  • Wknd Box Office: Jersey Boys, Night Moves, The Rover, SuperMensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
    Blog Posts Movie Reviews SuperMensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon“: I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen such a pretentious, self-absorbed, Hollywood insider movie glorifying a scumbag. Made by Mike Myers (remember him? he’s now fat and sporting strange reddish hair), the movie is essentially a gushing “thank you” because the rich Hollywood insider who is the subject of the movie once let Myers stay at his luxe Hawaii mansion for two months. Myers would have done the world a favor had he stuck to sending a gift basket as thanks instead of this long bore. And make no mistake about the deceptive title. Shep Gordon, the subject of the film, is not a “SuperMensch.” He’s not even a mensch. Just a schmuck. And not anyone America should be celebrating. (That’s why it figures that Myers is Canadian.) Shep Gordon is an aging far-left, self-hating Jewish In Name Only (JINO), Hollywood liberal–the kind of Hellenist JINO the Maccabees would have beheaded with appropriate zeal. He spent the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s bringing down America through filth and sexual depravity and violence by representing various rock and showbiz acts and pushing the envelope in promoting them. His most prominent client was Alice Cooper. (And, PUH-LEEZE, don’t tell me–after performing naked and posing naked with a snake–that now that he’s a senior citizen, I should somehow respect Cooper for making some conservative statements. When it counted, he was on the wrong side. Now, he’s an aging has-been a la Dennis Miller, struggling to stay relevant.) If you’re annoyed by the disgusting, depraved behavior of performers like Miley Cyrus (or as we call her here, Miley Virus), you have only Shep Gordon to thank for that. He pioneered lewd-and-lascivious-behavior-as-marketing-technique with Cooper. Gordon explained that in order to get Cooper noticed and to sell his records, he wanted parents and authority to hate Cooper. So, to this end, Gordon instructed Cooper and his band to perform in the nude under completely transparent raincoats, so that parents would hate them and kids would love them. Then, he called the police to arrest them. Also, he instructed Cooper to pose in the nude with a snake, and he instructed truck drivers–whose trucks bore the nude poster–to pretend to break down and stall in the middle of main thoroughfares of London, so people would be held hostage by these nude posters. Of course, today, none of this is anything because Gordon pioneered the “art” of depraved marketing to the point that over the decades the envelope has been pushed far worse. By the way, to make the point about Cooper’s affinity for snakes, we are “treated” to an in-your-face close-up of a snake head swallowing a live mouse. Charming. Gordon also bragged about how he threw a live chicken into the audience at a music festival and revels in the fact that the audience tore this creature to pieces and threw the parts in the air and back at Cooper. We are also “treated” to charming visions of a chicken being torn up. Where is PETA when you need them? Today, police would rightfully arrest this rich jerk for his cruelty to animals and he’d probably do jail time, as he should. But the movie makes no negative judgment on this, or Gordon laughing at this savagery. Nope. All the movie does is applaud Gordon’s bragging about his life of sex and hard drugs and the wealth he acquired through it all. Gordon repeatedly mentions how his mother was a typical Jewish parent because she was cruel. And he doesn’t seem to like Jews or Judaism. His Hawaiian mansion is filled with statues of Buddha. He is into New Age crap and meditation. He hung out at the Playboy mansion and had sex with and married a Playboy bunny. Then, he married a young New Age, raw food chef, who could have been his granddaughter. And, throughout, he partied and did drugs with all the famous clients he repped and promoted. But for some reason, we are supposed to believe–as this movie obviously does–that this is a great guy because 1) he once “dated” (euphemism) Sharon Stone (as a fellow movie critic said coming out of the screening, “who didn’t?”) and 2) he paid money to raise the orphaned family of his dead, single-mother, former model, Black ex-girlfriend. Because Gordon got Communist Groucho Marx’s finances in order in Marx’s old age. Oh, and because Shep Gordon created the era of the celebrity chef and cooking channels on TV. And he invites celebrity friends like Sly Stallone, Michael Douglas, and Arnold Schwarzenegger to hang out at his Hawaii mansion and cooks for them. Therefore he must be great (in the world according to Hollywood pop culture). Who cares? I certainly did not. What I do care about–and so, likely, do you if you are reading this site–is the future of this country, and because of “men” like Shep Gordon, that future is much dimmer. He is the father of the Kardashians and the Teen Moms and the Real Housewives and Miley Cyrus. He made noxious stuff like that hip. He is one of the major architects of the counter-culture, anti-authoritarian BS that took America down and continues to do so to date. I don’t applaud anyone who thinks nude performers in public aimed at kids, chickens being torn apart alive, doing a ton of drugs, and sleeping around with Playboy sluts is funny or cool. But Shep Gordon brags and laughs about that throughout this whole self-absorbed fake-umentary. A mensch is a good guy–a “person of integrity . . . someone who is responsible, has a sense of right and wrong.” Shep Gordon is none of these, “super” or otherwise. In fact, he’s quite the opposite. And so the title of this movie should have been, “SuperSchmuck” or “SuperShtunk.” This hedonist jerk is the kind of ugly stereotype lustfully utilized by anti-Semites, who look for Jews that are bad for America, as fodder for their Jew-hating propaganda. In fact, if I were a member of the Klan or Stormfront, I’d make Shep Gordon my poster boy. Or if I were the ghost of Bin Laden or Arafat. Gordon was exactly the kind of guy Hitler would have loved to make just such a movie about. But Leni Riefenstahl is dead, and so a brainless, moronic has-been who was once the king of Wayne’s World, Mike Myers, has unwittingly assumed the position. Shep Gordon shouldn’t be celebrated. He should be condemned. When he’s gone–and it looks like that time is coming soon–America will be better off. But the damage he wrought on this formerly great country is irreparable.

    I suppose I should do one of these, since I failed to participate in our book symposium.FILM: There are a bunch of 2015 films that I still haven't seen, some of which I suspect I will really like.

    If you can make some kind of culturally-relevant point about a new movie or play, perhaps. Otherwise, I think you might want to invest your time elsewhere. ... Here is the kind of movie review ...

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
