The controversial bad-boy of comedy delivers a piercing look at his life, lifting the metaphorical smokescreen that he feels has clouded the public view, commenting on everything from the dangers of smoking to the trials of relationships, and unleashing a nonstop litany of raucous anecdotes, stinging social commentary and very personal reflections about life.

This movie uses the word "fuck" 347 times in its 113 minute run-time, leading to the second most constant use of that word (3.07 times a minute). See more »
Here goes all these rumors writin' about me. I see on the paper, one of'em says "Martin tries to jump out of a plane using his jacket as a parachute." Now ain't that some bullshit! As I'm trying to get my life together, they're gonna write that bullshit. I know damn well you can't jump out no plane using your jacket as a parachute. Shit, I know you got to use your pants.

As a movie, their is minimal sound and visual FX. The soundtrack, though it has some great music, it feels like you're listening to it in mono (even if you're in the middle of a THX, Dolby surround capable theater). This is really sad when you consider this is an MTV production.
The story, Martin's routine, is pretty much the same old stuff. If you're really into "black" comedy, you will get some laughs out of Martin's performance. Especially about his hospital stay. But it's not worth paying for. It should have been a cable special. For me, the funniest part is listening to a Jesus-boy (that's you, Martin) swear, talk about sex, marriage, and relationships, and doing drugs.
