Pretty much what you'd expect.
11 February 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you love the humor of Don Rickles, then this film is for you! It consists of lots of clips from candid interviews with the man, his friends, Hollywood folks who love him as well as clips from his stand- up routine and TV/movie appearances. It's everything Rickles you'd ever want to see or know. You learn about his wife, his mother, his old beloved agent, his friend Harry, his buddy Bob Newhart, Johnny Carson and much much. Throughout, Rickles is naturally very abrasive and silly and you get a bit of a feel as to what it was like in the days of old Vegas. It's all very well assembled and the people making the film obviously had great respect and love for the guy. And, amazingly, years after this was made, Rickles is STILL on the road entertaining folks! Well worth seeing.
