The film succeeds in reflecting the weird sweetness in Pepitone.

This loving portrait of the angst-ridden comedian should well lift his profile.

The film's unvarying lack of drama or direction can be wearing, but the schlubby originality of its subject fully repays the longueurs.

By turns robustly amusing and wistfully melancholy.

Eddie Pepitone, perhaps the funniest stand-up comedian you've never heard of, gets a deserving close-up in the amusing, freewheeling documentary "The Bitter Buddha."

The Bitter Buddha strains a little too hard for dramatic heft, but it's nevertheless a compelling, sweet, funny valentine to a comic's comic and a true American original.

The Bitter Buddha is very funny, and for all its bitterness, Eddie Pepitone's comedy is a taste that's easy to acquire.
