In this documentary, Jamie Kennedy tells that film critics could create a mission of giving "constructive criticism," that is, instead of just telling that a film sucked, tell why it was terrible and what should have been done to create it better. This is one of the parts that I accept with, so I'll test to do that here.The first 20 mins or so were exactly what the DVD cover and game claim to be- a documentary about how stand-up comedians deal with hecklers. Listening to the comedians' fight stories and ways of dealing with hecklers is hilarious and a fascinating subject.But then the film veers off course when Kennedy makes a ham-fisted comparison equating film critics to hecklers. Plenty of others here have explained why that's a terrible comparison, so I don't need to explain why again.From that mission on, it feels like the film is nothing but JK whining that no one liked Son of the Mask. I'm a bit bitter about the bait-and-switch done here. He shows us a brief clip of SotM that's supposed to convince us that the entire thing is funny, and assumes that this gets us 100% on board with his belief that everyone who criticized it is fully wrong and/or mean-spirited. And EVERYONE he finds either didn't watch it or didn't like it. He mopes around between sadness and anger, never once stopping to consider that just maybe Son of the Mask really was a terrible film.In fact, he seems to be really stuck on the concept that there is no such thing as a terrible movie whatsoever. Kennedy argues that because each opinion on a film is just an opinion, not a fact. However, most folks would accept that if a movie is universally hated by both professional critics and the viewing public, tanks at the box office, and gets singled out by Rotten Tomatoes as one of the 100 worst movies of the decade, as Son of the Mask was, then it's a cute secure bet to call it a terrible movie. There is such a thing as a terrible film.He has some valid points about how mean-spirited and personal-level criticisms of movies are excessively cruel, but these points seem to receive lost in the mess of the post-heckler part of the movie. It's unfocused and has a lot of logical leaps. One minute all film critics are scum, the next minute Roger Ebert is a nice and well-respected exception (even though he's just as popular for tearing into truly terrible movies as writing nice reviews), the next we see some child telling that Ebert is an idiot and an out-of-context clip that makes Beyond the Valley of the Dolls look really bad, fully missing the mission that that movie was intentionally schlocky. One minute a professional film critic is a valid career with a legitimate purpose, the next they're all scum again. One minute he's accepting of the concept of creative criticism that doesn't attack on a private level, the next 25 minutes, no one could ever have a negative opinion about anything.We're treated to a parade of popular flop-makers that we're supposed to feel sympathy for, but don't, because we're still not convinced that there's no such thing as a terrible movie. Bringing in folks involved with incredibly terrible films like Joel Schumaker, Carrot Top, and Uwe Boll to argue your mission only further cements the concept that your film was terrible and that you're just being bitter about everyone's natural reaction to it.However, I thought that the part about how the Web has made everyone into an elitist critic with a tendency to hate everything was interesting ("0 out of 4 waffles?"). I search folks who come to IMDb, give a good-but-not-great film 0/10 stars and a review of "THIS WUZ The WURST MUVEE EVER LOLz!" to be some of the largest morons on the planet, and their opinions to be about as worthless as he tells they are. JK also has an interesting concept where he confronts some of his harshest, most personal-level critics to see if they'll tell the same things to his face. But his reaction to one of those is so terribly immature and unfunny (and I'm no prude) that it ruins the entire exercise.In conclusion, I think that Kennedy made this movie too soon. His emotions about everyone's reaction to Son of the Mask were still too raw, and that got in the method of his ability to create a coherent documentary. Had he made it two or three years later, he probably would have been thinking clearly enough to leave out some of the moments that I'm sure felt gratifying to him, but just alienated his audience, like his contradictory opinions on Ebert or his treatment of the last critic he met in person.
It's a tiny weird and very ironic - to review Heckler, a documentary that speaks out specifically on movie criticism. Despite the game and promotional materials suggesting that it focuses on those who heckle stand up comedians, the movie has a change of heart half method through, switching its efforts over to berating movie critics. Therein lies one of the bigger issues with Heckler: the two subject don't have much to do with one another, despite Jamie Kennedy's, the star of the film, attempts at correlating them. Besides this major flaw, Heckler is an entertaining film. Personally, I disagree with nearly each mission of view featured within Heckler, but the movie held my interest, containing what gotta be hundreds of various interviews with celebrities.The first half of Heckler focuses primarily on audience members at stand-up comedy shows who take it upon themselves to interrupt the performance, insult the comedian, or occasionally even test and steal the spotlight by finishing the jokes. While this may not seem like a large trouble to most, the movie demonstrates how hecklers have become an increasingly huge trouble for stand up comedians. Interviews with a myriad of celebrity comedians, including David Cross, Bill Maher and Tom Green among others, present the frustrations, self-doubt and career repercussions comedians face because of unruly patrons. Heckler also documents some of the more extreme situations as well, including an assault on a stand-up by an offended viewer, a musician who smashes his guitar over an unruly mans head, and the infamous Michael Richards incident. This portion of Heckler does a nice job of shedding light on an trouble most folks have never given a second-thought to.This is later abandoned in favor of bashing movie critics, especially, but not limited to, the internet kind. There are a several legitimate points made about criticism, particularly how in the "internet" age, more attention is focused on deriding and humiliating the actors/directors who created the film, then critiquing the movie itself. While this does present a gradual decrease in the quality of movie criticism over the years, it's still very hard to sympathize with the different movie directors interviewed within the film, who all seem to take movie criticisms, and the tiny jabs