About the Movie
The house is rockin' and the laughs are rollin' as comedians Steve Harvey (The Steve Harvey Show), D. L. Hughley (The Hughleys), Cedric The Entertainer (The Steve Harvey Show) and Bernie Mac (Life) meet in this riotously comedy summit directed by Spike Lee. Inspired by the highest-grossing comedy tour in history, The Original Kings of Comedy captures four of today's hottest stand-ups live and uncensored, and in engaging backstage footage and interviews. Emcee Steve Harvey and his fellow funnymen take rib-tickling aim at sports personalities, church services, bill collectors, hip-hop and much more. For comedy fans and anyone who could use two hours of non-stop laughs, The Original Kings of Comedy is a royal treat.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Contains an honest handful of sly and hilarious moments.
Fresh: A consistently hilarious assemblage of highlights from the hit concert tour of the same name.
Fresh: Ranks right up there with Pryor's Live on Sunset Strip, Eddie Murphy's Raw and Martin Lawrence's You So Crazy.
Fresh: Seeing the film in a crowded theater is a lot more fun than watching it on TV would be, and the crappy, grainy look does create a sort of you-are-there immediacy.
Why only rent?!?!?!?!
I understand the politics regarding why items are allowed for rent and not purchase. However it is terribly disappointing that this is not available for purchase. I want it to own on my ipod and I cannot do that. Not very happy at all. The rating is for the movie which is excellent! These four are still the funniest comedians still in the business!
This movie is absolutely hilarlious!!
If you're looking for original comedy that makes you bend over in laughter, this is the movie for you. All of the Kings bring their top game to this filmed comedy show, with the funniest being the late Betnie Mac. I would give it 5 stars, but I'm not a huge fan of DL Hughley.
Funniest Standup Movie of All Time!
This is a classic that will keep you in tears for two hours! It's a shame there must be some behind the scenes BS for a consumer not to have the option to purchase this on my Ipod.......
