We will warn you upfront. This movie contains some really disturbing language and will push everyone to the edge of comfort and beyond!

We are quite easy-going in terms of language and humor, yet several times in this film we felt really creeped out, both by what some people found funny and - much worse - by some things we found funny.

The Aristocrats is indeed an old, old joke. The premise is that there is an vaudville act that consists of a family engaging in some really questionable actions - some disgusting, some creepy, some bloody, some just wrong. The name of the act is "The Aristocrats". The obviously inappropriate name is the punch line.

In this we hear over one hundred comedians talk about this joke, and many offer us their version of it. Finding out what some people come up with, or find funny, is a most interesting process. Again, although we liked this movie, we are going to again warn you AGAIN, if you are the LEAST BIT SENSITIVE ABOUT LANGUAGE OR HUMOR you will NOT find this a funny movie.