that come with many of them, method too far. Anyone working within the entertainment business has to have thick skin, it comes with the job. One of these featured directors is Paul Chilsen, who supposedly dropped out of film-making because his first detail got terrible reviews. This isn't the fault of the critics; he simply wasn't slash out for the business.However, no performer featured in Heckler comes across as infantile and whiny as the star of the movie himself, Jamie Kennedy. It's a wonder the boy ever made it through high school, as it is frequently demonstrated throughout the movie that he is unable to take the slightest criticisms of his work. When confronting two teenage hecklers, Kennedy doesn't seem to care about the fact that his present was disrupted; his only concern seems to be that they didn't search it funny, as he starts to tell "What do you know about comedy? Who are you to decide what's funny". They're your audience, Jamie. They paid cash to see your show, and while they don't have a right to crash it for others, they have each right to decide whether it's funny or not. If you don't feel like folks could judge your work, perhaps you shouldn't be performing it for them.Kennedy also starts meeting with critics who have given his last detail film, Son of the Mask, a terrible review. It becomes more apparent that Kennedy just can't agree the fact that folks dislike it or another movies of his. He blames others for his own failures as an actor/writer. It's not just the insulting reviews that Kennedy has a trouble with: he has a trouble with any review that speaks negatively of the film. In Kennedy's dream world, everyone would be forced to play each single piece of art out there, for fear of upsetting the artists. Kennedy takes offense to Richard Roeper's review stating he wanted to walk out of Son of the Mask. The ensuing confrontation is hilarious, as Kennedy attempts to change Roeper's mind by telling in all seriousness that the film was trying to push fresh boundaries...by having a baby with super powers who should throw people. In other scene, Kennedy confronts a critic, Peter Grumbine, who seems to search Jamie's overreaction rather funny. At the end of the exchange, Jamie now calls Grumbine evil, putting someone who dislikes his movie among the ranks of Hitler, Charles Manson and Osama Bin Laden. Even if you still have the slightest doubt after watching the film that Kennedy is overreacting, the deleted scenes could clear everything up: Kennedy freaks out on a mate who merely told one of his comedy bits didn't work.Perhaps the most alarming thing is many of the director's insistence that no one has the right to judge their work, that anyone who speaks negatively of their work misunderstands it. It shows a finished lack of consideration for the audience, and makes one wonder why these self-proclaimed masters of movie even bother showing their work to audiences if they don't care about the reaction. The one exception is Uwe Boll, possibly the most hated boy in the film-making business. While he does have an organized boxing bout with critics in the movie, letting off a bit of steam, he never once speaks out vs movie criticism. Perhaps this is why someone like Boll is increasingly getting better (his two recent films have had some support) while folks like Jamie Kennedy, Joel Schumacher and Eli Roth are continuously getting worse and worse. In the end, it's not movie criticism that's destroying the movie business, but Kennedy's (and others) inability to learn from the criticism.
I have never written a movie review here before, but Heckler now compelled me to do so. One thing I gleaned from the film was an appeal to critics: Don't be mean for the sake of being mean. Instead, create the criticism constructive. I aim to do that here.I will begin by telling I really enjoyed hearing the perspective of all the performers and artists on the topics of heckling and criticism. Since the interview topics are funny and talented people, the resulting string of talking heads is now quite entertaining. As for the topics matter, I have everytime been sympathetic towards comedians who have to endure hecklers while on stage, but this film really hit the mission home. Also interesting was the footage of current heckling incidents, and the sometimes shocking reactions from the performer.Jamie Kennedy, the de facto host of the movie, was nice for the most part, but some sequences were more effective than others. He was at his greatest when his humor was self-deprecating. When Jamie confronted a critic, read their review out loud, and then sat there with a sort of deflated, forlorn look on his face as the critic continued to insult him, that was nice stuff. But when he went on the attack, such as insulting one guy's babysitting job, or asking a critic about his sex life, he was turning into the very mean-spirited critic that he had been admonishing. If he instead became the better person, and turned the another cheek, he would have been a more sympathetic (and funnier) character. Still, his performance overall was good.As for the treatment of movie criticism, I felt like there required to be more balance. There could have been some acknowledgment that movie critics deliever a valuable source of consumer information. When I go to see a movie, I have to create a 1/2 hour to 1 hour drive, sometimes pay for parking, pay $10 or more admission, and devote 2 hours of my life to watching it. Before doing so, I would like to know if it is worth the money, time, and effort. Movie reviews are an essential software in making this determination. I am a consumer, and a film is a product I am purchasing. How is it any various from reading reviews for any another product before buying it? Why are vehicle reviewers not berated for what they do? How about Consumer Reports, which reviews just about any product you can think of? As for internet reviewers, how about the customer reviews on amazon.com, or rei.com, or any major internet retail site? They may not be professional reviewers, but their opinions can be meaningful in huge numbers. When 100 owners give something a nice (or bad) review, that is helpful notification if I am thinking of buying that product. I think it is also a false argument to recommend that movie critics lack credibility because most of them have never made a movie themselves. Back to the vehicle reviewer analogy, I bet most of them have never manufactured cars, but they have driven enough of them to separate a finely tuned machine from a lemon.So, while I enjoyed Heckler overall, I couldn't support but leave a tiny disappointed knowing it should have been much better if it was made with a tiny less hostility and a tiny more thoughtfulness. With this approach, I think these filmmakers should turn a nice film into a nice one.
