Witty, insightful, and hilarious., 14 October 2000
Author: Matt..377 from United States

One of the best stand up comedy concert films: a showcase of budding comedians introduced by the king of the one-liners himself: Mr. Rodney Dangerfield.

Almost a complete treat from start to finish, the only declivity being Andrew Dice Clay's sexist, racist, and homophobic monologue (which contribute heavily to the film's NC-17 rating); a precurser for his later DICE RULES.

Aside from Clay's puerile, scarcely-a-chuckle routine, an exceptional compilation of the wittiest comedians--and comedienne--around; along with Rodney, Larry Clarke is a particular standout.

*** out of ****.

Rated NC-17 for explicit language. (1991 re-rating; originally rated X in 1987)
