Heckler is a comedic documentary film exploring the increasingly critical world we live in. After starring in a film that was critically bashed, Jamie Kennedy takes on hecklers and critics and ask some interesting questions of people such as George Lucas, Bill Maher, Mike Ditka, Rob Zombie, Howie Mandel and many more.

This hilarious documentary pulls no punches as you see an uncensored look at just how nasty and mean the fight is between those in the spotlight and those in the dark.

Released 2007. Director: Michael Addis. Documentary film.

    over one hour of constant whining

    • Don says:

      I kind of agree with you. There was a *lot* of complaining. I do not like the fact that they didn’t bring up the subject of good critics and constructive criticism until the very last 10 minutes, and said nothing more about it then a few quotes.


      Very one-sided.

    • Jay says:

      Is your comment a joke?… because it is hard to catch something like that on the internet.

      How is it one sided? It is the opinions of the people who deal with heckling first hand. Hecklers are dicks and they bring down comedy shows. The crowd is there for the comedian to work and use in their act, not the other way around.

      I thought this was very funny, many good comics on here.

      • Don says:

        I am quite serious with my comment. I have not said I despise all hecklers who ruin a show, I am talking about the true critics, who have been studying comedy or moviemaking for years and years, and who the people presented in this documentary talk about in the very end. If one does not watch the full documentary, including the last 10 minutes, you would get the impression that all comedians and film-makers hate *all* critizism.

        • Don says:

          Damnit, typo. I meant “I have not said I do NOT despise all hecklers”. I hate those fuckers just as much as you do!

        • Jay says:

          Sorry for the confusion, I meant ray’s comment. He is heckling the anti-heckler doc…

          I see your point Don, but it wasn’t overtly biased. I thought it was well put together. To be a critic I’ll rate it 5/6 pumpkins on here.

    1. sorry jamie, i see where you’re coming from + i like you in scream, but son of the mask really just wasn’t very good.
    2. wtf kind of idiot doesn’t like jon lovitz + david cross! >=0(
    3. i think jewel + bill hicks handled insults the best.

    Last two parts of this documentary are missing. First two parts were mildly interesting. I am not American and did not recognise any of the people interviewed therefore do not know whether I would find their comedy funny or not but I did chuckle a little at some of their anecdotes. Are hecklers a good or bad thing? Constructive criticism is useful but abuse is abuse and unhelpful.

    • Jonas says:


      all of the above videos are working. Please refresh this page as the two last videos most likely didn’t load properly for you.

    sometimes some hecklers are really funny. but most of the time they are mean. and i don’t like people, who say something is sh*t but can not constructively support their opinion.

    but what i get out of the documentary that jamie kind of don’t take well when someone doesn’t think he’s the best. i’ve seen quite some of his work. and most of the time he’s just not funny. or maybe i don’t dig him. he seems like he’s trying to hard to be funny, but comes across childish and annoying. but hey, i’m no professional critic.

    it’s just that sometimes i have the feeling that they’ve been told how great they are so many times, that when they actually aren’t, they don’t like the criticism.

  5. Nobody says:

    After watching this, the last thing i want to be is a critic… but this was a pretty crap documentary.

    Enjoyed it. An entertaining and insightful take on a relevant and compelling subject. The dialogue had too many words.
