Critic Reviews for Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
Slickly directed by actor Mike Myers, it intersperses Gordon's sunny reminiscences with testimony from an army of A-list clients and celebrity pals. Admittedly, there are great stories here.
It may leave you asking: Why did I just watch that old guy's birthday tape?
Yes, there is some gravity in the film, but mostly it's the rock-and-roll story of a rock-and-roll life (even though one of his favorite clients was Canadian folk singer Anne Murray).
The stories are great... the kind of crazy Hollywood tales that could've only happened in the '70s.
You may not have heard of this Hollywood legend, but you definitely know a few of his famous friends.
Audience Reviews for Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
Most of the buzz around this documentary comes from its director: Mike Myers. Out of the spotlight for many years (following several box office bombs) Myers has turned his energy to the world of directing, and in particular to a giant in the industry: Shep Gordon. A man who has managed everyone from Alice Cooper to Emerill Lagasse, this famous manager has a buttload of stories, and is finally given a way to tell them.

Very interesting documentary about a man I'd never heard of yet is clearly one of the most influential/popular people in the entertainment world, he helped create/manage Alice Cooper and several other big acts, helped create the entertainment chef ie Emeril Lagasse, and just knows damn near the biggest names in the acting/music scene, it's quite extraordinary all this one guy was able to do, not a bad directorial debut for Mike Myers, who knows if he'll direct more movies, but this def showed some potential
Fine documentary about the life and career of Shep Gordon, a longtime entertainment business manager with ties to several big shots in the industry, and a reputation for being one of the nicest and most genuine guys in a world where many folks turn into cynical jerks. It is a lighthearted film and a decent tribute to Gordon, directed by comedian and actor Mike Myers.
