Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood to the Heartland Reviews
[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.
John Caparulo: Why didn't I pick you some flowers? Because it's December, there are no fuckin' flowers. I can get you a pine cone...
I really enjoyed the comedy bits, as well as the behind the scenes stuff, which is backed by lots of old country music; always a big selling point for me.
If you're a fan of the people involved, this is well worth a look.
Check it out.

Monkey shit out peanut.
If you enjoy stand-up, I think you'll like it.
