Comedy - Those interested in comedy and behind-the-scenes workings at awards shows will enjoy this documentary on comedy writer Bruce Vilanch. The film's often salty humor makes the film inappropriate for children, who would not be interested, anyway.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
Get Bruce! is documentarian Andrew J. Kuehn's loving and entertaining tribute to the heretofore unheralded talent of comedy writer Bruce Vilanch, whose wit appears to be behind just about every awards show and every major comics' routine. Kuehn's point is not to explore how Vilanch became his ebullient, eccentric self, but to pay tribute to that person Vilanch has become, to raise the curtain on someone whose abilities have long remained hiding backstage. With Get Bruce!, it's likely that Bruce Vilanch is in the limelight to stay.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Who do Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Whoopi Goldberg call the funniest man in Hollywood? A guy you've never heard of until now: Bruce Vilanch. Chances are, when a star needs a little (or a lot of) help being funny, they'll say two words: "Get Bruce!”

Vilanch is one of the most sought after comedy writers in Hollywood. As head writer and regular square on the Hollywood Squares, he has helped bring the show unprecedented success. He has written for every type of variety show imaginable including the Quadruple Crown of Award Shows: The Oscars, The Emmys, The Tonys, and The Grammys. In fact, he co-wrote the last nine Academy Award telecasts, winning consecutive Emmys for the Billy Crystal hosted shows.

This is the movie that takes you behind the scenes of Hollywood's most glamorous events with a cast of luminaries including Roseanne, Carol Burnett, Michael Douglas, Nathan Lane, Shirley Maclaine, Stephen Segal, Elizabeth Taylor, Lily Tomlin, Sigourney Weaver and many more.
