For a movie literally about "finding the funny," it's ironic that director Jim Pasternak too rarely does in his fitfully lively but mostly awkward mockumentary "Certifiably Jonathan."

Jonathan Winters is a fine and funny fellow, and deserves better than this.

Fortunately, Winters' legendary inventiveness as a comedian has not diminished with the years.

Observing his subject both on and off medication (Mr. Winters says he is bipolar), Mr. Pasternak has produced a film that feels depressingly exploitative.

Faux documentary about the legendary comedian squanders the rich potential of its subject.

Jim Pasternak's documentary is a sophisticated appreciation of Winters as an unsung multi-talent.

There's a trove of laughs to be found here, courtesy of the ineffable Jonathan Winters, which somewhat override the labored mockumentary gimmick.

A whimsical documentary about the elderly comedian Jonathan Winters and his quest to have his paintings exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art.

It's got a great subject -- the extraordinarily voluble comedian Jonathan Winters, whose constant rush of words can be like a blizzard: beautiful, maddening, exhausting and finally beautiful again. But it's not a great film.
