Not a comedy. Not a bad thing.
The Aristocrats is not a funny joke.
This is a fact admitted at several points through this film. And it’s an important thing to bear in mind when considering the film, because the film is not the joke. The film is *about* the joke. It’s a documentary. It deals with far more light-hearted matter than the average documentary, but it’s a documentary nonetheless. Yes, the joke is told frequently and in various ways throughout the film. But in and of themselves, only about four incarnations of the joke are worthwhile. Billy The Mime’s version is inspired, the guy who does it with playing cards is clever, Gilbert Gottfried’s is a masterpiece of saying precisely the wrong thing at the right time, and Sarah Silverman’s first-person rendition lies perfectly between deadpan hilarity and abject horror.
The value of the film lies in the story of the joke. And in this regard, it stands as one of the funniest films ever made. The joke isn’t something to be told at the dinner table. It’s a challenge, told by comedians to comedians. And this is where the hundred or so comedians in this film come in, to tell us their own stories and experiences about the inception and reception of it – and of course, to do this it becomes necessary for one or two of them to provide their own interpretations. And so it goes on.
As a comedy, it’s not that funny; it is, in a very literal sense, a one-joke movie. As a documentary, it’s genius.
Class Act? You Tell Me
I not only knew the premise of this movie I also knew the joke – and I use the word loosely – at the core of it. I heard it as a teenager but compared to the versions on offer here what I heard was highly sanitized even involving as it did four incestuous couplings between a man and wife, the wife and her son, the son and his sister, the father and his daughter, all of which would take place in a legitimate theatre before a paying audience; when asked the name of the act the husband/father – who was trying to sell it to a booking agent – replied ‘The Four Sophisticates’. Today it’s known as the Aristocrats and anything goes, the grosser the better. Essentially in this movie a couple of dozen comedians, more than half of which are completely unknown to me – and I consider myself pretty well informed – take this basic premise and improvise around it adding people, animals, inanimate objects at will. On average about one in five is funny despite the grossness, the others are just gross. As usual Billy Wider said it better than most; when speaking of the celebrated Ten Unfriendly Witnesses at the HUAC Hearings he said, quote, one had talent, the rest were just unfriendly, unquote. So, alas, is it here albeit with a strike rate just a tad higher.
