The Aristocrats

This is the title of a documentary released last year. For those of you who don't know, it is about one joke; the comedians joke in fact. By this, I mean that it is the joke that always gets told when comedians get together. The entire movie is about this one joke! Ok, there is more to it than that. What you don't know is that everyone has their own version. Through the course of an hour and a half you here a bunch of the versions. Some of the coolest parts are actually hearing all of these famous comedians telling about their favorite version or from the funniest teller of the joke. The first half of the movie, I am basically stunned and intrigued. Somewhere in the middle I got to this version of the joke that i essentially end up in the floor holding my stomach. The guy who played Ira on Mad About You is telling the joke actually doing his impression of Christopher Walken telling the joke. Other funny ones are the south park version, Sara Silverman (who by the way is smoking hot), and Gilber Godfrey. Believe me, I can't stand Gilbert Godfrey as much as the next guy, but the story of him telling it is really hilarious. I have to tell you this is a movie for a lot of people for a lot of reasons. It is a movie for people who love how movies are put together. Or it is a movie for people who love REALLY, REALLY dirty jokes. As filthy as it is, i gotta reccomend it.
