Rotten: Eddie notes he if had a gay son, he'd tie him to a bed and send in a whore every hour. "How can any father be proud of a having a gay son?" he asks bewilderedly.

Fresh: Even when some of his material has a "been there, heard that" sense to it, Griffin's outbursts of charisma help elevate the overall presentation.

I thought this comedy special was going to be downright hilarious. While it had some funny moments, Dysfunktional Family disappointed. It was too reliant on racial humor, something that all black comics seem to fall back to if they run of other material. However, it's all racial humor I have heard before from Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, and Chris Rock. The 9/11 bits were OK but not as funny either. The best part of the documentary were about his crazy uncles and his white grandfather. True life is always funnier than observational humor. I am still a big Eddie Griffin fan but I think he is capable of doing much better than this.

First there was Richard Pryor, then there was Eddie Murphy, now there is Eddie Griffin. This movei is a must see, you will laugh so hard that you will have to leave the room for relief

Some very funny material on the standard stand-up topics of family, drugs, women, racism and politics. Griffin is at his best when he's at the helm, letting it all hang out.
