The Aristocrats  AUG 08 2005  rating: 3.0 stars

For a movie about a joke, The Aristocrats didn't have me laughing as hard as I thought it would. The problem lies with the joke itself...I didn't think it was funny and every time someone said the punchline, I felt I was supposed to laugh but never did. Made me uncomfortable. Like when you're in a room with a bunch of Simpsons/Monty Python/South Park geeks and you're the only one not laughing at the all of the references being thrown around. Highlights were Kevin Pollack's telling as Christopher Walken and Sarah Silverman's version, but at no time did I pee my pants laughing.

perfectly dry pants

See, prefectly dry. Note: Not my actual pants. (Or hands.)
