Q: What’s the movie about?
A: An unflinching look at Joan Rivers' rise to fame, and her desperate attempt to stay there until the day she kicks the bucket.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers, Larry A. Thompson, Bari Pearlman, Edgar Rosenberg, Kathy Griffin, Don Rickles, Johnny Carson, Ed Sullivan, Donald Trump,
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Go! Joan Rivers clearly did this movie to prove that she's still funny, and guess what? She is.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: It's possibly the most genuinely funny movie I've seen this year... but you have to be up for a crass old lady making anal sex jokes.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: She is so damn insecure!.... But as we funny people know, that's where comedy comes from... Pain.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: No, because the Best Old Lady Comeback of the year has already gone to Betty White.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: I learned from this movie that Joan Rivers will say yes to any offer.... I also learned that despite the ugly stigma she comes with, she really can act. So, Quentin Tarantino, we're counting on you to bring her back and legitimize her.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: For a documentary, there are a lot of seemingly candid shots with soft, flattering lighting.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: The footage is seamlessly edited, flowing between the present day story of Joan trying to stay relevant, and the history of her sordid past. What I can't help but wonder is, where is that old senile, spacey and incoherent Joan who used to ask crazy and embarrassingly irrelevant questions on the red carpet, not 5 years ago? This version of her is not only coherent, she's got enough brains and quick wit for everyone in the room.
Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?
A: It turns out that Johnny Carson was as much of a douchebag as Jay Leno... so maybe he is the right host to carry on the legacy of the Tonight Show.
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
