The guilty pleasure to end all guilty pleasures.

Paul Arendt

The film has the feel of a long and fascinating chat rather than a formal thesis. But if it feels a little self-congratulatory at times, that's a small price to pay.

Hilarious, jarring, shocking, divisive and confrontational.

What makes the experience enjoyable for those who tough out the vulgarity will be insights into comedy.

Take the very sound advice of this film's executive producer and don't see this movie if you've ever been offended by a word.

Frequently amusing documentary with an impressive array of talking heads, though the joke wears thin way before the end of the film.

shows that a simple story can turn into a kind of verbal jazz... each performer can put his or her own personal stamp on it, making it longer or cruder or more sophisticated.

So this man walks into this talent agent's office...wait a minute. I can't even begin to think about telling The Joke.

What the film really reveals is the role of the comedian in society and the craftsmanship of joke-writing and joke delivery.

...about the cultural practices of a small and needful tribe, a vanishing breed called the comic, about the damage their famously tortured psyches sustain.

The movie drags after a spell, but it's unforgettably reanimated when Gilbert Gottfried's rendition of the joke teaches us why all this potty-mouthed discourse is important.

An intentionally one-joke film, The Aristocrats can't help but be repetitive, and its endless muck and perversions can wear on a viewer.

As The Aristocrats demonstrates, there is real humor in the confrontation of taboos -- and if there are any taboos left to be stared down after this picture, friends, I'm not sure I want to know about 'em.

The results are unbelievably gross and -- once you get with the program -- side-splittingly funny.
