'The Fluffy Movie' is a solid and appealing comedy special for the whole family.

I'm not sure why Universal decided to title this 'The Fluffy Movie'. At first glance, some people might think this is a kids film, something the whole family can watch. Sure, it has superstar comedian Gabriel Iglesias on the front cover, which should entice people into finding out more, but this is not a narrative film.

This is Iglesias's most recent stand up special, and whether you know or have never heard of Gabriel Iglesias, you're in for a treat with 'The Fluffy Movie'. Iglesias has been around for a while now, playing comedy clubs and sold out theatres. He's been on the talk show circuit for years and even scored roles in Marlon Wayans's 'Haunted House 2' and 'Magic Mike'. He's a jack of all trades. But nothing can compare to his stand up and brilliant method of storytelling.

The special starts out with a brief narrative film that depicts Iglesias being born and growing up with his family. The main point arrives when he and his mother goto a video store, and he convinces his mother and the video store clerk to let him rent 'Eddie Murphy: Raw', which changed his life forever. This transitions into the present grownup Iglesias coming out on stage to a sold out crowd in San Francisco. While still a big man, Iglesias has lost a bunch of weight.

He looks good here, as he discusses his life to great comedic effect. Gabriel's method of story telling is very funny indeed. He takes some rather traumatic instances from his own life, stuff that might have not been funny when it happened, but looking back now, is quite funny, and tells some amazing stories that conjures up some big belly laughs. He talks about his weight loss, his travels to foreign countries, a trip to a weight loss clinic, and living life with his bratty and spoiled son. His timing is flawless and his delivery is perfect with each story and joke.

Where some comedians might discuss vague or general assumptions of the human race and the things we might do that are odd, Iglesias only pulls from his personal life, giving us a very intimate conversation with him. And each topic he bounces on is relatable and very funny. He wraps everything up with a nice, charming anecdote that leaves us satisfied and wanting more. And no, Iglesias is not a foul-mouthed comedian here. In fact, this special is rated PG-13, and while it may contain a little bit of cursing, parents shouldn't mind. 'The Fluffy Movie' is a solid and appealing comedy special for the whole family.

Funniest Fluffy Ever!

OMG,I watched this with my husband and laughed so hard! Once again Fluffy hits a home run with his jokes. I like that he is not dirty,really does not use bad language yet can make you laugh so hard you sides hurt. He also looks great since he lost weight.

But Fluffy made this one very real by sharing a lot about his son and father. At points near the end I was almost in tears yet still laughing. Fluffy really made this one a major hit in our home since he really exposed his personal side of course in a funny but real way. I think it was a great comedy special! For any step parent out there you will know what I mean.

Although it is nothing groundbreaking or history-making, The Fluffy Movie is a fantastic work of comedian art

One type of film that hasn't exactly progressed or evolved heavily in recent decades is that of the stand-up comedy movie. After the 80s when it was dominated by Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy the popularity and the quantity of this type of film dwindled quite heavily. The demand for the art form wasn't as heavy since the inception of YouTube, Comedy Central, and the ions of other ways to hear funny stories and jokes. But then in recent years we have seen Kevin Hart give it a quiet comeback with back to back successful films concerning his stand-up. Although they lack the legendary and timeless appeal of the 80s stand-up films like Himself, Live on the Sunset Strip, and Raw; it was a step in the right direction.

The Fluffy Movie however has knocked Hart out of the park and just might be the best of the stand-up comedy movies since Original Kings of Comedy.

Gabriel Iglesias has come a very long way since his Nickelodeon and Last Comic Standing days. He has developed quite a feverish fanbase, has gotten plenty of attention amongst his peers, and has become one of the top YouTube sensations in the entire internet. What makes him stand out is his ability to provide sound effects while delivering humbling and relatable stories full of humor, and full of heart. His fans are dedicated, his fans are also quite knowledgeable about his running jokes and his family scenarios, which is something you see in very, very few comedians. The personal touch of Gabriel Iglesias allows for it to always sound like he is talking to you, directly to you, as opposed to a big crowd.

Unlike the vindictive ways of Louis C.K. and Bill Burr, Iglesias never looks or sounds like a guy that is trying to get under your skin, he comes off as a funny member in the family that is always looking for a good joke. The down-to-earth nature gives him a more nurturing audience---you'll never see Iglesias have to battle his audience like George Carlin, Bill Burr, or Richard Pryor.

And of course now we have The Fluffy Movie. In this special, Iglesias talks about all types of things from health to family life to even India. The beauty of his stand-up is that you can see yourself in most of his stories, he comes off as a blue collar person living the blue collar life, even if he has success ringing behind his ears in the form of a beautiful stage set resembling the Bay Area. And this may come off as meandering the audience into thinking he is not living comfortably, but that's not the issue---for example: Kevin Hart in one of his films had a bit about one of his friends renting out Disneyland for an entire afternoon. Was it funny? Yes. Could we relate? Nope.

Gabriel Iglesias has a bit about how back when he was growing up he had to perform surgery to save his Nintendo Entertainment System. Was it funny? Definitely. Could we relate? Most of us most certainly can. His physical movements when saving his NES was one of the highlights of the show.

He is descriptive without getting too offensive (PG-13 stand up comic? Whaaaaaaaaaaat?), he isn't afraid of physically describing the story, and ultimately throws a heavy dosage of heart with each of his performances. The delivery is always spot-on, even when the punchline can take a very long time to arrive. And finally as the added bonus, can do hundreds of unique voices and impressions as well as provide some Latin flair to his jokes.

The Fluffy Movie however really picks up in the third act when Gabriel Iglesias goes out for an emotional loop and provides a hilarious yet very heartfelt tale involving closure with some past demons. Without spoiling too much, it took the audience in California as well as my viewing audience by surprise at the circumstances that had played out in recent years with him. It got quite personal as even Iglesias was having some trouble delivering the material. But the mixing of jokes and emotional punches made for a surprising and jarring journey that hits close to home, and it sinks deeper within the of your soul than the average dosage of content coming from a comedian. Luckily for all of us, the final sentence ended with a fantastic punchline----that had been set up half an hour ago.

In terms of cinematography and direction the movie keeps it simple, keeps it focused, and relies solely and mainly on the quirky, energetic, and lovable Iglesias. And it works every step of the way, and it never overstays its welcome. Although Gabriel Iglesias does nothing new or extremely different to attract a new crowd, the die-hard fans and followers of his work will be entertained, delighted, and satisfied with the final product. Whether or not this launches Iglesias to a new level of success, there is no denying the magic and the talent of what I consider to be now one of the top comedians in the business.
