Movie Review by BillyBob
March 5th, 2014

More Like A Piece Of Tired, Old, Dehydrated Crap

The first major strike against this vile, narcissistic "piece of work" was clearly Joan Rivers' hideous, surgically-reconstructed, 75-year-old face.

Boy, I'm tellin' ya - This real-life replica of a pure plastic-surgery horror-show gave me the worst case of heebie-jeebies that I've ever experienced. From start to finish, every time Joan's creepy, death-warmed-over face appeared on screen, my skin just crawled, like you wouldn't believe.

The second major strike against this "Phantom of the Opera" freakshow was Joan's whiny, arrogant attitude. After over 40 years in the entertainment business Rivers self-righteously believed that, even now, the world just wasn't paying enough attention to her as the self-proclaimed "Royal Highness of Comedy".

I mean, snippy, little Joan was so bloody convinced that she was "funny" personified that she actually had the gall to claim (more than once) that nobody, absolutely nobody, had the right to disagree with her on this all-important matter.

Rivers practically came right out and said - "I am funny! And I don't allow anyone the freedom to think otherwise! 'Cause if they do, then they are just a fukken, kunt-licking nobody! So, there!"..... (Oh! Really!?)

The only really worthwhile moment in the entirety of this sniveling, self-loving, grate-on-your-nerves documentary took place during a live performance where Joan made a really lame "Helen Keller" joke and a fellow in the audience actually spoke right out and told Rivers that her joke wasn't funny. (Applause! Applause!)

Well, without missing a beat - Joan's immediate response to this dude's valid remark was the vile-mouthed delivery of such a hateful flurry of profanity (directed at this fellow) that it certainly proved to me what an utterly contemptible arsehole-of-comedy that this 75-year-old relic-from-the-grave really was.

It really killed me that inside her immaculately clean & sanitized NYC dollhouse-of-an-apartment, Rivers stores (in neatly stacked cabinets) a vast, A-Z collection of jokes on file-cards. (Spare me, Funny Lady!)

All-in-all - I found Joan Rivers to be a completely hollow shell-of-a-woman who was so utterly consumed by her belief in her apparent "funniness" that she quickly became nothing but a pathetic, tiresome, old bore.

And, with that, I personally proclaim Joan Rivers to be so funny that, yes, you'll forget to laugh.
