Plot Summary
Following a string of artistic and personal setbacks -- including a widely publicized run-in with the police -- bad boy of comedy Martin Lawrence returns to his stand-up roots in a solo show that exposes his uncensored views on career, relationships, society and the media. Filmmaker David Raynr is on hand to document Lawrence's January 2002 performance at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., interspersing the comedian's raunchy, curse-laden monologues with candid behind-the-scenes footage.

  • While the impulse for his concert may have been confession and atonement, the cumulative effect is one of a guy struggling mightily to reconcile his divided self. show more

  • A movie that is not only achingly funny but also full of serious and philosophical truisms. show more

  • If it proves nothing else, this movie establishes that it is impossible for a film to get the NC-17 rating from the MPAA for language alone. This takes the trophy for dirty talk, and I've seen the docs by Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and Andrew Dice Clay. show more
