Movie Info

Filmmaker Wayne Price offers an humorous glimpse into the glamorous New York City nightclub scene with this profile of the man who determines just how the rest of your night will ultimately unfold. When a documentary crew sets out to explore the ultra-hip Gotham nightclub scene, they determine that the best guide to have is the man who separates the wannabes from the glamorous elite. Though at first Trevor seems like the perfect guide to the hottest spots in New York and Miami, the filmmakers gradually become savvy to the fact that this self-centered doorman has in fact lost his job and, as a result, his sense of identity. Subsequently prompted to embark on a soul-searching quest to find out who he really is, Trevor confides his deepest, most profound secrets to the film crew in a series of revelations that are sure to send red-rope rejects into fits of laughter.

Critic Reviews for The Doorman

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8)

[Director] Price keeps the humor believably shallow and the movie from getting too far from the aim of chronicling an exclusivity junkie's fall.

September 12, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A mockumentary about the people who run Manhattan nightlife, has solid-gold satire at its cocaine-stained fingertips.

July 18, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Built on an amusing idea that can't quite support an entire movie, Wayne Price's comedic debut might have made a terrific short.

July 18, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A brightly observant comedy of jet-set manners.

Top Critic

Not until the goofy closing credits does the film hit its tonal stride and nail what could have been its saving, salient theme: the absurd lines that fancy people draw (and obey) to make themselves feel special on a Saturday night.

July 16, 2008 | Full Review…

It's not enough to have an English-language-mangling actor bumble improvisationally among real people: You need structure, and situations crafted enough to escalate mild amusement toward hilarity.
