much of that here.

But this was still entertaining in parts. I was not familiar with Winters' artwork and it is truly fascinating as well as revealing his unique take on life. The whole premise of Johnathan losing his sense of humor and not being able to create artwork for a show at the Museum of Modern Art seemed a bit forced to me. There are plenty of guest celebrities in this movie, including Robin Williams, Sarah Silverman,etc

For those looking for something different and who also like celebrity art, this is worth checking out. Also, while random and Infrequent,there are also some old clips of Winters' performances, particularly on black and white television shows. These are not the focus of the film,however.

I'm not sure how to sum this one up. For me, it came across as an experiment which sometimes amused and other times just seemed a bit erratic.

It's such a joy to see Jonathan as the unique national treasure that he is that I truly loved this film. He hasn't lost a step and its a delight to see today's successful comedians gathering around to pay their homage as they interact with him in scene after scene. It has several magic moments (Robin Williams, Howie Mandel, etc.) and the overall sheer pleasure of experiencing Jonathan in his element makes this a highly recommendable film. There are plenty of fun turns and twists too that I don't want to spoil. Who knew that Jonathan was also such an amazing artist! Bottom line, if you are a fan, you cannot deny yourself this treat.

A painfully bad, unfunny, artless "mockumentary" starring Jonathan Winters. What a missed opportunity. A real documentary about Winters would have been amazing. You see flashes of what could have been -- moments of great humor whenever Jonathan is allowed to riff free and loose and be real. But the fake story about Winters trying to get into the Museum of Modern Art and suffering after a painting of his is stolen (he's really a fantastic artist) is both unconvincing and devoid of humor. Robin Williams livens things up a bit once or twice. There's a decent scene of Winters and Howie Mandell shopping in Target looking for where they can buy "funny," and the scene where Winters tries to hire a hitman to recover his lost sense of humor almost achieves something, but the rest is awful. I kept watching for glimpses of Winters being Winters, which you get, but I definitely don't recommend this film. Try Winters' other DVDs or albums instead.

Tonight I saw this documentary on Pay Per View Cable, and it was so absorbing and unique that I just HAD to buy it. I met JONATHAN WINTERS in front of the Warwick Hotel in NY in 1958, and I asked for his autograph, and he said, "You don't even know who I am!" And I said, "You are Jonathan Winters, and you must be a star now because you in my "TV Annual" here." He was so excited and wanted to see it. He was on Jack Paar a lot and screamingly funny.
But in the last 15 years I have been buying his ART BOOKS because I am fanatically interested in art history. Jonathan Winters is enormously talented as an artist. This documentary covers Winters the comedian and Winters the artist, and it has about 50 guest stars. And 49 of them were worth seeing.
The director, who has a great directing name: PASTERNAK, should get an award for this baby. If you like to laugh, love fine paintings, and want to have a memorable night, buy this DVD. I will!

Oh my gosh!!! I love this program. The banter between Jonathan Winters and Robbin Williams is brilliant!! The number of "guest comedians and celebs" really makes this work. There is Howie Mandel, Rob Reiner, Tim Conway, Jimmy Kimmel, Nora Dunn, Sarah Silverman, Jeffrey Tambor, Jim Carrey, the entire Arquette Family or seems to be, Alexis, David, Patricia and Rosanna, Sheena Easton, Robert Klein, Kevin Dunn, Ernie Hudson, Michael Bofshever, Alan Wasserman, Gary Owens and even Fabio.

I never knew that Jonathan Winters was an artist as well. His artwork is suprisingly good. Certifiably Jonathan is centered on Jonathan being "hell-bent" in getting his artwork into the Museum of Modern Art with the help of his friends. If you are a fan of Jonathan Winters or you just to like to laugh, I highly recommend this dvd.

I was disgusted with this so called tribute, by so called fans. First off there is very little clips of his work. Second they make a fool out of him by telling him he is a genius with a paint brush, the whole thing is dragging him all over with his ART - which is not that good in my opinion. Third, this all transpires when he is in his 80's it is pitiful and embarrassing. Finally They should've done a documentary befitting the REALLY FUNNY MAN HE WAS. You can see towards the end that he is embarrassed. Pasternack is no friend and I'd like a refund of purchase, for MISREPRESENTATION.
