QUICK TAKE:
Documentary: An examination and various examples of a dirty joke previously told only among comedians.
PLOT:
Documentary filmmaker Paul Provenza interviews an assortment of comedians about a dirty joke they traditionally only tell among themselves. The likes of George Carlin, Drew Carey, Paul Reiser, Whoopi Goldberg and many more famous and obscure comedians and non-comedians discuss the old joke and the way in which all comedians improvise the middle section of it, much like a musician might do with a jazz number.
WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet some will, particularly if they're intrigued to hear the joke and/or want to see their favorite comedian tell it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: Not Rated
The film was not submitted to the MPAA for a rating, but it's the equivalent of at least an R and possibly an NC-17 due to graphic/crude language and sexual material.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
All of the comedians and non-comedians appear as themselves, many of which tell very crude and graphic versions of the joke.

(Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
The following is a brief summary of the content found in this documentary that's been released without an official rating by the MPAA (had it been, it would have easily been an R and possibly an NC-17). Profanity consists of at least 100 "f" words and a plethora of other ones, along with colorful phrases. Graphic and sexually explicit dialogue is present throughout the film, mainly in the form of jokes covering a variety of topics designed to be shocking, including incest, bestiality, anal sex, gay sex, sexual bodily fluids and more. A male comedian is briefly seen in a hot tub with a topless woman whose bare breasts are digitized to avoid details, but a male comedian's bare butt is seen on stage as his pants ride down low.

An equal plethora of crude, scatological and otherwise disgusting material is similarly present in many of the jokes, while that material and other bits will likely offend viewers in one fashion or another (and that's the point of telling the joke). Some kids may be enticed to repeat one of the jokes (or accompanying gestures, etc.) from the film, or to make up one of their own. While no violence is present, some of the jokes include descriptions of killing and beatings. Some drinking and a drug related comment are made, while a few people smoke.

Should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home, you may want to look more closely at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, there's some shaky, handheld camerawork present in the film.
