A drunken director makes the film that you are watching
16 March 2006 | by pansyass33See all my reviews

Andy Dick is a comedian's comedian. This is no more apparent than from his work in the film, The Aristocrats, as well as Danny Roane: First Time Director. I saw the film at the Texas film festival, and let me be the first to say it is not for everyone. It is only for those people who have a sense of humor, coupled with an infinite tolerance for oddity. In my opinion it was no more strange than South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut. It takes a type of person without a Politically Correct bone in their body to appreciate this kind of humor.

I also feel I must comment about the allegations of his pedophilia. I mean, it is just not true. And that is what happens when people think before they laugh.

I would also encourage anyone to check out the video section of Andy Dick.com and see how extremely generous Andy is with his genius work.
