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.

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.

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.

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.

While not overtly done, the entire movie explores what America is laughing about at this point in time -- and what people in the heartland don't find funny. Either way, it is illuminating.

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.
