The Hollywood Reporter
Obscene, disgusting, vulgar and vile, The Aristocrats might be the funniest movie you'll ever see.
83
Entertainment Weekly
The Aristocrats has a lot of laughs, but as it giggles and blasphemes its way into areas not so far removed from the scandalous landscape of the Marquis de Sade, the movie, funny as it is, becomes exhausting and a bit depressing.
80
Film Threat
An essential for all serious humor fans who don't mind verbal grossness of the most extreme sort.

New York Magazine (Vulture)
Gloriously filthy, ramshackle, endearing documentary.
80
Variety
A raucous insider documentary that invites the viewer to share a secret held exclusively by comics for untold generations.
75
Killer-funny documentary.

The A.V. Club
A surprisingly fresh and funny feature-length look at an unrelentingly filthy vaudeville gag that's been passed down from comic to comic like an urban legend, often changing with every telling.

L.A. Weekly
Delicious fun, indeed, but it doesn't really require a large screen. Please send me a copy of the DVD.

Village Voice
The Aristocrats is a veritable talent show itself, albeit one that feels inescapably slight. To rejigger another ancient joke: The food at this place isn't terrible. But the portions are really small.
50
Mighty monotonous after a while.
