Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's an affectionate, sometimes downright slobbery career salute with a soft, unexamined center - a moving experience for all involved, no doubt, but one of limited interest outside the celebrity bubble it depicts. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jun 10, 2014

Fresh: Not that 'Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon' is likely to do the kind of business most Myers movies do ... but it's competent enough to suggest the filmmaker has more arrows in his quiver than 'yeah, baby.' – Bob Mondello, NPR, Jun 6, 2014

Fresh: You may relish the gossipy, dishy stuff Myers serves up. For a while, you can feel like a part of the golden circle. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 12, 2014

Fresh: For all the love emanating from client-pals Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Emeril Lagasse, and Steven Tyler, there's a sadness to this movie that remains just off camera. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jun 12, 2014

Customer Reviews

A nice guy who didn't finish last?

3.5 stars. Mike Myers made not so much a documentary as a loving tribute to his pal Gordon, manager to the stars. And the A-listers fawning over him (Michael Douglas, Alice Cooper, Sly Stallone, more) is a bit much. Still, their admiration seems sincere, and Gordon really does seem like the very rare (unique?) case of someone who has thrived in show business while remaining a genuinely nice, grounded, down to earth guy. He has had ann outstanding career, making fortunes for himself and a stunning list of music stars, movie stars, and celebrity chefs. He's enjoyed the earthly benefits: a house on Maui, a very long list of women including Sharon Stone (despite looking like your aunt tax accountant), and VIP platinum status everywhere he goes. Meyers goes into sad-clown overdrive trying to show there are some downsides, and it does seem that despite being surrounded by celebrities and beauties, there's something solitary and a bit distant about the guy. He also seems to have some interesting thoughts on empty fame, though Meyers doesn't push very hard. A real doc would have to be made by someone who isn't one of Gordon's friends and beneficiaries, but he comes off as such a likable guy you can't complain too much. He's the real reason to watch this, not the A-listers around him.

Fantastic Surprise

Got this by accident but sure glad I did. I found the entire thing to be entertaining, interesting, and often comical. How come I never heard of Shep sooner? This guy deserves to be idolized. Great interviews. Not one boring. This is a must see

I wish I was him!!!

What a life!! Great story!!
