A quick movie review

I bought The Aristocrats this weekend. I really wanted to see it when it was in theatres but unfortunately I live somewhere near the ass end of the world and it didn't play here. All in all I have to say I was a bit disappointed, I don't think the movie lived up to the hype. I found it to be overly repetitive, even more so than a documentary about one joke should be. It does have some great moments in it, Sarah Silverman and Gilbert Gottfried stand out as masters of their craft, they both have such excellent timing and delivery that I'm sure they could get huge laughs reading the phone book. The clip of the kids from South Park doing the joke is as laugh out loud funny as anything that they do on the show. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

I've been waiting to see this one for ages!
By the way... can I borrow your copy?

Of course you can, I think I told you before that you could borrow my DVD of the first season of Bullshit! as well. You can see if it's physically possible to OD on Penn & Teller.

I think I could sit and watch Penn and Teller from now until the end of time and no OD.
I loves them, I loves them good.
