Movie Reviews

Witness a genius of the form performing at his peak!
Evgeny Rahman | MA, USA | 05/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To watch Louis C.K. perform is to understand that life is a brief, violent revolt against the entropic nature of this universe. Things fall apart, dreams don't come true and time cannot be turned back. The horror of experiencing this is heightened for an intelligent, observant person such as Louis C.K. This DVD shows his brave stand against the darkness, making light of his life by showing its greatest follies.

Nothing is unfamiliar! Family, health, money, love - topics alien to no modern human being. His lancet wit cuts true, leaving you paralyzed with laughter - not the kind of laughter politely manufactured for the benefit of mixed company, but rather, the kind that leaves your abdominals hurting and your throat parched.

The further that Louis C.K. goes beyond the normal euphimism-filled commentary on daily life, the harder it gets to deny the relevance of this material to your personal journey through the world. This middle-aged man, unburdened by the handsomeness of the young and unimpeded by the perspective of the old, takes stock of his life, and in so doing, of yours as well.

Watch this performance by a genius of the form, captured here at the height of his mastery, but do not for one moment think that the time you spend with "Chewed Up" will not give you pause and bring to the surface a few unwanted realizations."
Completely Hilarious

"For my money, Louis C.K. is the current king of comedy. I love that no topic is off limits to him, and that he says things that we always think and feel but often don't have the guts to say. This ridiculously funny show is a perfect-follow up to his great "Shameless" special. If you're looking for big laughs while thinking "I can't believe he just said that--but it's so true" then look no further than Louis C.K."
Best comedian out there
J. Higgins | 06/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK, let me put it this way. I drove six hours to catch the recording of this show. It was so worth the drive. I honestly hadn't laughed that hard in years. Louis CK is one of the best comedians out there but for some reason is not a big name like unfunny stand up comedians zuch as Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia. Which is tragic because he has truly mastered his craft of making people laugh. The title, Chewed Up, is a reference to something at the end of his act. The material can teeter on deeply offensive but that's if you don't have a sense of humor. It has great replay value and you'll laugh each time you watch it. Do yourself a favor, drop the Cinnabon and buy this DVD."
Edgy Family Humor?
Quagland Clevemire | 01/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've always liked Louis C.K. because he seemed quirky and intelligent and knew how to construct a really funny joke. It wasn't until I heard his new material on "Chewed Up" that I gained a new respect for him. A lot the material on this album is family-oriented and his perspective on the institution of marriage and being a family man. This is dangerous territory.

Similar to Eddie Murphy only making banal family films, the validity of comedian comes into question when they become suburbanites and their material focuses solely on that fact. I've heard comedians say that they consciously avoid writing any material involving their family life because they will lose their "edge." Louis C.K., surprisingly, shines with this new set. The title itself is an indication of how he feels in this role as a family man. He riffs on his sexless marriage, the joys and pains of raising two daughters and his horrible eating habits and physique.

If you've seen the underrated and prematurely canceled HBO series "Lucky Louie," you'll have an idea of what to expect from "Chewed Up." C.K. doesn't show the usual reverence for family-life that most comedians show. He gives you the gritty and unpleasant aspects of being a father and husband, but always tempering that with the affection he has for his family."
