Both Funny And Moving
15 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Mortified Nation is a pretty fun little documentary. It's kind of part documentary and part comedy show. It will make you laugh, relate, but it will also move you. It didn't exactly blow me away or bring anything new to the table, but it does work.

The whole idea is that there's a live show called Mortified that is in different major cities across the United States where people get up on stage and read their humorous and embarrassing diary entries from when they were kids and teens. It exposes that point in a persons life where they are figuring out who they are. There's a mix of interviews of the performers and show creators, and the actual performances. These performances are always funny, but range from the laugh out loud story of a teen who keeps trying to convince himself that he's NOT gay, even after having a sexual encounter with another guy, to a girl whose mother was abusive (but the humorous side is still there).

At the end of the film, you will have laughed a lot, but you'll probably feel better about your past embarrassing situations. It kinda shows that stuff like that, and even hard times, eventually will become something that doesn't matter anymore, and perhaps you can even laugh about it. Or maybe not.
