Critic Reviews for Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project
Like Scorsese's Casino, in which Rickles had a small role, Mr. Warmth tips its hat to a demolished way of life--Vegas power having transferred from the Mob to the even scarier thugs of corporations.
The dichotomy of Rickles' customary matador-theme entrance and tongue-in-cheek but true theme song "I'm a Nice Guy" captures Rickles' secret of success: you gotta love him.
Landis doesn't buttress Rickles' shtick with anything but smoke and mirrors, and the film falls away like a cheap suit.
Audience Reviews for Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project
Think W.C. Fields meets your dirty grandpa, and you get Don Rickles. Going behind the scenes of Rickles forty year career is a treat, and even a nice glimpse of his act is seen through the eyes of comedians of know him. Emulate him. Love him. It's really an adorable traipse into show biz.
Any Rickles fan will love this.
If you're looking for hot, juicy gossip in Mr. Warmth you're going to be out of luck. Don Rickles doesn't have any buried skeletons in his closet. There's no big surprise other than the fact that in his eighties Don Rickles is still funny as hell, even in a world that is politically correct. Featuring appearances of some of the biggest names in Hollywood (that are still alive) Mr. Warmth is a look at the last of his kind. A great documentary on a guy that is more than Mr. Potato Head.
