"I'm not usually one to write reviews, but I saw this movie at a sneak preview at the Tribeca Film Festival and it was freaking awesome! There were so many comedians/actors/celebrities in it that all told their personal, hilarious accounts of dealing with hecklers. Not only that, but Jamie makes a ton of great points about all those idiot hecklers that don't actually have talents of their own and just take it out on those who do. Watch this movie!! I guarantee you'll love it."
Will stand up as a classic stand up comedy related film.

"i think the title says it all, this movie would have been better if they would have stuck with the stand-ups and actors, but it just becomes a whine fest for jamie kennedy...... this movie is good for about 15 min. thats about how long the comedians interviews last!!!!!"
PRAISE FOR HECKLER and JAMIE KENENDY!!!

"From the reviews I've read so far, it's pretty apparent that the negative ones are obviously from Jamie Kennedy "haters" which doesn't surprise me because that's what I expect from these repetitive folks who just keep bashing Jamie Kennedy for the same reasons over and over again, and sadly alot of them actually get paid for their reviews...whatever... As for the thumbs up reviews, I'm with them...I give credit to Jamie Kennedy along with the other comedians who contributed to this film for taking a stand against hecklers and shedding a different light on a subject that really is often overlooked. I loved all of the different commentaries from all of the different performers ranging from Carrot Top to Louie Anderson to Roseann Barr..this is a film definately worth watching especially if you love watching comedy...it will make you think twice before heckling an onstage comedian ever...definately CHECK THIS MOVIE OUT...it is very entertaining.."
Interesting, but problematic in parts

"I liked this documentary. There were a number of really great ideas touched here, but there were problems with it as well.
First the good.
This is a topic that is not talked about too much yet to me is very fascinating. I really enjoy looking behind the scenes of the standup comic world.
The documentary in a blunt way gave the critics a little bit of "the golden rule".
There were numerous interviews with comedians that I really admire who said some very interesting and insightful comments, such as Lewis Black, David Cross, Dave Atell, and Patton Oswalt to name a few.
There were psychologists and other professionals interviewed who also made interesting points.
This documentary not really make its points clearly and concisely. There were many good ideas touched on, but not investigated as they should have been. Such as the egos in both performers and in critics. If Mr. Kennedy is sad about being Heckled than maybe he should consider another field of work, obviously his ego is really tied into showbiz and showbiz is not for the thin skinned.
Yet, much of the heckling and criticism is very mean spirited, cruel and self-serving. Heckling is just rude. There is usually just a drunk person who wants attention or has a personality disorder.
Criticism, in my opinion, should explain why one does not like something. Though critics are often correct in their assessments, it is not fair just to say that one does not like something, then get mean spirited about it. If one is not able to give a good reason for not liking something, then one should not be a critic. A critic has to know what makes things good or bad, not just be intuitive about it and being mean spirited seems to be the replacement for that knowledge and it is self-serving to the critic only and does nothing to change or improve the entertainer.
There were also some of the interviews which were pointless and did not add to the documentary or were redundant or tangential.
