Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film can't resist trying to turn Mr. Guccione into a tragic figure, an image that will have fewer buyers than his flagship magazine does today."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"It's dispiriting to see [Guccione] subjected to this paint-by-numbers biographical documentary."
‑ Simon Houpt, Globe and Mail
"This is a documentary about the totemic power of Bob Guccione and how he tried to change the world, one pubic hair at a time."
‑ Drew Taylor, The Playlist
"There are some wonderful moments in this film by Barry Avrich."
‑ Nancy DeWolf Smith, Wall Street Journal
"The film's talking heads format grinds on at times, but at least the quotes are good and occasionally even shocking."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Feels like a somewhat superficial, "authorized" bio that nonetheless holds attention via its surfeit of archival materials and input from diverse interviewees."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A remarkably incurious feature length documentary, it takes everything Guccione's friends, family and associates have to say at him at face value."
‑ Nathalie Atkinson, National Post
