Rating: 3/5 -- Myers gives us the cinematic equivalent of a tabloid; it's fun, gossipy and light, but in the end is only supermeh. Full Review

Sight and Sound
This documentary portrait by Mike Myers (of Wayne's World and Austen Powers fame) of his friend Shep Gordon comes close to hagiography but is just about saved by great anecdotes, stylistic inventiveness and the low-key charm of the man himself. Full Review

It makes for a lively, entertaining guide to the LA music scene in the 70s and 80s and the film business - Gordon dabbled in movie production. Full Review
[T]his clubby documentary lauds the swellness and shrewdness of the talent manager Shep Gordon with the help of celebrities and the sunnily mellifluent subject himself.
New York Times
Rating: 3/5 -- He's brilliant! He's funny! He's a genius! He's a total lothario! This is seriously the only thing anyone says for the entire convulsing 1 1/2 hours. Full Review
Sunday Times (UK)
Celebrated SNL alumnus and AUSTIN POWERS star Mike Myers steps behind the camera for this documentary examining the life and legacy of beloved Hollywood insider Shep Gordon. A music manager whose chance run-in with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin back in 1968 led to an enduring career as a manager for the likes of Alice Cooper, Blondie, and Raquel Welch, Gordon later reinvigorated the culinary-arts industry as the driving force behind the concept of a "celebrity chef." In addition to exploring those aspects of Gordon's impressively multifaceted career, Myers' film also reveals how his subject's involvement with the Tibet Fund led to a close friendship with the Dalai Lama as a host of celebrities, including Sylvester Stallone, Emeril Lagasse, Willie Nelson, Michael Douglas, and Cooper, reflect on the man who helped to build countless careers in the entertainment industry.
