Even when some of his material has a "been there, heard that" sense to it, Griffin's outbursts of charisma help elevate the overall presentation.

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.

... Griffin's social commentary is just as piercing and hilarious as the autobiographical stuff.
April 7, 2003
A fun if not particularly revelatory slice of entertainment, Griffin's concert film seems largely designed only to shock with vulgarity without searching for the deeper 'why' behind the jokes.

Griffin's keen wit, coupled with director Gallo's sense of pacing & alternating stage and offstage material makes this more than a concert film.

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.

The special fun of this stage concert film, apart from a lot of mostly good (and mostly very practiced) material, is in how far Griffin erases the line between himself and his public ego.

Offers edgy, irreverent and very funny humor from hot young comic Eddie Griffin -- and provides just enough background footage to help you understand where it all comes from.

You've got to be impressed by the seeming effortlessness with which KC native Griffin works his audience at a Chicago theater, prowling the stage like some big comedy panther and dropping laugh detonations.

Griffin is quick, smart and funny, and presents the critics with the usual challenge in reviewing a comedy concert: What do you write about, apart from quoting his funniest lines?

When he isn't checking himself -- or falling back on material that Mr. Pryor should receive royalties for because unimaginative comics have traded on it so often -- Mr. Griffin's journeyman efforts prove rock solid.

It's the hometown footage that really stands out amid the stand-up. With material like that, Griffin and family may have a pilot for a new reality show on their hands.
