  • "Call Me Lucky" lives up to the irony and accuracy of its title ...

  • "Call Me Lucky" will be an especially grueling ride for those who can identify with Crimmins' trauma. Yet its toughness does not at all diminish its worth. It remains an essential viewing experience.

    August 7, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An earnest homage that also honors Mr. Crimmins's crusade to drive child pornography off the Internet.

  • You'll be the richer for spending time in Crimmins' company, but the material seems better suited to the small screen.

    August 6, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As Goldthwait repeatedly returns to footage of a recent performance by Crimmins, in which he's introduced as a great entertainer, all we see are the aimless rants of a self-righteous blowhard.

    August 6, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • If it accomplishes nothing else, the new documentary Call Me Lucky should bring some welcome attention to a man who's been under the radar for the past few decades, mostly by his own design.

Audience Reviews for Call Me Lucky

  • Dec 31, 2015
    The main reason I watched this documentary was because it was directed by Bobcat Goldwaite. In the past six years he has directed some truly amazing indie films, including "God Bless America," "World's Greatest Dad," and "Willow Creek." Though some of his narratives feel problematic, every one of his films unearths a kooky irony that deals with the human condition in a new, inspiring way. "Call Me Lucky," is Goldwaite's newest film, and it feels like the most personal one yet. Fellow comedian and icon Barry Crimmins is the subject of the film, and though you may believe that this will be a film about the hilarity of Crimmins' career, it becomes clear there's a more sinister subject at the film's heart.
