Not at all what I expected

I stay up late and watch a lot of Netflix. I love stand up comedy and had exhausted Netflix supply when as a last resort I clicked on Jim Breuer's "More Than Me". I truly was not a fan of Breuer's comedy, truth be told I still am not. I have a dry sense of humor and Breuer is an in your face, silly kid of guy. Never the less, Jim Bruer gained a fan tonight. I admire him as a wonderful human being with a tender heart and as a great family man. Having cared for an elderly parent, I could really relate to Jim's circumstances. The show is not really about comedy at all. It is about his relationship with his Dad, it is about life and love and family. It is about growing up and growing old. I loved the show, it was a beautiful story of father and son connecting . Jim Breuer may not make me laugh, but tonight he made me cry. I highly recommend this film.

I really enjoyed

I thought this documentary was excellent and would happily recommend to anyone. I had not heard anything about the film or saw any advertising. Im a big fan of documentaries and just happened to add it to my list on Netflix when browsing through new films. I thought it was just a comedy show but found out it was that and some. I'm happy that I watched it on Netflix streaming. I have always thought Jim Breuer was very funny. This documentary is a great mix of laughter and thoughtfulness. It is definitely worth viewing and will remind you to slow down and think about important things in life. I know it did for me. Also I have to mention music was really nice as well. Keep up the great work!

First let me say that I have watched this movie about three times, and have enjoyed it each time. This is more than simply a story of a comic who takes his aging father on the road, but more of one about the purest love that exists on this planet, and the dynamic of parent and child and how roles can reverse in life, and the way as humans we approach it. Also, Jim Breuer is one of my favorite stand up comedians, yet shows another side to his character as a son, a man and a caregiver. I will say when Jim was speaking about his father, I broke down multiple times crying. I am about to have to do this same thing with my father who has had a stroke with nobody to care for him. My brother has stepped up to the plate, and we will all do what we can. This is the way life should be. Also, do a Google search about Jim Breuer and his father. What a great human being, and a great comic. I would call this a drama documentary. Good job Jim. A must see for all.

I stumbled upon this movie in a boredom moment wanting a quick laugh before bed time in the stand up comedy section. What I got was far from that. One of the most engaging, relate-able, heartfelt movies I have ever seen. I am a 30 year old male and do not cry easily but let me tell you this movie pulled at my last heartstrings. It really shows how important family is and how love should work. This movie motivates me to be a better son, father, and person in general. One of the biggest movie surprises of my life. This is a fantastic documentary. Really changed my views on a lot of things including Jim Breuer. This guy is extremely smart and knows what he is doing. He reminds me of my brother. He is goofy on stage but he has gained my respect forever. In fact I would like to be more like him in the he puts his life and family in perspective. This movie is unbelievable from beginning to end and seems to get better by the second. A big surprise but one that i'm genuinely grateful for.

Not a comedy special.

Actually documentary doesn't contain stand up material pretty much at all. It's more about his almost 90yo dad he decides to drag on his stand up tour. 95% of documentary is him walking him slowly around, dressing and undressing him and gagging on him smelly dumps. His dad is old school dude who doesn't show any emotions or barely even speaks. Guess those long scenes them walking around and climbing stairs with tear jerking acoustic guitar soundtrack didn't really touch me at any level. What is the purpose of this documentary? Pointing out that people don't live forever, so send some time whit them before its too late and help them out? Guess that should be obvious to everyone. I got distant feeling this was bit self glorifying bit how he hangs with her dad even that he is rich and doesn't really need to.

In a nut cell I didn't get any laughs or tears out from this documentary even that I like the guy.

A for effort, mournful concept.

Judging by there being no reviews and the show being more then 2 years old this is to say that it was a total flop, I just watched one of the episodes of Current TV network (yes Current), and Current gets all the disaster shows that offend many viewers like S.W.A.T Miami-Dade and Young Turks, shows nobody watches, nobody cares about and are incredibly weird, now I don't want to discourage the Star because I do completely sympathize for what he is doing for his ailing elderly father, however; that is the problem, set up for comedy yet this is a rather sad feeling show as he himself remarks many times that his sense of humor has become dark, very cynical and dry. I also do not want to offend you because I feel that if I do, you might go clinically insane, and that can be a fate worse then death. I know what your doing is obscenely hard and doing it willfully may raise some eyebrows already to your level of sanity.

I doubt your father never complained, you present the show as a dismal documentary of elderly care-taking, please proofread this first yourself as you may want to avert his own eyes from any trauma, but he seems plentiful of complaints now, as your adviser from your own quote had mentioned to you, please get some relief, and I promise God will forgive you for placing your father in a retirement home, don't worry we all have our struggles to go through, but you don't have to out of obligation and love, it's comparable to animal hoarding and you did compare your dad to a child many times, which implies psychologically you do need some relief, I understand your struggles and admire as well as relate to your honor and loyalty, but it may be a form of demented preprogramming on behalf of your father.

Appreciate yourself now and continue your generations, your lineage would certainly respect that you wish to prolong it.
