Movie Info

Comedian Eddie Griffin delivers a set of his outrageous standup comedy and introduces his fans to the family who helped inspire his work in this documentary. In DysFunKtional Family, Griffin talks about race, sex, cats, dogs, slavery, terrorism, Michael Jackson, and several of the more eccentric members of his family during a sold-out live show. In between bits, Griffin takes us on a tour of his home town of Kansas City, where we get to meet his mother, who has a remarkable enthusiasm for corporal punishment; his uncle, who discusses his remarkable enthusiasm for pornography; and another uncle, who proved to be an invaluable help to Griffin's early career despite his drug habit and career as a pimp. DysFunKtional Family was directed by George Gallo, who previously worked with Griffin on the comedy Double Take.

For every bit that's flatly derivative ... there's another that connects.

... Griffin's social commentary is just as piercing and hilarious as the autobiographical stuff.

One of the funnier and, in an odd way, disturbing stand-up concert films in a long while.

Highlights some of the best, and raunchiest, of [Griffin's] humor.

Top Critic

The cross-cutting feels too casual and is mostly executed in a jarringly random fashion.

Top Critic

The pacing, the leather suit, the raspy speed rap. Chris Rock and others do it, and as long as Griffin sticks with the shtick he doesn't have much to add.
