Rated PG-13 101 minutes 2014

Gabriel Iglesias is hardly the first stand-up comic to talk openly in his act about traumatic experiences, but a bold aspect of his concert film The Fluffy Movie is that it frames his entire career in terms of personal pain. Fluffy opens with a skit depicting his conception (his mother, fleeing an abusive husband, has a brief fling with a mariachi singer) and early adolescence (in which he escapes his lonely childhood by watching the concert film Eddie Murphy Raw). Not long after he takes the stage at the SAP Center in San Jose, he goes into an extended bit about his life-threatening obesity and emergency gastric bypass surgery. The bit climaxes with Iglesias explaining that one reason he wants to stay alive is so he can continue making people laugh. Once again, comedy gives him a reason to keep going. Continue reading >>
