• The Aristocrats - To communicate tastefully the sheer filthiness of the legendary joke at this gonzo documentary's core, one would have to present it in such a way as to render it nearly unintelligible: "A family goes into a talent agent's office and the father says, 'Have I got an act for you.'" From here, the clean version would end up resembling a question on "Match Game", in which Gene Rayburn would extract a key word and substitute it with the word "blank"; "So the father's blanking the mother while the" -- gads, the joke is too dirty to even clean up. Dirty, but funny. So surreally funny that those who do not smash their DVD players in outrage will be heretofore prone to thinking deep and hard about not only why they would laugh at something so patently horrific, but what the very nature of comedy is, too. In this way, director Paul Provenza and producer Penn Jillette have succeeded triumphantly. They have roughly a hundred fellow comics interpret the joke, each personalizing in the time-honored tradition that has kept it alive since its profane birth during the days of Vaudeville. While the punch line is always the same, most of the variegated deliveries defy our expectations, from a mime version to a card trick to Gilbert Gottfried's ultimate telling of this hairy chestnut. Like a traumatic event, witnesses to this glorious depravity will glean additional nuance from repeat viewings. The DVD features 2 extra hours of raunch not seen in the theatrical release.
