Heckler

"Heckler Trailer"

This actually looks brilliant to me. I can't wait to see it. This could be the first thing Jamie Kennedy has done that I may actually like.

In a way, this movie is kinda about us... armchair critics.

If the trailer vid doesn't show up, here's a link: http://myspacetv.com/index.cfm?fusea...deoid=29259778

Wow. That looks awesome. I'll definitely pick this up sight unseen. I wish more annoying celebs would accept and embrace their shame as Kennedy obviously has.

Re: Heckler

I picked this up at Hollywood video for $1 - it's an interesting documentary but I would recommend against buying it, it's not something you will want to watch again. Basically it's Jamie Kennedy whining about how stupid hecklers are, interspersed with some really neat film clips of standup comedians dealing with hecklers as well as things like some guy named Jim Everett attacking an interviewer for calling him Chris Elliot.

There is a DVDTalk review of it that I agree with, by Brian Orndorf: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/34413/heckler/

and for what it's worth, I'm a big fan of the Jamie Kennedy Experiment (a hidden camera show that ran for three years in the early '00s).

Re: Heckler

I'd have to agree with you. Aside from the first segment or two, where they talk about, and show clips of, hecklers, the rest is kinda boring. Once they started getting into blasting film critics I tuned out.

Re: Heckler

This would have been a great movie if it was just comedians telling stories about times they were heckled, like the first 20 minutes of the movie or so. Once it turns into an unfocused rampage from Jamie Kennedy about how he doesn't like it when people criticize anything he does, it gets boring very fast.

Exactly. I didn't need to see Jamie Kenedy trying to convince some kid that "Malibu's Most Wanted" is a good film. His films are shit, he needs to accept it.

Agreed. I bought the dvd blindly and was quite disappointed. Now, it sits there on my shelf, virtually heckling me.
