Critic Reviews for Certifiably Jonathan
For a movie literally about "finding the funny," it's ironic that director Jim Pasternak too rarely does in his fitfully lively but mostly awkward mockumentary "Certifiably Jonathan."
Jonathan Winters is a fine and funny fellow, and deserves better than this.
Fortunately, Winters' legendary inventiveness as a comedian has not diminished with the years.
Observing his subject both on and off medication (Mr. Winters says he is bipolar), Mr. Pasternak has produced a film that feels depressingly exploitative.
Faux documentary about the legendary comedian squanders the rich potential of its subject.
Audience Reviews for Certifiably Jonathan
Thought this was going to be a documentary. It's a "fake" documentary that never makes the natural leap to mockumentary... so it sits uncomfortably straddling both sides... fully committing to neither.
