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."

Promos for this film promised a film with no violence or nudity but tons of bad language. However, Penn Jillette had to add blurring to the private parts of a "friend" sharing a jacuzzi with one of the comedians in order to fulfill this promise. 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.

Don't believe the hype. This movie is awful. Imagine being surrounded by 100 comics laughing about one long, bad inside joke. You will feel like an outsider the whole time the comics basically talk about a joke that is not even funny.
It is painful to watch so many comics NOT being so funny. This movie feels like a movie for comics and comics only. After the 50th cutaway in 20 minutes you will find yourself, 1. a little dizzy, and 2. wondering what all the fuss is about.
The hype this movie has received is way out of touch. I can only imagine the reviewers gave it respect for "being different". But in reality is is trash.
The joke is on you. Don't rent this movie.
