Popular comic actor Vince Vaughn brings a newly invigorating sense of Old West attitude to the world of standup comedy as he captures the carefree spirit of Buffalo Bill's turn-of-the-century "Wild West Show" on the stage, and the cameras are rolling to capture every belly-shaking laugh in this look at the 30-day, 30-gig tour that featured Vaughn serving as emcee to a wild host of renegade comics that included John Caparulo, Ahmed Ahmed, Bret Ernst, Sebastian Maniscalco, and a whole host of

Good stuff.

The movie's amiable, impulsive, intense, and scattershot, and since those are qualities associated with Vaughn himself, in the end it's a fair representation.

Good enough for an HBO special. But for a full-blown movie? No way.

Perhaps everyone who takes a long road trip with their friends should bring a video camera to capture memories. Whether, like Vince Vaughn, you believe these home movies are worth putting in movie theatres is another question.

After a while the movie's inside chumminess and the overgrown-boy schtick start to wear thin, making me wonder whether Sarah Silverman or Margaret Cho might consider filming a sequel with a busload of neurotic girlfriends.

Its full title may be unwieldy and its humor a tad colorful for a family audience, but Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show is surprisingly endearing and chock-full of a genuine appreciation of the moment.

Vaughn's mischievous imprint hangs over all: slick, irreverent and begging for more -- of what, I'm not sure.

It gets to be a stretch until the tour winds down and you realize you're rooting for these guys to make it, and what a drag it would be if they don't.

It is supposed to be a raucous ride of laughter, but it's thin on one important aspect: the jokes.

Daily Herald (IL)

Along with the comics' constant riffage and the doc's terrific, vintage-country soundtrack, the film's full of joyful moments that pretty much guarantee you'll feel better walking out than you did going in.

Where WERE you? I know, I know. The wind was blowing some ghastly mph and yes, the temperature was well below zero.Still, 'Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show' was worth getting out for.

Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show is a modest documentary that provides a good showcase for these four comedians.

February 17, 2008

The movie's just not all that funny. Vaughn's troopers -- as presented anyway -- are never more than mildly amusing.

Vaughn's star charisma carries much of the weight...their friendships and the charm of the low-key Putting-On-A-Show vibe wears us down into pleasant submission

Too crude in spots, 'Wild West Comedy Show' is still an amusing and revealing documentary about the daring art of stand-up comedy.

Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show succeeds when it focuses in on the comedian's homes off the range.

There's more heart than one might expect in this raunchy romp across America.

You get four decent comics plucked from obscurity and given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play big venues packed with eager fans who would probably have roared at a 20-minute set by Alan Greenspan if Vaughn had deigned to give him his blessing.

Audience Reviews for Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland

While its not nearly as funny as The Comedians of comedy it still gets the job done. Just dont expect Patton or Galifanakis with these standard up and comers.

John Favreau: Anyone could have played your part in Swingers.
[looks to Justin Long]
John Favreau: I could have gotten Herbie the Love Bug over there to play your role.

A documentary following a comedy show put together by Vince Vaughn. Vaughn has assembled a crew of four comedians he is friends with, and takes them on a trip for 30 shows in 30 consecutive nights. He also has some guests that include John Favreau, Justin Long, Dwight Yoakam, and Kier O'Donnell.

While it may be billed as a big comedy movie, there is actually more footage of behind the scenes stuff than actual comics on stage. I found it interesting to see how comics handle different aspects of the stand up life.

The comics themselves are pretty good, some better than others, none really amazing to me or unfunny. Moments involving Vaughn emceeing the show and poking fun at his own fame is some of the more entertaining material.

As mentioned, the behind the scenes stuff takes up most of the film, and while it does make aspects interesting, it would have been nice to actually see at least one full stand up segment.

A good enough documentary, grounded in the lives of stand up comic lives.
