A tedious dud that sparks once or twice with big laughs

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

Vile, vulgar and occasionally funny, The Aristocrats is literally a one joke movie%u2026 I was bored...

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

Take the very sound advice of this film's executive producer and don't see this movie if you've ever been offended by a word.

Everything about the film felt slight.

Choppy editing sabotages the viewer's ability to appreciate the comic's performance, thus undermining what is arguably the movie's chief reason for being.

Did you hear the one about the 100 clueless comics who thought they were hilarious just because they said f--k eighteen times on camera?

86 minutes is a long time to spend dissecting one joke, no matter how outrageously filthy it is.

It takes an extremely open mind and a strong constitution to stomach a lot of this.

A venting of taboos and prejudices by white comics for white comics . . . should be subversive, anti-establishment and thought-provoking, but it's half-witty and half-hearted.

vile and disgusting, ... my audience lapped it up. I didn't go along with the frivolity, but I did groan a lot.
August 13, 2005
After half an hour of variations on a theme, I started to experience gross-out fatigue.

Like The Joke after which it is named, it's easily dismissed.
August 12, 2005
For my taste, the joke is a little too scatological for comfort.
August 12, 2005
It's very funny, but it's also a bit dull.
August 12, 2005
As The Aristocrats repeats its chorus of dirt again and again, one starts to weary. Call it filth fatigue.
August 12, 2005
Provenza and Jillette are too close to the subject. They think it is far more amusing than it is and worth far more time than it does.

Wholly reliant on your affection for volume, repetition, and the individuals involved.
