I'll be honest. I've never been a Joan Rivers fan. I can remember avoiding The Tonight Show as a kid whenever she'd fill in while Johnny was on vacation. This documentary went a long way in changing my perception of her. For one thing, I had never seen her doing her stand-up in small clubs. She's shockingly dirty! While the film does address some of the things Joan is well known for like the plastic surgery and her roller-coaster career, it digs deeper to reveal an extremely hard-working, vulnerable person. I thought it was excellent.
