Movie Info

John Landis' star-filled, documentary is a portrait of a bygone era (some keywords: schtick, Miami, Shecky) and most of all of a man named Rickles, a giant who continues to stride among us at the age of 81, his timing deadlier than ever.

  • A hilarious movie about a surprisingly funny man.

  • Like Scorsese's Casino, in which Rickles had a small role, Mr. Warmth tips its hat to a demolished way of life--Vegas power having transferred from the Mob to the even scarier thugs of corporations.

    Jun 28, 2008 | Full Review…
  • The dichotomy of Rickles' customary matador-theme entrance and tongue-in-cheek but true theme song "I'm a Nice Guy" captures Rickles' secret of success: you gotta love him.

    Feb 18, 2008 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Landis doesn't buttress Rickles' shtick with anything but smoke and mirrors, and the film falls away like a cheap suit.

    Oct 25, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Confirms that Rickles's enduring popularity as the high priest of putdowns can be chalked up to an admirable national trait to not take ourselves too seriously.

    Words fail me. He's one of the funniest people alive, still. I found myself almost passing out once, and I laughed until I cried more than once. Don't miss this.

    Think W.C. Fields meets your dirty grandpa, and you get Don Rickles. Going behind the scenes of Rickles forty year career is a treat, and even a nice glimpse of his act is seen through the eyes of comedians of know him. Emulate him. Love him. It's really an adorable traipse into show biz.
