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

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.

We saw the viral clips online and wondered if there was more to the story. We were tickled to find this video. We laughed, we laughed until we cried and then the towards the end the Winnebago Man made us take a step back and think. LOVED IT!

This was a very enjoyable documentary and much better than I thought it would be. I had never heard of Jack Rebney prior to this movie. I liked him a lot more than the filmmaker and I wish the filmmaker had chosen to show more of Jack's opinions. In the end, it was really heartwarming to watch this rather cantankerous gentleman when he visited a theater San Francisco where the original clips were screened in a theater. Lots of people came to see him and appreciate him and he wasn't expecting that at all. You could tell that he was really touched by it.

Get the kids out of the room and get ready for some of the most hilarious unscripted outtakes you've ever heard from a guy you've never heard of - Jack Rebney. It's a great story that defies description. Just watch it...again, without the kids.

I absolutely loved this movie!! Jack Rebney is hilarious! His somewhat cantankerous disposition and unyielding candor expressed with such powerful and colorful profanity made me laugh hysterically at several points in this film. Jack is a straight shooter and will say exactly what is on his mind with a sharp wit and profane punch! If you are offended by offensive language then you may want to watch a Disney film instead, but if you are like me, and are not offended by colorful language but actually prefer it as an effective means of delivering a more powerful expression of your thoughts you will adore Jack Rebney!

Based on the premise of what the movie is about, you wonder how could there be enough content to make a full length movie and make it interesting. But it is. It's flat out funny as well as touching in places. It's also amazing how this man and his venting tirades have become somewhat iconic. His words are quoted by a number of other performers and only by seeing this movie do you get the joke. "Would you do me a kindness, Tony and watch this video?"

It was alright.
Watched it hoping there would be more commercial outtakes in this than the ones posted on youtube but there really wasn't.

Was hoping more for a comedy and it went the route of a serious documentary route instead. Also tried more for a feel good life lesson story and that just didn't deliver that well nor belong in the film in my opinion.

Repeated a bit and could have been cut down run time wise resulting.

Nothing wrong with it, just it would be the same as following around the average person which for the most part isn't that exciting.

Recommended from SYSK "Chuck's 20 Top Documentaries" list.
As one who had never heard of the Angriest Man Alive/the Winnebago Man I didn't have a reference or know what to expect, but am so happy I watched this and know I'll watch it again. It's a satisfying story from beginning to end, so well told and edited for what looks like an independent, small budget film.
