humorous portrait of a tremendously funny man

sure, get bruce is pretty funny, but it trips a bit...the film begins with the typical "bunch of people talking about the subject." this does not work. i found myself bored and thinking i was going to make a big mistake.

"get bruce" is at its best when it shows the subject (a guy who writes jokes for celebs) at work. the scenes where bruce is working one on one with billy crystal, whoopi goldberg, robin williams, et al, are some of the laugh-out-loud funniest things i've seen in a long time. and i don't even like robin williams.

sadly, when all these portraits are done, the directors scope pans out again and tries to make general statements about the subject. here, he again fails. perhaps it would have been funnier had the filmmakers consulted bruce.

The true voice of what's funny at award shows

I see here nobody's posted a comment about this terrific flick for almost 6 years! Shame on those who've seen it, loved it and not written. Bruce Vilanch is a walking, talking cartoon of a man, as he'd probably be the first to admit. When he locks horns with so many talents, big and not so big, magic happens.

Bruce contributes to virtually every awards program you can think of and if you laughed at all during one of these shows, there's a pretty good chance he first wrote the joke or helped punch it up. His life as a born showman took him from student theatre on the East coast to Chicago to LA and almost everywhere in between. Bette Midler, Billy Crystal and Robin Williams, to name just three, are performers who's careers would be significantly less bright if they hadn't met this patron saint of the T-shirt and biting one liner.

Bruce's emotions go all over the map in this film, from the joy and pain of gags working wonderfully well or bombing like napalm filled misfires. And his humanity is on prominent display, as his charity work gets heartbreaking attention too.

Get "Get Bruce" if you haven't already seen it!

A terrible film about a terrible man

what a terrible film and what a terrible man. this is one of the worst pieces of hollywood self-serving, syrupy nonsense i've ever had the misfortune to watch.

it's fair enough when the egg-producers all get together and buy "Eat more eggs" campaigns. if this is the best the Bruce Vilanch Marketing Board can come up with...

i have long thought of hollywood as being so capable of parodying itself that external parody was unnecessary and this just confirms my belief.

if i didn't know better, i'd think i was watching a Mr. Show sketch parodying Bruce Vilanch. i wish...

if you like watching sincerity so contrived it's appalling in its insincerity, 'fly on the wall' segments about the comedy process so contrived they're hard to watch and hollywood celebrities generally patting each other on the back to extreme, don't hesitate to rent this - you'll love it.

i think even the most devoted Bruce Vilanch fan will be made nauseous by the awful song that plays out over the closing credits.

Get Bruce? get lost...
