Movie Info

Jonathan Winters, 85-year-old comic genius, is a gifted painter. He dreams of having his paintings hang in the Museum of Modern Art.

The filmmakers decide to help by hunting down a famous critic and show him Jonathan's paintings.

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.

Would seem inconsequential under any circumstances, but feels especially threadbare coming on the heels of Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work.

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.
