  • The Aristocrats

    Anyone else familiar with this flick? It sounds hilarious. It's a simple premise; several known comedians give their take and tell the same dirty joke, a joke with the same idea but with different specifics. Now this joke has been around for several decades and is knows to be the filthiest, dirtiest, most disgusting joke ever.
    The list of comedians performing in this film is impressive. Opens in LA and NY on July 29th and goes wider in August.
    Here's the official website and trailer:

    And for those of you interested in the joke, here is one example:

    This isn't the Howard Johnson's.

    Seeing this over the weekend with a friend who does stand-up. Should be fun.

      It is an AWESOMELY funny movie. I saw it at Sundance and again when it premiered in Las Vegas. It is not for the faint fo heart because it is chock full of scatalogical humor but if you are game you will hurt yourself laughing. Carlin is hysterical, Saget is the dirtiest man I've ever seen and it will give you a whole new respect for Gilbert Gottfried. Plus the mime is worth the price of admission alone!

        I'm very curiuos about the film. It seems like a great experience. I have a friend who saw it and said it was hilarious. Definitely seems like the kinda thing you need to see to get an idea of its value. I doubt a trailer can do this type of film justice.

              Perhaps I expected too much. Don't get me wrong, I laughed ... a lot. But it wasn't as funny as I had hoped for. I mean 90 minutes of f-cked in the a$$ and fisted her c-nt and sh-t in his mouth and I was pretty much over it. Ready for a new joke. Don't need to see it again. I got the joke the 23rd time.

                  The raw nature of it drowned out the laughs for me. Gilbert stole the picture in my opinion. The mime and the card guy were also funny. Nice bit at the end by one of the Carol Burnett players, too.

                    It doesn't surprise me that Saget gets big laughs in this film. His stand-up back in the day was fairly raw.

                      Saw it at CineVegas. Liked it, but it could have been just as good at one hour.

                        I liked what it had to say about comedy. I enjoy a good "serious" discussion about comedy.
