  1. 70
    Griffin's stand-up material is consistently upstaged by sequences of him interacting with old friends and family members.
  2. 70
    We do glimpse the dynamic interplay between rising comedian Eddie Griffin's hilarious obsessions and the loving, screwed-up people who made him what he is.
  3. 50
    If its star were more consistently funny, it might have worked, but the film opens with a string of dreadful Sept. 11 gags and takes a while to recover.
  4. The whole nutty crew finds it rollicking good fun to see themselves lampooned. But there is an unmistakable sorrow behind the humor.
  5. 50
    Gallo makes some fatal mistakes in his direction. As Griffin talks, he adds sound effects that are distracting and annoying. It's actually an insult to the comic -- as if his jokes aren't clever enough on their own.
  6. 20
    It's nauseating, unfunny stuff, unmitigated by the revelation that Griffin's mom physically abused him.
