One minute it's about the comedians, the next it's about the Catskills guest experience, the next about the Jewish immigrant experience and Jewish theatre, and the next about indefatigable Jewish humor itself.
Will do little to crystallize the convoluted picture of how the Catskills had a lasting impact on comedy.
Shapeless and generic.
If you can overlook [the] unfortunate stuff, and a cornball windup, what's left is fascinating and funny.
It answers that age-old question: What happens when a can't-miss subject gets missed?
This engaging documentary about Jewish-American comedians pays homage to the Borscht Belt masters of disrespect who brought their tumultuous, irreverent clowning into the American mainstream during the early days of network television.
Enlightening history lessons and lots of one-liners delivered by yesteryear's stars of tomorrow preserved on vintage footage of yesteryear.
Relaxed, affable look back at the golden age of Jewish resorts of New York's Catskill Mountains.
Where's the joy? Where's the dramatic conflict? Where's the beef? Uh, brisket?
With its cheap Television production values, Karaoke quality soundtrack, and poorly focused narrative, these legendary comedians definitely deserve something better than this.
It's not bad, but it will be a better fit when it eventually ends up on PBS or the History Channel.
It's a must-see for comedy fanatics, supplying an education on the foundation of Jewish humor as a defense mechanism for oppression, brought to life on stage by the industry's sharpest minds.
