Nothing groundbreaking here, but it was fun to see so many influential comedians be so over the top and vulgar. This film and joke is not for the faint of heart!

A documentary about a joke only gets so good. It is nice to see some big names in comedy comment on the joke.

Proves that a one joke comedy can be both funny and interesting.

Surprisingly funny and entertaining documentary about the art of the comedian built around one joke.

This is the most horrible movie. It focuses on one disgusting, gross awful joke which is not even funny. Avoid this movie like the plague.

Entertaining look at a comedian's comedy classic.

The documentary to watch to learn about the who's who in stand-up comedy. So offensive, so hilarious, not for the young, or proper. You'd think it would get boring hearing the same joke over and over, but it just keeps getting better. The special features on the DVD are also essential, extended takes from the comedians and additional ridiculous jokes will have you hurting from laughter. If you haven't heard of it, give it a try. If you have and think you wouldn't need to see it, you're wrong, just watch it once. Probably my favorite documentary ever.

You need to look past the crass blue humor of the joke itself and focus on context and delivery...there are some really funny bits here. Sarah Silverman is amazing, Bob Saget wasn't as funny as I was hoping, and Gilbert Gottfried is timeless...I can watch the Gottfried segment on YouTube over and over and it never gets old.

An interesting documentary about a constantly disgusting and demented joke, The Aristocrats will quickly run out of steam for those who don't like comedy or those who absolutely hate hearing dirty jokes. But the film is a still a fascinating exploration of how strange and off-putting the mind of a comic can become when no limits are placed on his imagination.

Super funny at times, disgusting always. Amazing lineup of comics! But it is a bit long, and could easily have been just as good in half the time. Anyway, a family walks into a talent agent's office...

Not a huge fan of the way this documentary is set out format wise but other than that it's a joy to watch. Heaps of celebrities telling one unbelievably dirty joke. Definitely a must see for anyone interested in the comedy industry.

Wonderful documentary about humor, shock and shared experiences. It never fails to bring a smile to my face.

You go through so many variations on that classic dirty joke, you'll be able to invent your own once you're done watching this.

An interesting concept.

A fresh breath of FUNNY in an overtly unfunny market - every generation of comedy is represented here, from the late Phyllis Diller all the way to Trey and Matt (who absolutely nail Cartman's version of the joke). 5/5 Recommended bc A hobo walks into a talent agency (wearing an outfit made of used condoms, but that's not important), inadvertently slips on an errantly thrown banana peel, tries to save himself midfall but twists his ankle ultimately causing him to fall over a tablestand and land headfirst into a tiny can of garbage. When the talent agent finally wrests the hobo's head from the garbage can and asks "Sir, are you quite alright?", the hobo feebly replies "The Aristocrats!" Disgusted, the talent agent punches the hobo straight in the face, throws the hobo out the window into a giant garbage bin (conveniently placed right under his window) that contains a veritable s*%$ton of other hobos who are in varying states of decay *some are covered in feces, some in semen, and one unfortunate hobo was trying to chew his way out from under what could only be the remains of his pet Loch Ness monster*. As the hobo weakly tries to wrest himself from the muck of the garbage/burial ground, the talent agent screams at him from four floors above: "FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME, I DON'T F*&%ING UNDERSTAND THAT F&^$ING JOKE!!!!!" The End.
