Surprise. This funny doc starts out as a love in with GG. We meet his lovely wife and charming children. We re-visit a stellar career of a unique “character” created. When Howard Stern treats you with respect on his radio show you know you’ve made it. You’re untouchable. I was unprepared about the ‘the tweets” – freedom of speech, and its unavailability to comics today, rears its ugly head a la Kathy Griffin, in an anal, helicopter parent entitled society…or should I say audience….or both. Even Aunty Tom Whoopi joins in to kick GG when he is down. So is this is a doc or a spin job damage control project? Like Hugh Hefner, maybe GG wants to protect his legacy, since his millions are square in the bank. It’s a hell of story with a twist of redemption in the end – a gig at a Cancer Hospital fundraiser. The key to success is to offend as many people as possible. You may be lonely at the top…..but you’ll eat better. Thank you and good night!
