Really well made and fun biopic, casting is awesome and everything is so light and fun
I never knew any of this about National Lampoons so while being very informative it is also a hilarious and touching story.
A really sweet biopic about a ridiculous character. Ending made me cry.
Funny and accurately depicts the guy’s struggles
Plenty of laughs -- early scenes are especially hilarious. In a crowded cast, Joel McHale's portrayal of Chevy Chase really stands out.
A hilarious look behind the founding of National Lampoon
It’s a celebration of modern comedy and a beautiful homage to the man who started it. Fuck the critics, this movie rocks.
An ingeniously made biopic which balances consistent laughs with a surprising edge. Perfectly captures the spirit of the national lampoon.
Great biopic of Doug Kenney. Hilarious cast and interesting narrative. Worth checking out the documentary for source material.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. It's funny, sad, interesting, weird and stupid.
