Perhaps everyone who takes a long road trip with their friends should bring a video camera to capture memories. Whether, like Vince Vaughn, you believe these home movies are worth putting in movie theatres is another question.
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.
Its full title may be unwieldy and its humor a tad colorful for a family audience, but Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show is surprisingly endearing and chock-full of a genuine appreciation of the moment.
Unfortunately, the four comics on the road trip are about on the level of your average Last Comic Standing contestant -- competent and just mildly funny, but unremarkable. Definitely no future Bill Hicks or Richard Pryor in the lot.
There are moments of performing brilliance in Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days, 30 Nights -- Hollywood to the Heartland; there is enough intimacy with the characters that we care about what happens.
Director Ari Sandel, who made an Academy Award-winning short film, West Bank Story, shows generous portions of each comedian's performance. Students of the art will be interested in the commentary the performers provide.
The delight stems from the quartet of lesser known comics Vaughn chose to place at the movie's center, as well as the unpretentious way we learn so much about them--their motives, pains, struggles and revealing ethnic and class backgrounds.
