Rating: 3/4 -- It's ... entertaining, not to mention revealing about the emotional toll exacted upon people who, in O'Brien's words, "feed their bone marrow to the wood chipper that is television."

3.5 stars out of 5 -- [A] fast-moving and gut-busting dispatch from the front lines of pain management, as the late night comic attempts to overcome his anger the only way he knows how.

Rating: 4/5 -- It's hard to feel sorry for a guy who banked millions for not hosting "The Tonight Show" anymore, but it's also fascinating to see a man this compulsively driven to get back in front of people and tell jokes, to hear the laughter, to soak in the applause. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- An alternately revealing and concealing vanity project that gives O'Brien a chance to vent his anger, ventilate his underlings (with his rapier wit) and play rock star alongside such celebrity enablers as Eddie Vedder and Jack White. Full Review
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
Jul 29, 2011
[A]n unexpectedly revealing, disconcerting documentary that benefits from the filmmaker's unmediated approach, his home-movie-quality visual style, and his controlled use of on-the-fly moments. -- Grade: A-

Rating: 2/4 -- Meta-irony can get a guy who's still grinding an ax only so far.

Product Description:

Director Rodman Flender offers a candid look at one of the most difficult chapters in Conan O'Brien's turbulent career while following the popular late-night talk-show host on his 32-city "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour." In 2009, O'Brien took over THE TONIGHT SHOW from host Jay Leno; seven short months later, he was looking for a new job. Though his split from NBC was undoubtedly painful, O'Brien did his best to keep his spirits high and his fans laughing, even going so far as to embark on a cross-country comedy tour after being prohibited from appearing on television. In this film, we see not only the public image put forward by a beloved yet embattled television personality, but also the fierce determination of an entertainer to persevere after watching his dreams go up in flames.
