Thomas Peyser
Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

A joyful film, full of men and women alight with the pleasure that comes from negating every compliment civilization has ever paid itself.

A plethora of comedians discuss and tell their own inspired rendition of "the dirtiest joke in the world" in a contagiously funny documentary that symptomatically gives context to the lasting influence of vaudeville humor.

Each take on the gag reveals a different facet of comic technique.

The first feel-good movie made out of fecal matter.

Its very about-itself unimportance is what makes it a liberating experience for its own sake.

...the brilliant Sarah Silverman transcends the mean-spirited nature of the joke...

Sacramento News & Review

In its simplest form, the joke isn't funny; it's all in the telling, and Provenza proves once again that some people can tell a joke, and some people can't.

This all-star open-mike night loses its luster before its own loud laughter dies down.

With a showman's respect for the power of the build-up, Provenza touts his product thoroughly before unveiling it.

... The Aristocrats proves that sometimes you don't have to be a great filmmaker to make a great documentary.

A brilliant solution to the eternal problem of how to discuss the creative process behind comedy without becoming boring.

Cinema em Cena

Mesmo que repetitivo ao procurar analisar o significado social da graça da piada e contendo algumas performances terrivelmente medíocres, o filme ganha um fôlego invejável sempre que algum comediante inspirado surge em cena.

Laughs of discomfort or of the 'ewwww gross' variety are not really the same as good hearty laughs. You'll need a shower afterwards.

It's not just a joke for the john, it's a joke for an entire sewage system.

There's an unevenness to the film, and, frankly, I rarely found it funny, but I never found it less than fascinating and invariably entertaining.

For those of us who can handle a heaping helping of shock talk, the reward of The Aristocrats lie in our ability to focus a critical spotlight on ourselves.
