Comedy veterans and co-creators Penn Jillette and Paul Provenza capitalize on their insider status and invite over 100 of their closest friends--who happen to be some of the biggest names in entertainment, from George Carlin, Whoopi Goldberg and Drew Carey to Gilbert Gottfried, Bob Saget, Paul Reiser and Sarah Silverman--to reminisce, analyze, deconstruct and deliver their own versions of the world's dirtiest joke, an old burlesque too extreme to be performed in public, called "The Aristocrats."

According to his biography, "I'm Chevy Chase and You're Not", Chevy Chase filmed a version of the joke as well. However, at the last second he decided not to sign the release form as he was afraid of what his daughters would think of the joke's content. See more »
The joke leads me down one path and then it switches the path on me suddenly and hits me with a hammer. It's just, "Here we go folks."

After the credits, this appears on screen: "Now that you know the joke - keep it alive, spread it around. It's easy. 'A guy goes into a talent agent's office...' All you have to remember is ONE word." Then, Paul Provenza and Penn Jillette are standing among a group of goats and say "Aristocrats!" while doing the hand flourish that Drew Carey invented.

If you're 12 and dorky, then this movie is for you!!!
I've lost so much respect for all of the esteemed comedians that appeared in this film. They all got so caught up in the moment of trying to be cool and forgot to be funny. It's not funny to say "bad" words for no good reason. (or at least not since 6th grade) It was like watching a bunch of dorks sitting around telling an "inside joke" that was never really very funny anyway.The other thing I really hated about this movie was the horrible editing. The clips were cut too short and it was just annoying to watch. The one portion that didn't make me want to start a new crossword puzzle was the segment with The Smother's Brothers. All in all I would suggest doing anything else rather than watch this snore of a movie.
