Griffin's paean to beating your children is more than a little disturbing.

Having really enjoyed "Undercover Brother," I went out of my way to catch this film and ended up laughing so hard, I cried at times.

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

Offensive is easy. Daring takes brains. And brains seem to be in short supply here -- almost in as short supply as laughs and audiences.

Interminable going, not only because the forward momentum of Griffin's stand-up is routinely interrupted by annoying side trips to visit his porno-loving uncle or his cringing mom, but also because Griffin's material just isn't that funny.

Griffin's family is fascinating and real, and his comedy, while it can be caustic, has a positive spirit.

One of the funnier and, in an odd way, disturbing stand-up concert films in a long while.
April 4, 2003
Highlights some of the best, and raunchiest, of [Griffin's] humor.
April 4, 2003
Far too much of Griffin's routine is just that -- routine.
April 4, 2003
The cross-cutting feels too casual and is mostly executed in a jarringly random fashion.
