Get Bruce (1999)

Affectionate tribute to Bruce Vilanch (1948- ), who writes material for celebrities who make public appearances, from Oscar hosts and award recipients to Presidents. We meet his mom and see photos of his childhood; in Chicago, he writes for the Tribune and then heads West. Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, and Bette Midler talk with him and to the camera about working with Bruce, and we also watch Bruce help others prepare for Liz Taylor's 60th, Bill Clinton's 50th, and an AIDS awards banquet where the hirsute, rotund Vilanch lets his emotions show.

The Reviews for Get Bruce (1999) 720p


A terrible film about a terrible manReviewed byali_mansonVote: 1/10

what a terrible film and what a terrible man. this is one of the worst pieces of hollywood self-serving, syrupy nonsense i've ever had the misfortune to watch.

it's fair enough when the egg-producers all get together and buy "Eat more eggs" campaigns. if this is the best the Bruce Vilanch Marketing Board can come up with...

i have long thought of hollywood as being so capable of parodying itself that external parody was unnecessary and this just confirms my belief.

if i didn't know better, i'd think i was watching a Mr. Show sketch parodying Bruce Vilanch. i wish...

if you like watching sincerity so contrived it's appalling in its insincerity, 'fly on the wall' segments about the comedy process so contrived they're hard to watch and hollywood celebrities generally patting each other on the back to extreme, don't hesitate to rent this - you'll love it.

i think even the most devoted Bruce Vilanch fan will be made nauseous by the awful song that plays out over the closing credits.

Get Bruce? get lost...

humorous portrait of a tremendously funny manReviewed byeewittmeVote: 7/10

sure, get bruce is pretty funny, but it trips a bit...the film begins with the typical "bunch of people talking about the subject." this does not work. i found myself bored and thinking i was going to make a big mistake.

"get bruce" is at its best when it shows the subject (a guy who writes jokes for celebs) at work. the scenes where bruce is working one on one with billy crystal, whoopi goldberg, robin williams, et al, are some of the laugh-out-loud funniest things i've seen in a long time. and i don't even like robin williams.

sadly, when all these portraits are done, the directors scope pans out again and tries to make general statements about the subject. here, he again fails. perhaps it would have been funnier had the filmmakers consulted bruce.

six of ten

Funny, inside look at comedy writingReviewed byGreg-214Vote: 10/10

The whole theater laughed at this one. A peek at a comedy writer most people have never heard of. People who are incredible snobs won't like it because, after all, this guy writes jokes for the Oscars and popular entertainers.

I happen to think Bette Middler is incredibly funny ... same for Robin Williams, etc. This guy works for these people and anyone who is not in the entertainment business will probably find it interesting to see how he does it, how he tailors his approach for each client, etc. But the payoff is the humor, watching the clips of his clients preparing material and doing it live.
