Critic Reviews for Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
Slickly directed by actor Mike Myers, it intersperses Gordon's sunny reminiscences with testimony from an army of A-list clients and celebrity pals. Admittedly, there are great stories here.
It may leave you asking: Why did I just watch that old guy's birthday tape?
Yes, there is some gravity in the film, but mostly it's the rock-and-roll story of a rock-and-roll life (even though one of his favorite clients was Canadian folk singer Anne Murray).
For all the love emanating from client-pals Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Emeril Lagasse, and Steven Tyler, there's a sadness to this movie that remains just off camera.
Audience Reviews for Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
Very interesting documentary about a man I'd never heard of yet is clearly one of the most influential/popular people in the entertainment world, he helped create/manage Alice Cooper and several other big acts, helped create the entertainment chef ie Emeril Lagasse, and just knows damn near the biggest names in the acting/music scene, it's quite extraordinary all this one guy was able to do, not a bad directorial debut for Mike Myers, who knows if he'll direct more movies, but this def showed some potential
Fine documentary about the life and career of Shep Gordon, a longtime entertainment business manager with ties to several big shots in the industry, and a reputation for being one of the nicest and most genuine guys in a world where many folks turn into cynical jerks. It is a lighthearted film and a decent tribute to Gordon, directed by comedian and actor Mike Myers.
Most of the buzz around this documentary comes from its director: Mike Myers. Out of the spotlight for many years (following several box office bombs) Myers has turned his energy to the world of directing, and in particular to a giant in the industry: Shep Gordon. A man who has managed everyone from Alice Cooper to Emerill Lagasse, this famous manager has a buttload of stories, and is finally given a way to tell them.
