100 comedians walk into a talent agent's office...

I just saw "The Aristocrats". I saw it in the quaint little movie theatre at Redmond Town Center. I dig the little movie theatre, it's shown me movies about Enron, about parrots, and now it's shown me a movie about the filthiest joke in show business.

A few of the names that I recognized in this movie:
Jason Alexander, Hank Azaria, Lewis Black, Drew Carey, George Carlin, Carrot Top, Billy Connolly, Tim Conway, Andy Dick, Phyllis Diller, Carrie Fisher, Whoopi Goldberg, Gilbert Gottfried, Eric Idle, Dom Irrera, Eddie Izzard, Wendy Liebman, Bill Maher, Michael McKean, Larry Miller, Martin Mull, Kevin Nealon, "The Onion" Editorial Staff, Penn & Teller, Emo Philips, Kevin Pollak, Paul Reiser, Andy Richter, Don Rickles, Chris Rock, Rita Rudner, Bob Saget, Harry Shearer, Sarah Silverman, The Smothers Brothers, Jon Stuart, Rip Taylor, Bruce Vilanch, Fred Willard, Robin Williams, Steven Wright, and the kids from South Park.

It's the filthiest, funniest, feel-good documentary of the year. And probably ever. Prove me wrong.

And, I'm amazed, but I now have respect for Gilbert Gottfried that I never thought I'd have.

This movie has got more profanity per minute than anything I've ever seen. And it's not people having a hard time coming up with descriptive interjections - it's dirty words actually referring to substances, body parts, actions, and ideas that don't find a place in polite conversation. And something that amused me - there's a bit where we almost saw some nudity, but out of modesty, there was digital blurring. Thank you.

You may not care for this movie. For myself, I loved it. Can't wait for the DVD.
