If you were expecting an actual comedy concert film, however, you've got another thing coming.

After a while the movie's inside chumminess and the overgrown-boy schtick start to wear thin, making me wonder whether Sarah Silverman or Margaret Cho might consider filming a sequel with a busload of neurotic girlfriends.

Even if you're a Vaughn fan, you'll have more fun watching him promote Wild West on talk shows than watching the film itself.

There's a reason this lackluster documentary...has languished on the shelf since its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2006...

A 2 1/2-year-old collection of mediocre stand-up routines and dull backstage chatter, Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show demonstrates why comedy clubs require you to have a couple of drinks.

Only sporadically wild, but it does indeed go through some Western states. It also ends up feeling about as long and draggy as the title itself.

A good concert film might have been culled from Vaughn's 30-date LA-to-Chicago tour... But this is more like a DVD extra for that film

You get four decent comics plucked from obscurity and given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play big venues packed with eager fans who would probably have roared at a 20-minute set by Alan Greenspan if Vaughn had deigned to give him his blessing.

An opportunity to see bad comics live without a two-drink minimum.

Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show imagines itself a contemporary equivalent of rootin'- tootin' traveling entertainments like Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. That's a tall comparison to draw.

The tour stops may have been successful, as Vaughn claims, but the documentary of it comes off more as a well-intentioned vanity production than the career launching pad he envisioned.

Good enough for an HBO special. But for a full-blown movie? No way.

About 30 comedy shows and could have been interesting for maybe 30 minutes. But it goes beyond that, until the actor and his far less charismatic buddies get on your 30th nerve.

Even at 100 minutes, this documentary about Vaughn and pals' 2005 bus tour from L.A. to Chicago (and all points in between, oy) plays a little long.

Stand-up tour doc offers laughs and amusing surprises, but doesn't justify a runtime as long as its title.

It's almost like you're watching a 100-minute trailer for a much better six-hour miniseries.

This is stand-up comedy here. Bring the funny and leave the rest on the bus.
